I spend many lunch times there just enjoying the sun. Usually there are people around, either for lunch or tourists for the many FREE events (check event calendre) and museums (free museums nights, google it). Also it is a good place to start a downtown tour due to the central location and metro stations.

This was a very trendy place and it has a lot of reasons to be. With an active cultural agenda this place has a very nice courtyard where people hang out.

Restaurants are very good with a good selection of cakes and coffee. Lots of people relaxing and socialzing in the courtyard, lying on some kind of plastic bed mouldings. Two museums to visit Leopold and Mumok.

The Leopold was excellent. The MUMOK is a beautiful building but there wasn't as much to see there. Having been to MOMA, Tate Modern, etc... in the past, I could have passed on this gallery.

With museums in every corner, it is hard not to love this quarter. If art or culture is not your thing or you simply are tired of both at the moment, then museum quarter is also a lovely place to visit just to sit down and observe the garden/park, the nature, and the people.

Fantastic art collection, wide range of Impressionist/Realist artists and interesting exhibition of art and drawings from WW1. Well worth visit and admission fee. Shop also pretty good, nice range of souvenirs.

The museum quarter is an area of Vienna with a high concentration of museums and galleries. The complex that includes the Modern Art Museum, Mumok has several free exhibitions, the quality of which I guess can be variable. I struck lucky with a fantastic sound and vision installation with electrical cables as a central theme. I was enthralled and regarded... More
