Great place for exibitions, in the center of the city, easy to find (Freyung), high quality exibitions, for art lovers, I have been there two times, the retrospective of Georgia O Keeffe and her White Flower is fascinating. Shown in Austria for the first time.

Bank Austria is a bank associated to the Italian banking and financial group UniCredit. It pays attention to cultural issues, and has allotted a permanent space at its headquarters in Vienna for carrying out cultural events. This space is called “Bank Austria Kunstforum”. The events mainly consist of temporary art exhibitions; they generally are of very high quality, so, when you are in Vienna, you are advised to keep an eye on what is going on there. Admission is always on payment. At the time of my visit there was a very good retrospective exhibition of Balthus paintings; many Tripadvisor’s reviewers have enthusiastically reported on it.

The only reason for visiting the Kunstforum is to attend the events organized at this venue. The location is very central (8, Freyung Street), midway between Stephansplatz and the Schottentor; it can be easily reached on foot from both places. The buses 1A and 2A stop at its doorstep. The surrounding area is extremely interesting from the architectural point of view, with baroque churches and palaces; there is an intense scent of “old Vienna”.

This a private venue owned by the Bank Austria. You may just miss it as you walk from the market on Am Hof to the Market on Freyung-where this exhibition hall is located.
(From there take a walk to the Burg theater and the Rathaus, stopping for coffee and cake at Lindtman coffee shop).
When we visited the place a retrospective of Balthus was presented. He was a very important one person movement of art. Suffice to say that Raine Maria Rilke was his mentor.
The list of lenders to the exhibition proves that this is a well known and respected venue so one can expect other important exhibitions there from time to time.
Before you arrive at Vienna make sure to check what's on show at the forum

We saw an interesting exhibit here when we passed by on a walk around the neighborhood. For a small entry fee you can attend a regular exhibition. Check it out. There's no permanent collection, so it's the luck of the draw when you stop in depending on the quality of the exhibition. We were lucky, and saw an exhibit of Russian avant-garde works.

We went already several times to exhibitions at the Bank Austria Kunstforum and found them to be mostly well conceived and high quality. There's no permanent exhibition, but rather always a specific artist or theme which is worked out into an exhibition for a few months.
The location -at Freyung - is easily accessible, from the subway line 3 station Herrengasse or Schottentor.
