The Kunstmeile Krems with the flagship Kunsthalle Krems and Krems Cartoon Museum also shows class exhibitions in 2015.

The Karikaturmuseum Krems, built by Gustav Peichl – aka IRONIMUS- is the only one of its kind in Austria, true to the motto “laughter is healthy.” By addressing current trends and the presentation of contemporary illustrators and cartoonists the museum is a living place of cultural discourse, including the “living room” of the Austrian star cartoonist Manfred Deix.

Tip: You can rent paintings for 9 Euro per month at the Artothek.
