The Klimt Villa

In the Vienna outskirts of Hietzing, in a quiet location between residential buildings, there is a villa designed mainly in the neo-baroque architectural style with a spacious garden. In this location Gustav Klimt worked on some of his most important works from 1911 until his death in 1918.

The Exhibition

Especially in Vienna, but also worldwide, Klimt seems omnipresent. His art has become common property. Everything that was lost in connection with his works and his life will be forgotten: looted art, art that has been returned, art that has disappeared and countless stories about collectors, perpetrators and victims.

The Klimt Villa Shop

We have not received any financial support from the public purse since we opened. If you would like to support us now in the Corona crisis, you can order hand-embroidered protective masks from Klimt’s great-granddaughter Brigitte Huber or unlimited admission tickets for the Klimt Villa in our shop.

The Klimt Sculpture

The sculpture by painter and sculptor Erwin Kastner was erected in 2022 on the south side of the Klimt Villa. The sculpture depicts a sketch of the master painter Gustav Klimt – as the sun moves around the building, his shadow is cast onto the façade of the Klimt Villa.

The "Klimt Villa-Rose"

Gustav Klimt was a garden enthusiast. At the heart of his garden, and much admired in his paintings, are the Damask roses planted in around 1900. The ‘Klimt Villa Rose’ has been cultivated by an expert Viennese horticulturalist by taking cuttings from two parent plants and grafting these onto wild roses. 22 rosebushes have already been planted as part of the partial reconstruction of the garden.

The Garden Café

On sunny days from May to September, visitors can take a seat in the shade of magnificent chestnut trees and linger over coffee and cake in the garden of the Klimt Villa. The Garten Café, which opened in 2021, operates during museum opening hours and can be combined with a visit to the gardens.
