We were interested in learning more about art and design in Vienna at the turn of the last century, and about the individuals involved in the Jugenstil movement. We enjoyed the opportunity to discuss many different facets of this period with our guide, Alexa. It was a pleasure to have someone so knowledgeable as a guide. Our one complaint, which is outside anything Context Travel has control over, is the quality of collection, display and signage at the Museum of Art and Design. Compared to the exhibition of objects from the same time period displayed at the Leopold Museum, the Museum of Art and Design's efforts were poor and underwhelming. While the museum had a prominent institutional role in the arts and design movement, we don't think it merits much time until/unless it greatly improves its collection and display.
Katharina was extremely knowlegeable, warm and helpful. She brought the Secessionist movement alive and her passion and appreciation for the subject was very apparent.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a great context to continue our understanding of this period. She was a delightful person to spend the morning with!
