A head for heights.

Even if you have been up onto the roof of the NHM Vienna before, the feeling of stepping out into the fresh air and gazing down at the city below is always something special. High above Austria’s capital you can see many famous landmarks, from the Belvedere castle to the iconic Kahlenberg hill. Depending on the season and time of day, visitors can admire eye-catching cloud formations, romantic sunsets and leaves changing color on the trees.

The NHM Vienna offers guided tours of the museum’s roof every Wednesday at 18:30 (German) as well as every Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 15:00 (English) and 16:00 (German). (© NHM Wien, Kurt Kracher)
