Vienna: Leopold Museum Skip-the-Line Entry Ticket

1. Vienna: Leopold Museum Skip-the-Line Entry Ticket

Visit the magnificent Leopold Museum, a unique treasure trove of Viennese Art Nouveau, the Wiener Werkstätte, and Expressionism. Visit the Leopold Museum in MuseumsQuartier Vienna and experience the most important and largest Egon Schiele collection in the world as well as masterpieces by Secession founder Gustav Klimt. Admire the impressive artworks and embark on a journey to Fin De Siècle Vienna, when artists such as Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt, and Oskar Kokoschka turned the world upside down and broke away from old traditions. The new creative movement began with the Vienna Secession and presented itself in Art Nouveau. They gave the old Habsburg Empire a final flourish and made Vienna one of the hottest cultural centers of the time. The Leopold Museum also houses a variety of objects created by artists of the Wiener Werkstätte - from Josef Hoffmann to Kolo Moser - which are considered unique milestones in international design history. The modern architecture of the Leopold Museum, a light-flooded cube of white shell limestone whose color is reminiscent of the bright buildings on the Ringstrasse where you can still admire Art Nouveau, stands in strong contrast to the historic ambiance of the imperial stables. The light-flooded atrium not only offers views of and into the building itself, but also impressive and unexpected views of the city of Vienna. The museum's panoramic windows offer a wonderful view of Vienna's city center with Maria-Theresien-Platz and the Hofburg.

The Raxi (electric rickshaw) tour will show you exactly what you really want to see in Vienna almost as if you were walking and this without any effort. The route can be personalized based on your interests such as architecture or history, or as a tour guide i can suggest and design a route for you. I can pick you up from your hotel and drop you off at the place you want. Enjoy Vienna even in slightly colder temperatures with a heated blanket that can keep you warm for about 3 hours on a battery and an additional picnic blanket that is waterproof and also windproof. Raxi (my e-rickshaw) was specially designed in Holland (West Europe) for comfortable trips for two adults and was delivered on June 15th 2023, so it is really brand new and in very good condition. Raxi is equipped with shock absorbers, a beautiful orange canopy, and a retractable footplate (for easy entry/exit). The engine is under my seats so no engine heat is radiated to the guests. Two walking sticks or hiking sticks can also be conveniently transported on a special frame. If you have questions, please contact me by email (office@guide-nicole.com) or mobile to make your Vienna sightseeing dreams come true. The weather for Raxi rides: between +2°C (if the roads are not slippery) and 30°C, with a maximum wind of 50km/h. Rain protection for light rain or snow is available. If the weather makes a Raxi tour impossible, we can do almost the same tour using public transport. However, in this case we will also have to walk. Your pickup from your meeting point or hotel remains free. I will send you a message 48 hours in advance if the weather makes a trip with the RAXI impossible and only a tour by public transport is still possible so you can book my new Tour: "In Vienna like a Viennese: by public transport & walking" instead the Raxi tour.

Excellent complement for fans of Klimt and Schiele. Don't miss the Rodins. No need for wire cutting: there aren't that many people. Please note the entrance is IN the courtyard! Force to put the coats in the ground floor cloakroom, otherwise there are only lockers!

I was the only person to schedule a tour on that day so I got a private tour which was really nice! It was raining, and my tour guide got me an umbrella from the gift shop to borrow. I had an incredible time, and my tour guide gave me great recommendations!

Katarina did a great job of keeping our tour interesting, informative and engaging. Well worth the time and money.

Absolutely fantastic. Would certainly recommend. The guide was very friendly and informative. Thank you

short city tour with some sights, but very cool the 4 stations with VR glasses. Recommended!
