  • This place will always be one of my all-time favorites. Whenever I go there, I feel energized, cosmopolitan and historically enlightened. There are a bunch of museums, from classic paintings to modern sculptures and countless of restaurants and bars. It never gets boring. People from all over the world make this place one of the most crowded in Vienna.
  • Past the history museums on Maria-Theresein-Platz, across the border of the old city is one of the largest cultural district in the world: the MuseumQuartier. A fusion of old architecture and post-modern design house a collection of museums and art institutions anchored by the Leopold Museum and the mumok. This district isn't just about art nor architecture but a space in the city that I felt exudes a very energetic gathering of people. There were restaurants and bars that come alive in the evening amidst the art institutions. Public performances at times filled the air. Young people come together to gather by the fountain or lounging by contemporary furniture that acts as a public modern art installation. Explore the museums during the day, and stay till the sun sets. I just love the energy here.
  • Fave place in town for artists, tourist and groups of friends. Magical at summer nights. Can expect sudden party events and short term markets openings.
  • Great museums, bookshop for art, architecture and photography and a good restaurant. Kids museum is fun and they have all kinds of open air fun installations for kids (like jumping trampoline or remote control boats).
  • In my experience MQ is a place where lot of people like to gather, however there is not a big selection of nice "sit-in" cafés or bars. The ones available are always full. Would be also nice to have an outdoor café here in the summer and more greens planted or in pots.
