Due to the legal requirements to contain the coronavirus pandemic, Kunsthalle Wien had to close from March until May, in November 2020, and from the end of December 2020 until the beginning of February 2021.

Of course we would like to compensate the lost time for all annual ticket holders: the validity period of all current annual tickets will be automatically extended by the respective duration of the lockdowns.

Guided tours

Our art educators introduce you to the works on view in our exhibitions and acquaint you with the exhibited artists and contemporary art at large. All guided tours may be customised to your needs and learning levels.

Public guided tours and art education formats within the framework of each exhibition are free with admission. Ranging from discursive overviews, topic-oriented tours, and curator-guided tours, to the “My View” tour series (where experts, amateurs and people of interest are invited to present their perspectives on the exhibition), the guided tour programs provide a host of possibilities for accessing and discussing the exhibition. Combined tours are also available with on-going collaborations with partner institutions such as the Kunsthistorisches Museum (KHM) or the Architekturzentrum Wien (AzW).

Organized tours for schools and university groups are free.

Guided Tours for Groups

For individual groups or corporate events, we offer tours available when booked in advance. The tours can be customised to particular interests. Tours usually take 60 minutes, with the option to include a drinks reception. Tours are available in German, English, Italian, French, and Austrian Sign Language.

Tourcost: € 50

Maximum group size: 25 people

We are happy to help you plan and prepare your visit. If you have any questions, please contact us via phone or e-mail, or schedule a personal appointment.

Online Kids' Workshops



We create community: The Kunsthalle Wien Online Art Talks

A changing world requires new forms of communication and togetherness. For this reason, we decided to our launch online art talks for groups on current exhibitions. We believe that discussions and exchange about contemporary art can provide a lot of strength for our “new” everyday life – and help us to better understand the world we live in today.

On the basis of select artistic positions – from videos to exhibition views of the works – we will discuss with you how society can be conceived anew and what it really takes to have a “good life.” The talks are centered around works by artists of different generations and ethnic backgrounds, which reveal new perspectives and help us to discover new modes of action in the present situation.

All you need for the art talk is a laptop, a computer, or a smartphone with a camera and audio function along with Internet access and the free video conferencing app Zoom.

Students, school classes, and other groups of max 14 persons are welcome to join!

The art talks are free of charge, tailored to the needs of the interested participants, and can be booked in German and English. For dates and more information about the procedure, please write to:


One of our goals is to give teachers a deeper understanding of Kunsthalle Wien, its exhibitions, and contemporary art in general. We guide you through the exhibitions in regularly scheduled information events, and give insight into our work and our art education program. We also provide you with teaching material for the individual exhibitions on demand or via our newsletter.
