Grätzloase KUNST HAUS WIEN
KUNST HAUS WIEN was the first museum to be awarded the Austrian Ecolabel. Founder Friedensreich Hundertwasser was firmly convinced that the future of mankind is only possible in the long term in harmony with nature and lived and acted according to this credo. Following Hundertwasser's ideas, we as a Green Museum set impulses for species protection, biodiversity and sustainability.
The Grätzloase of KUNST HAUS WIEN is located at Untere Weißgerberstraße 10, opposite the museum entrance.
Green parklets are created by the initiative of committed people all over Vienna. The Parklets or Grätzloasen are green places of encounter, they are free from consumerism and do not pursue any commercial purposes. They contribute to a better climate in the city and provide food for bees and insects. The Grätzloasen are there for everyone, inviting people to linger and relax. As meeting places, they promote coexistence in the neighbourhood and provide a better microclimate through greening and shading.
The greened parklet of KUNST HAUS WIEN was created by designer Robert Rüf and is made of solid larch and maritime pine plywood. For the planting, we focused on edible, herbs and bee-friendly plants. For example, lavender, sage, Greek mountain tea, mint, parsley and spice tea can be found in our Grätzloase.
