Secession, Vienna Reviews
Go for the Beethoven Frieze in the basement. There are other changing exhibitions but the Klimt is the draw. Architecture was strongly influenced as well by this building with its simple lines and human focused sized spaces. In general a young art focused crowd. Good shop with high quality turn of the century design and few books for children in several western languages ..French and English were out of stock but go online. The gold dome is iconic and being released if you want to contribute online!
Beautiful gallery - almost as impressive on the outside! Worth a visit, even if you don't pay to enter. The impressive exterior is full of quirky details (look out for the three wise owls and the splendid guilded dome). Inside there is a permanent display of Klimt's Beethoven Frieze (1902) in the basement and ever-changing exhibits - all by 20th & 21st century artists on the three other floors. All the display areas are bright and airy. The highlight is undoubtedly the Klimt frieze, which warrants time spent to absorb the large-scale work - this is the only space in the gallery with seating. Depending on your taste, the changing exhibits may or may not represent good value - entrance is €9.50 per adult, which is quite pricey just to see the Klimt!
A nice architectural building from the turn of the 20th century. Here you pay entrance to enter and view a single masterpiece, Klimt's Beethoven frieze. It is the only artwork in the permanent exhibit here. While it is remarkable, it is a lot to pay for one major viewing and whatever temporary exhibition that might be taking place at the time of your visit. 10-15 minutes in the Secession building is all that is required. Bare this in mind before committing to going inside. Aside from the Beethoven frieze and maybe the glass roof in the exhibition hall which curiously casts an even light, most of the Secession Building's major features are on the outside. Its exterior is such a departure from the usual architecture in Vienna which makes it quite a memorable building.
It's fine if you're a fan of contemporary conceptual art but unfortunately I wasn't impressed by the exhibits at all. I also expected to see more Klimt than the one frieze, though that admittedly was amazing.
Very magic place. Klimt's Beethoven fries are impressive. Nice side contemporary art exibition. Cool shop.
