Academy Gallery, Vienna

Private tour in the Galerie der Akademie, Wien

HUGE list of museums for digital visits via my photo files + Zoom.

Covid 19 / Corona times, plan B. Difficult to enter museums these days ! However, I can make an appointment with you to do a Zoom visit through my wonderful photo collection made inside this wonderful museum. I will be your live Guide during this private art class presentation.

In better days, post-Corona: Join me for a visit to the Art Academy Gallery, in Vienna (Wien). New: Private Audio system available. I will be your private traveling professore, travelling in from Amsterdam, Holland specially for you. Tour by Drs Kees Kaldenbach, a professional Art History scholar with excellent teaching skills. Specialist in Fine art and Design, Architecture and History. VIP entry. Entry best at from 9 or 10AM.

1. Expensive option: You can hire me and I will fly in to be your own outstanding private “Professore”. At your cost, I will fly in especially for you and I will guide you after spending a hotel night. And then a very memorable museum visit or two.

2. Less expensive option: I know many first-rate art historian colleagues all over Western Europe. Therefore I know just the company/guide to arrange an excellent museum visit for you. I work very closely with these art history women and men and they are brilliant.



The collection started in 1822 with a magnificent gift of Count Lamberg-Sprinzenstein, who donated his famous collection of over 800 paintings to the Imperial Art Academy in Vienna. It is still tied to the Art University programme. This collection was collected and intended as a study material for artists in training. It is therefore mostly quiet and calm inside so we can focus on the works of art without being hindered by crowds. Among the highlights are Jheronimus Bosch, Van Dijck, and many others like Dürer, Botticelli, Rembrandt, Rubens, Amerling, Klimt and Hundertwasser. The paintings include early Dutch masters, Flemish masters and Italian works of art.

Join me to the main Art History Museum in Vienna.


Vienna Vermeer. Just about the best there is.

Please note, this is a high level offer. Practicalities: I live in Amsterdam, Holland and do NOT run a travel agency.  I do however provide Fabulous international museum tours.

The plan is that you contract me for one or more days as your private ‘Professor’ and offer full transport to that city, plus hotel accommodation in the same place you will stay. We will spend quality time together in mornings and early afternoons.
