Academy of Fine Arts Vienna

3 Schillerplatz, Vienna, 1010

Founded in 1692 by court painter Peter Strudl (who would later become Baron of Austria), the Academy of Fine Arts remains one of Vienna's most prestigious schools. Over 900 students attend the academy, where they are immersed in a variety of art disciplines in a research-oriented environment. The campus itself spans 33,500 square meters and comprises five buildings that include a museum, where Hieronymus Bosch's famous Last Judgment Triptych is on display. Among the facility's prominent features are top-of-the-line sound and video studios, plus the country's largest collection of drawings (at least 150,000 are catalogued in the academy's library).
