The Japanese restaurant Dots is located at Mariahilferstraße. It looks rather unspectacular from the outside, but you are convinced otherwise once you enter the restaurant. A modern and elegant atmosphere as well as the white furniture create a special flair.

2012 will be dedicated to Gustav Klimt. Gustav Klimt was a painting genius and pioneer of the Modern era around 1900. Most of his life he lived in Vienna. Klimt revolutionized the art of painting and his works continue to fascinate to this day. His best known painting “The kiss” can now be seen at the Vienna Belvedere. In 2012 he would have celebrated his 150th birthday. Many museums in Vienna use this as an occasion and present special exhibitions.
Our special suggestion is the Klimt Villa in the 13th district of Vienna. Until his death he had his studio there.
Here is a list of all the exhibitions of next year!
