This remarkable building was conceived as a deliberate opposition to the predominant artistic nostalgia of the early 20th century, and most of Vienna ridiculed its crowning gold sphere as a goldenes Krauthappel or 'golden cabbage' when it was unveiled in 1898. Today, the vegetable-ism has become something of an endearment with the building featured on the back of Austrian-minted €0,50 coins, and the building has functioned as a forum for modern Austrian artists for more than 100 years. The main attraction is undoubtedly Gustav Klimt's Beethoven Frieze, but the higher ticket price will also snag you entry to the other exhibitions.

Outside of the building is nice, inside you can find "permanent" exhibit of Klimt paintings on the fits the room but that is it.
