Secession Building Karlsplatz

The Vienna Secession Building on the Karlsplatz was designed by Joseph Maria Olbrich and opened in 1898. It was built to provide exhibition space for artists who had 'seceded' or withdrawn from the official art academy. It is famous for its connections with Austrian painter Gustav Klimt, whose Beethoven frieze is on display here.


A remarkable building, heralding the advent of the modernist era, it still looks fresh and captivating even today. The dome of golden laurel leaves was soon nicknamed 'the golden cabbage' by the Viennese.
