KHM - Kunsthistorisches Museum - Art History Museum, Vienna: 90 reviews and 212 photos
Kunsthistorisches Museum is one of the 2 best museums in Vienna, not only for the great collections that you will see there, but also for the great architecture of the building, that once belonged to the Hofburg and the royal court of the Austrian empire. Collections of paintings and other works of art were quite common at a royal court and many of the exhibits of today had been given as a donation by other emperors who visited Vienna in former times.
In order to see the best parts of the building, you have to get inside and pay for the entrance. Photography is no problem, you simply are not allowed to use a flash or tripod.
the most beautiful parts of the building are certainly the giant entrance-hall and the high dome with a restaurant / cafe underneath.
You are able to enter the cafe ONLY when you pay the entrance-fee for the museum !
