Vienna is a powerhouse of art filled with museums and exhibitions. Since numerous museums are located just in the heart of Vienna’s first district, we often forget about the extraordinary places that are located in other districts, such as in the Vienna’s 14th district.
Between 1886 and 1888, the famous Jugenstil (art nouveau) architect Otto Wagner built the opulent summer villa surrounded by nature for himself and his family. This outstanding villa is located in Hütteldorf on the border of the historical “Wiener Wald”, which today is open to the public as a museum.
A visit to Casa del Alabado Museum of Pre-Columbian Art, is a must for history and anthropology fans. Located in a wonderfully preserve building, this museum features sculpture, artefacts, jewellery pieces and more. I learned about Ecuador’s indigenous cultures and saw hundreds of archaeological objects belonging to the ancient societies that occupied the territory known today as Ecuador.
