  • Very nice and cozy, with food and entertainment options. Calm and practical, because it is at the doorstep of several great museums. For those who like art, and likes to mix it up, this is a point to visit.

  • There is a music box which plays classic music in its own order. You can visit a bunch of museums and exhibitions when it's a daylight. At night, you will be enjoying this place as it has a lot of small restaurants and lounge places across the square. Besides, it's opened 24/7. If you prefer to have some fun at night, you will find this place very useful, especially for outdoor relax. Most of places closed by 12 midnight in Vienna.
  • Take your pick from a number of museums here. We visited The Leopold Museum which is terrific for modern art. It was also lovely and cool on a very hot day! The outdoor space at the MQ has a lovely pool you can dip your toes in and was full of little kids paddling on the day we visited. Lots of places to eat and drink too so you could quite easily spend the whole day here.
  • What a great place. The vibe is amazing and you can feel the rich culture of the place surrounding it. Would visit again. Vienna is a place to be, big with a magnificent cultural and night life. I would go there anytime. The museums are very clean and well organized. The whole area is very informative.
  • It is a very nice place in Vienna, it has these seats where everyone can sit on and chill. You can visit different museums in this location. Good options for drinks but not for food. There is a very nice bookshop with a lot of options for architecture and arts. Easy to reach but can get busy on weekends or at night.
  • A modern museum pole just across the street from the classic ones. Beautifully conceived and managed with many shared spaces. I attended an exhibition named Wow of the Heidi Horten collection at the Leopold art. Simply astonishing. But also the other exhibitions on display were really enjoyable like the one of Egon Schiele. Unique
