Uncover the artistic treasures of the Vienna Secession Movement as you study the city's role in a historic break from traditional styles. Examine the buildings, sculptures, and paintings of some of the most prominent figures of the movement to understand more about this revolutionary time.

Your Vienna Secession tour begins—where else?—with Gustav Klimt. Learn how integral he was to the rise of modern art, as he and others like him grew disillusioned with classical styles like Historicism and subsequently developed a more modern approach.

Perhaps the best illustrations of art from that time are local buildings designed in the Jugendstil (Art Nouveau) mold. The Vienna Post Office building by Otto Wagner is widely considered to be one of his masterpieces. Admire its grand façade and magnificent decor. With your scholarly guide, discuss the significant role Vienna Secession artists played in the birth of modern art. Leave having gained a greater understanding of the historical role of these progressive individuals.
