The finest of Ruben's, set in wonderful galleries with sufficient seating to relax and just enjoy. Did not go to themodern art museum the other side of the gardens. I just got lost in the sheer quality of the art. But it is a great place. I think I paid 11 Euros to get in..but it is worth it.... There... More

The museum area is like an oasis in the city. there are green areas and spaces between the museums with coffee shops and benches where one can just spend an hour or two after visiting one of the museums.My son and I visited the Museum of Modern Art and enjoyed it very much. You can easily spend half a day... More

An extension of the ultra-exaggerated lifestyle witnessed at Schonbrunn Palace, common to European royalty during the last century, extrapolated via the apparent necessity for vast quantities of fabulously expensive household "necessities"...

Museums Quartier has been my favorite place in Vienna. The garden inside is a popular meeting spot for locals and a resting area for tourists. In addition to its large yard, the museums and design shops inside are great. If you like visiting museums you can definitely spend at least 2 days in the area. You can also enjoy bars... More

Beautiful square hosting wonderful art. It's the perfect way to spend a few hours during a rainy day. The buildings themselves are pieces of art. Well worth a visit.

A great collection of galleries, old and new, around a large courtyard with cafes. Separate tickets for the galleries - the Leopold is worth a visit for its collection of Schiele's work

Lovely areas just a short stroll from the Hofburg complex. Plenty to see or if you want to sit on the grass and take in the atmosphere then that is good too.

We visited the MQ for at least three times during our stay in Vienna last week. We went for both Leopold and MUMOK museums, as well as for the relaxing courtyard, and activities and installations. There was also a market along the facade of the building, selling handmade items. A must see. This place offers a lot :)

We visited both large museums and then went for a 30 min. horse carriage ride. The driver told us interesting things about the area and we enjoyed the peaceful ride. Nice area for a wide variety of things to do.

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
