In Vienna, there are 26 markets. 21 of them take place daily from Monday to Saturday. The markets are open all year and are always an attraction with great flair and tradition.
The three most famous Viennese markets are:
the organic market on Freyung (1st district) with numerous organic treats, natural cosmetics, handicrafts and ceramics has a long tradition as a marketplace.
Volkertmarket (2nd district) is a kosher jewel. When the sun shines, the market gives the impression of a big garden.
Rochusmarkt (3rd district): is one of the most popular open-air markets in Vienna.
Schwendermarkt (15th district) is a long drawn-out market that was almost forgotten in recent years.
Kutschkermarkt (18th district): you can shop almost like in the country. This market and Yppenmarkt are the last two Viennese street markets.

It deals with his early works, his years of success, his dramatic strokes of fate and his love and muse Emilie Flöge. Mostly it will be underlined by excellent rock music.

Currently there are a lot of exhibitions to celebrate Gustav Klimt:
Leopold Museum: “Klimt: up close and personal”
Belvedere: Belvedere hosts the largest Klimt collection worldwide.
