The Museum Liaunig in Neuhaus is a museum dedicated to the art collection of Herbert W. Liaunig, and the building definitely stands out--both literally, as it overhangs a hill, and in its design.

The Museum Liaunig is a very long single-story design that doesn't look like much, but is so creative because it starts at street-level at the entrance, and tunnels underground until it re-emerges at the drop of the hill.

Implications - This architecture literally seems to leave viewers hanging and will certainly be worth talking about in the eyes of many people. Leave it to art museums to have the best architectural designs! The Museum Liaunig is undoubtedly a must see if you find yourself lucky enough to be in Neuhaus.
