The Emperor Franz Joseph built the Kunsthistorisches Museum to house the imperial collections. Its breath-taking treasures make it one of the most important museums in the world. Unique masterpieces by Rubens, Rembrandt, Raphael, Vermeer, Velazquez, Titian and Durer, as well as the world’s largest collection of works by Pieter Bruegel the elder, make a visit to the Kunsthistorisches Museum an unforgettable experience. Equally enjoyable for every art-lover is the magnificent building itself with its imposing staircase featuring a series of paintings on which Gustav Klimt collaborated.
