Kunsthistorisches Museum Wien Highlight Tour – Small Group Tour

Duration:   02h 15 min

Overview

Vienna’s world-famous Kunsthistorisches Museum is an architectural marvel and is a must-see for any art lover visiting Vienna. The museum developed from the art collections of the House of Habsburg and hosts a unique collection of some of the world’s most famous painters from Raphael and Rembrandt to Vermeer and Rubens and, of course, Peter Breughel the Elder.

Skip the line and join no more than 15 guests on a guided tour of two of the museum’s key exhibitions. From Peter Breughel’s “Tower of Babel” to Vermeer’s “The Art of Painting” you will become acquainted with the old masters at the museum’s Picture Gallery. You will also see some of the Museum’s rarest and oddest items at the Kunstkammer exhibit, like the golden “Saliera” by Celini and the “Madonna of Krumau”.

After the tour you are free to stay at the museum to explore the remaining exhibits, including those covering ancient Greek, Roman and Egyptian art.
