Neidhart Frescoes

A Most Remarkable Discovery

Come see a phenomenon that was discovered in 1979 during the remodeling of an unassuming apartment on Tuchlauben. It was then and there they made a remarkable discovery of wall paintings from a medieval ceremonial hall. These lively frescoes, known as the Neidhart Frescoes (Neidhart Fresken), illustrate some of the songs by the legendary minstrel Neidhart von Reuenthal (1180–1240), as well as life in the Middle Ages.

Thanks to efforts by the Historical Museum of the City of Vienna, these works of art were made available to the public in 1982. They are the oldest secular wall paintings in Vienna and remain in excellent condition.
