The artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser was very busy in many areas. In architecture he was considered as a rebel. His vision was the free architecture for all, without standards, specifications and straight lines. Everyone should have the opportunity to create a small paradise on earth. He has realized this vision through his contribution in the design of various buildings. One of his first and most important projects was the apartment house, which was built on the behalf of the City of Vienna on the corner of Löwengasse and Kegelgasse. If you are a fan of exceptional architecture and if you like buildings in the style of Antoni Gaudi, you should not miss this highlight in Vienna with the German name Hundertwasserhaus.
Unfortunately, the Hundertwasser House is not located close to a metro station. To reach the nearest metro station Landstraße Wien Mitte you have to walk about 900 m. If you prefer to avoid this walk, you should ride with the metro U1 or U4 to the station Schwedenplatz. Change there to the tram line 1 towards Prater Hauptallee. The tram line 1 stops approx. 100 m in front of the Hundertwasser House at the station Hetzgasse. From there you just have to go approx. 100 m into driving direction along the Löwengasse to the corner Kegelgasse and then you have arrived.
The Hundertwasser House in Vienna is an unique apartment house and one of the first buildings where Hundertwasser was involved in the design. The building is located at the address Kegelgasse 34-38, 1030 Wien and can be seen only from the outside. In this area the alley Kegelgasse is a small pedestrian zone with benches and a fountain, perfect to admire the building from nearby and to take some pictures. If you would like to see a different view of the Hundertwasser House just change to the opposite street side of the Löwengasse. From there, you have a good view at the second building front.
The Info-Shop in the Kegelgasse is a small area directly inside of the Hundertwasser House which is open to the public. There you will find beside postcards, posters and souvenirs also some information material about Hundertwasser. While you explore the shop you are also able to see a short film about the house which is shown there in a continuous loop.
The Hundertwasser Village is located in the Kegelgasse directly across the apartment house. The building with a whole forest on the roof was also designed by Hundertwasser and was built because of the high visitor rush to the apartment house. The village is a small shopping center with a few souvenir shops, a cafe with a bar and some toilets in an interesting design. Fine for a break during sightseeing.
The Hundertwasser Museum in the Kunst Haus Wien is only 400 m away from the Hundertwasser House and is easy reachable by a short walk. The address is: Untere Weißgerberstraße 13, 1030 Wien. The building of the Kunsthaus Wien was once the location of the well known furniture manufacturer Thonet. Hundertwasser made the design for the conversion to today's appearance. The Hundertwasser Museum is recommendable for all who would like to learn more about this extraordinary artist and like to admire some more artworks from him. The admission to the museum costs approx. 11 Euro. Even if you do not visit the museum you have the opportunity to see a bit of the interior design. During the opening times you can simply take a look into the shop area, or relax in the bistro with an remarkable design.
