Otto Wagner, Gustav Klimt and Vienna around 1900 with private guide

This tour shows you how the new style of Art Nouveau changed the city of Vienna around 1900. You learn what objectives the artists followed and what their motivation was. Especially Otto Wagner and Gustav Klimt created jewels of Art Nouveau, be it buildings or paintings. During the tour you will get acquainted with subway pavillons and apartment houses built by Otto Wagner and with masterpieces created by Gustav Klimt like the "Beethoven Freeze" at the Secession building and the famous "Kiss" at the Upper Belvedere Palace.


By subway we will reach Wienzeile to see the famous Otto Wagner houses at Kettenbrückengasse aside the Vienna Naschmarkt. After a 2nd short subway ride a museum tour at the Secession will follow and after a short tram ride you will visit the Upper Belvedere Palace.

A Recent Review of this tour

All the highlights as advertised by a most knowledgeable guide. I came to Vienna to see Klimt paintings and Otto Wagner buildings and drawings. Katharina escorted us elegantly thru the main sites, especially the Belvedere and let us know of others - the Wien Museum Wagner exhibit - that we could explore on our own.
