About this tour

The Leopold Collection is one of the most important collections of modern Austrian art in the world. The more than 5,000 exhibits were collected by Rudolf and his wife Elisabeth Leopold over a period of five decades. In 1994, the Collection was consolidated by Rudolf Leopold with the assistance of the Republic of Austria and the Austrian National Bank into the Leopold Museum Private Foundation – a non-profit private foundation. The Leopold Museum is one of the most visited museums in Vienna and a highlight for every visitor to the city.

The Leopold Museum is a unique and active museum awash with light in the heart of Vienna and the biggest cultural magnet in the Museumsquartier. Besides exciting special exhibitions, it not only houses the most substantial and most important collection of Egon Schiele worldwide but also masterpieces by Gustav Klimt beyond price, like his probably most important figurative painting Death and Life. In no other museum in Vienna one can get so close to the fabled Fin de siècle Vienna and witness the birth of modernity. The collection shows how the art of the Habsburg Empire changed from strict Historicism and lovely Mood Impressionism within a few years to the worldwide unique Wiener Moderne which encompasses Klimt and Schiele as well as Oskar Kokoschka, Richard Gerstl, Koloman Moser and many other artists who are all well represented with major works at the Leopold Museum.
