Traditionally associated with operas, balls, secession architecture and imperial history, Vienna is also surprisingly rich in contemporary art galleries. When visiting the city, culture lovers will want to stroll through Vienna’s new artistic hotspot in Schleifmühlgasse, located in the emerging 4th district. The city is also known for its Imperial palaces, including Schönbrunn, the Habsburgs’ summer residence. In the Museums Quartier district, historic and contemporary buildings display works by Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt and other artists.
