The main monuments of this part of the visit are: the Secession Building and Naschmarkt.

In the afternoon we went towards Karlplatz and, after admiring the bronze monument of the triumvir Mark Antony, we reached the Secession Building that takes its name from the Austrian Artists Association which belonged to the movement of the “Vienna Secession”.

Our attention was immediately attracted by the golden dome, work of Klimt. Just below there is the famous motto”To every age its art, to every art its freedom” .

Inside, in a basement room, it is displayed the “Beethoven Frieze” (Beethovenfries), paintedby Klimt. The frieze was almost destroyed during the Second World War and now we can see only the parts that were saved.

In the same street, there is the Naschmarkt, the busiest market in Vienna. At the entrance there are  many restaurants, then fruit and vegetablesstalls follow.
