"Military History Museum - detail" Heeresgeschichtliches Museum Wien -Museum of Military History Tip by yooperprof

  a touch of Alhambra in Wien
by yooperprof
 
 

The architect for the Heeresgeschichtliches Museum was Theophil Hansen, a true master of historicist pastiche. Hansen's other commissions in 19th century Vienna include the neo-Byzantine Greek Church, the neo-Renaissance Borse, the neo-Classical Parlament, the neo-Italian Akademie der bildenden Künste, and the neo-Baroque Muisverien. You have to admire someone so comfortable working in so many different styles!
