Don't rush your time here - you'd miss the best part - sit down, with the sun on your face, and soak up the atmosphere. This is undoubtedly the bohemian part of a fantastic city, with groups or individuals using the space to hangout, paint, or make films! It's a great place to take a book, or some food and... More

It's a bit overhyped and overpriced for the place. Take a stroll around to soak up the energy around, live performances, kids had good time running around. There's a nice restaurant inside.

We were told that this part of Vienna's centre is quite cheap, so we choose to pay a visit when the thirst was unbearable. The place is very very nice, with all kind of bars, which due to the warm weather, had their terraces open. We had a couple of local large beers (Zipfer) and the traditional spritzer. The whole...

Vienna Museum Quarter is unforgettable. You can spend a week exploring all the art venues. We concentrated on Modern Art and the best were the permanent collection of the Museum der Moderne. The special exhibition on extravagantly innovative art was a little bit like contemporary pop music: monochromatic, monologue of the artist with her own self, monodimensional. Yet it is... More

So many interesting exhibitions in one place, you can't choose, which is why I went to see all of them, love the small cafes and gift shops around, not to mention that there are so many young students hanging out in the are you immediately feel the vibe, must visit!

The museums quarter or MQ consists of several art museums, among the white cube of the Leopold and the black cube of the Ludwig, in between the Halle. Both cubes should have been standing a storey taller, but then the historic protection committee intervened (in this city, you can add another storey to your hotel and not bother, but not... More

We went to the museums and it was fascinating ! The entry fees were cheap and actually you need days to see all in details. We were with our children and I believe that it was very educational for all of us.

Totally amazing. Hard to believe that there is amazing stuff there from only a couple of years bc. Fantastic medieval stuff there from flags, swords, clothes, the list goes on and on. A real must see. If you are disabled there is a lift, but not on every floor. There a long winding staircases. There is seating for you to... More

This museum precinct is really dynamic, with lots of people using the courtyard area to meet up and several good options for eating and drinking. Of course there are the museums and galleries, but the space in which they are located is also just an enjoyable place to visit.
