"Akademie der bildenden Kunste - Gemäldegalerie" Akademie der Bildenden Kunste Gemalderie - Academy of Fine Arts Building Vienna Tip by yooperprof

  ars longa, vita breva

This is the small but choice Gallery of the Academy of Fine Arts, a collection just off the Ringstrasse and not far from the Kunsthistorische Museum. There are some fine paintings here: a touching Murillo, an early Rembrandt, several brilliant works by Rubens. But the "star" of the Akademie is the famous Last Judgement by Hieronymus Bosch, the only Bosch triptych outside of Spain. It makes the Fine Arts Academy a must for any art enthusiast. The Academy is still a functioning teaching school, so you can also see the latest contemporary art while you're here. (This is the art institute which rejected the young Adolf Hitler - twice.)

Address: Schillerplatz 3
Directions: The closest U-Bahn station is Museumsquartier. Open Tuesday to Sunday, 10 to 4.
