It's an art gallery of sorts. There are 3 levels. I liked the 1 st floor. 2 nd floor had more abstract art. Since I was there had to finish all 3 levels. It's good but art isn't my thing. One can surely visit if interested in art

An amazing area in the city of Vienna! In this place you can find many different kinds of museums to go to at decent prices. The outside area between the museums is also very beautiful and it is nice just to walk around. There are a lot of Cafe places that you can sit at and chill and also free sitting areas which are really cool and stylish ;) On a sunny day you can go there with your laptop / book and spend your day in the fresh air instead of in an office.

A must - see if you're visiting Vienna city. Great art, especially the medieval. Wasn't a big fan of the contemporary. Nice cafés too.. you can spend a couple of good hours there. August and September are best time to visit.

A cool place with a lot to offer - art, of course, in its museums and galleries, but also various places to chill in its inner courtyards, during the day or evening. Drinks, food, networking.

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
