The Essl Museum is home to the 7.000 works of the Essl collection and holds an exhibition space of 3.200 sqm. It is one of the most significant private museums for contemporary art worldwide.

In the lofty, bright space of the interior, a counterpart to the cool exterior, the visitor experiences contemporary art as interplay between art, light, space and movement. The spacy green of the surrounding area and the large panorama windows allow various perspectives of the floodplain forest of the Danube with the Essl Museum at the intersection of nature and culture.
