The Museum of Fine Arts, Kunsthistorisches built in 1891 near the Imperial Palace to house the extensive collections of the imperial family. With its vast array of eminent works and the largest Bruegel collection in the world, it is considered one of the most eminent museums in the world. Numerous major art works of European art history, among them Raphael’s "Madonna in the Meadow," Vermeer’s "The Allegory of Painting," the Infanta paintings by Velazquez, masterworks by Rubens, Rembrandt, Dürer, Titian and Tintoretto...
What a lovely day in a beautiful city and if you have money or the time left, pick up a piece of Reidel glass. This wine glass company is from Austria and has the most beautiful pieces...and definitely worth carrying home on the plane.
