Overview

The Academy of Fine Arts building houses not just the academy itself, but also the Gallery of Paintings. This building, with its beautiful facade, was designed by Theophil Hansen between 1872 and 1876. Some remarkable pieces can be viewed in the collections of Dutch and Flemish painters of the 17th Century; Italian and German art from the 16th Century, which includes an altarpiece of the Last Judgment by Hieronymus Bosch; and paintings by Rubens, van Dyck, Murillo and Francesco Guardi. Works by professors of the academy are also on display. The students' canteen or the artists' material shop, both situated in the same building, are recommended. If you still haven't had enough art after all this, ask about further exhibitions in the new Academy House on Getreidemarkt/Karlsplatz.
