Künstlerhaus #2

The Künstlerhaus was designed by August Weber in the style of an Italian Renaissance villa and opened on 1 September 1868 as one of the earliest Ringstraße buildings. It was significantly expanded as early as 1882 with a pair of side wings - these were later used to house a cinema (from 1949) and a theatre (from 1974).
