A big draw in Vienna
Make sure to visit the Albertina which has the largest print collection in the world. In the Belvedere Palace you can view works from the major artists from the 'Jugendstil' period. If you talk about art and culture you shouldn't forget the Museumsquartier where the Museum of modern art is housed. Across the boulevard, you can visit both the Natural History Museum and the Art History Museum. The Natural History Museum offers numerous highlights including the 25,000 year old Venus von Willendorf. The Art History Museum draws more than 1.3 million visitors per year and is by far the most visited museum in Austria. The most popular exhibit is the Saliera from Cellini, a highly coveted piece stolen in 2003 (in 2006 it was returned).
