Klimt Villa

Gustav Klimt used a villa in the 13th Viennese district as a studio from 1911 until his death in 1918. This has been revitalized and re-opens to the public again on 30 September 2012. Klimt used the garden house, which was originally built without a first floor, as a studio room and workshop during his final creative period. On the ground floor, the studio has been authentically reconstructed on the basis of contemporaneous descriptions and illustrations. The aim is to convey the atmosphere of his living and working environment and to make the contents tangible. This is done through the reconstruction of the furnishing of the "reception room" and the "studio" on the basis of photographs by Moritz Nähr and available original samples of objects (e.g. carpet). The other rooms of the studio provide information on models and "clients", who were of importance to Klimt's works from this creative period.

Hofmobiliendepot. Imperial Furniture Collection

The permanent collection at the Hofmobiliendepot. Imperial Furniture Collection has two rooms set aside for examples of Viennese Modernism. The period around 1900 represented a turning point in the history of design, with floral designs having set the tone for Art Nouveau shortly before the dawn of the 20th century. Several chairs by Joseph Maria Olbrich and a full set of apartment furnishings designed by Styrian architects Forabosco feature in this display. There are also various pieces by Otto Wagner, including items that the architect designed for the Austrian Post Savings Bank, as well as a desk and stool. Other highlights are a bentwood armchair by Joseph Hoffmann, who studied under Wagner, and furniture made by the Wiener Werkstätte for the Imperial State Printworks. The second section of the Viennese Modernism collection presents valuable pieces by Adolf Loos: An eight-legged elephant trunk table, a dining room set, and a chair from the legendary Café Museum, where Gustav Klimt and his contemporaries liked to congregate.

Madame Tussauds

Visitors to Madame Tussauds at the Prater have the chance to meet Gustav Klimt "in person" and can have their photograph taken alongside a waxwork of the painter. Madame Tussauds is famous for its wax figures of national and international celebrities and leading historical figures.
