The Secession building, built by Joseph Maria Olbrich in 1898 as the home of the Secession movement. The Secession sought to regenerate the art movement in Vienna, promoting 'art for art's sake'. Klimt and Moser were key member. Saw lots of their work in the excellent Leopold gallery in the MuseumQuartier.
Our hotel in Vienna, the 'Twenty Five Hours Hotel Wien'. Not the concrete bit, just the glass on top and down the side. Lovely suites, excellent staff and great views of the city from our room and also from the bar on the top floor.
