Where to stay in Neubau

The Neubau neighborhood is a vibrant, fashionable district considered as the gateway to Vienna's famed MuseumsQuartier. This complex of contemporary museums large and small showcases some of the city's finest modern art, including large collections of Schiele and Klimt. But it is also a gateway to a good time. The high number of restaurants, bars, and cafes in Neubau, serving a large student and expat community, make for an energetic buzz on its streets during both daylight hours and the evening.

Hotels in Neubau

Top-quality accommodation is the rule here, but the hotels in Neubau closest to the historic Innere Stadt (City Center) are the most luxurious and impressive. At the pinnacle is the Sans Souci Vienna, a 5-star hotel housed in a grand 19th-century building next door to the MuseumsQuartier. Elegant on the outside and stunning in the inside, this highly praised hotel comes with a full-service spa, indoor pool, and an unequaled location. The K&K Hotel Maria Theresia lies on the other side of the MuseumsQuartier, in the fashionable Spittelberg area. It also receives great Neubau hotel reviews for its contemporary styling, good-sized rooms, and fantastic breakfasts.

Things to see in Neubau

The MuseumsQuartier, with its assortment of modern museums housed in the former Imperial stables, include some of Vienna's foremost artworks and artists. With a dozen museums here, there are plenty to choose from, but 3 that simply must be seen. The bold white cube of the Leopold Museum is the place to head for an education in the city's famed Vienna Succession movement. It has an extensive exhibition of works by Klimt, as well as the world's largest Egon Schiele collection. By contrast the gray hulk of the MUMOK (Museum of Modern Art) takes an international focus, with works by a range of top 20th-century artists. Among its 9,000 paintings, sculptures and films you can check out works by Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, and Yoko Ono. The last of the big three, the Kunsthalle Wien, looks to the future rather than the past, with an exciting set of ever-changing contemporary pieces hidden behind its neoclassical facade.

Good for lovers of the arts

With the heavyweight attractions of the MuseumsQuartier, many of those staying at the luxury hotels in Neubau are here to enjoy the feast of arts on display. But that's not the only reason this is a great district for art-lovers. The Spittelberg area close to the “MQ” is a creative hub, crammed with art shops, galleries, and boutique design stores. The cafes and bars lining the cobbled alleys of this “Village in a City” thrum with artistic clientele, who the locals call “Vienna's bobos”—its bohemian bourgeois. And if you tire of the art crowd, the history of the Innere Stadt, or the shopping delights of Mariahilf lie just around the corner.

How to get to Neubau

For those arriving at Vienna International Airport, the high-speed ICE train service is the simplest and fastest way to begin your travel to Neubau. You'll need to change at the Wien Meidling station for the EC service, getting off at Wien Westbahnhof, which lies on the western edge of the district. Hail a cab or take the metro to complete the journey to your Neubau hotel, which should take just over an hour in total. Most hotels are within walking distance of the MQ or the Innere Stadt, but the area is well served with metro stops too.
