Vienna’s Art History Museum is worth a visit because of the imperial family’s collections. In short, it houses the most extensive Brügel collection in the world and masterworks by Raphael, Rembrandt and Tintoretto among many others. Consequently, choose an elegant summer outfit with classic lines that matches the magnificent architecture. Add a touch of nowness with platform sandals and a statement pearl necklace with oversized link chain.
One of the biggest cultural quarters in the world, the MuseumsQuartier is a meeting point for the young and trendy. The stylish crowd goes not only to the museums but also the cool cafés, shops and several cultural initiatives. As a result, mini dresses paired with platform sneakers or a jumpsuit and sustainable sneakers are ideal for enjoying sunny afternoons sipping drinks on the design lounge chairs.
The enormous former royal palace of Bavaria’s monarchs, the Munich Residence, displays impressive treasures. You’ll see a prayer book from 860 and a reliquary of the True Cross among the vast collections of art. Wear a classic look with a contemporary feel like a leather pencil skirt or floral pants paired with a crisp white shirt. And since you’ll want to visit the stunning gardens too, flat shoes are obligatory.
The exhibition Thierry Mugler Couturissime has just opened at the Kunsthalle München. The multimedia spectacle will delight fashion enthusiasts eager to look at the life-work of the couture designer. In homage to the fashion revolutionary, wear a Thierry Mugler shirt with theatrical sleeves, a blazer and earrings created by the designer. And leave a whiff of perfume by, you guessed it, Thierry Mugler.
If you suffer from Ostalgia, Berlin’s DDR Museum is the place for you. The super interactive museum takes you straight back to former East Germany. You’ll experience first-hand its iconic fashion any hipster would die for, and that will give you great summer outfit ideas. Wear, of course, vintage-inspired clothes and hiking sandals.
The 17th century Baroque Palace asks for a chic outfit. But remember to wear comfortable shoes. You’ll walk a lot to visit the beautiful gardens and the opulent Rococo state apartments of the Palais Charlottenburg. Not to mention the many rooms of the palace containing Crown jewels, porcelain and silver tableware.
