Glimpses of Egon’s life on the Schiele Trail

 
Egon Schiele in Tulln

Egon Schiele in Tulln

The artist—as much admired as he was controversial—spent about a third of his short life there. Many Tulln paintings attest to how closely connected he was to his home town.

This special theme trail lets you revisit some of little Egon’s haunts in the town. It shows you places relating to his childhood in fin de siècle Austria. A town between the traditional and the modern. Let yourself get caught up in this atmosphere. And in the works in the Schiele Museum, which show what a great master Egon was even as a little boy.
