"Theseus-Tempel" Heldenplatz - Heros Square Tip by morgenhund
Heldenplatz - Heros Square, Vienna: 17 reviews and 40 photos
The Theseus-Tempel is now a building "without portfolio". It is now used as an exhibition space, in particular for young and up-and-coming artists. It was originally commissioned by Napoleon to be a replica of the Theseion in Athens, and was intended to house the statue of Theseus and the Minotaur by Canova. However, the statue now resides in the Kunsthistorisches Museum, where it has been since the KHM opened. The colonnade is a favourite meeting place for students and people on blind dates (although I have never had a blind date meeting here!).
Address: Main entrance from Heldenplatz
Directions: Volksgarten: U3/U2, Trams 1,2, J and D. Park open 6am-8pm in winter or 6am-10pm in summer.
