The Arik Brauer Haus in Gumpendorferstraße is another example of contemporary Viennese architecture.The house with the colorful fassade is situated at the end of Gumpendorferstraße / Gürtel. It shows great mosaiques and painted tyles designed by Arik Brauer, one of the famous Viennese painters of the school of the so-called "Phantastic Realism "
You may recognize paintings by Arik Brauer easily by his own special style and in my opinion his architecture is better that Hundertwasser's - but that is my personal opinion and most tourists in Vienna will never see this building.

Arik Brauer is also a great and popular singer and one of his daughters once participated in the European song contest...
Arik-Brauer-Haus is a private appartement-house and may be seen only from outside.

Address: end of Gumpendorfer Straße at Guertel
Directions: Arik-Brauerhaus is just 300 meters off the " Gürtel " get by U6 to station " Gumpendorfer Straße " and walk 300 meters to the east !

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
