Old emperor's stables changed into art centre. Amazing. Art, rest and leasure. After visiting one of exiting museums you can have a luck in one of a number restaurants, go to one of the shops and take a nap in open air.

This is a great place just to relax, people watch and grab a bite to eat, its an oasis of a place with an open space surrounded by various museums and buildings.

I strongly recommend Vienna and its museums who likes history, nature and art. This area is very close toStephenplatz and the palace so you can easily find it. You may spend some time in and out of the MuseumsQuartier and ahve fun and rest.

I am sure that in this area there are some of the finest museums in Europe. To choose between the nature museum, the art museum, the history, etc. is a great opportunity and the museums are very well made. take your time for it because you will need time to see them all.

It does what it says on the tin ie it's the central part of museum district where you get chance to visit a range of museums before or after which you can rest on a series of big blue things where you can legitimately have a bit of a lie down and a kip as needs be !!

Artsy, hipster space just outside the ring road. A nice place to have a coffee or a pint; but the museums found here are a bit too expensive. There were some very thought-provoking pieces on display in the free-areas that were closer to the street. There's a Vienna bicycle station here that has a lot of bikes and spots to... More

We didn't do any of the museums but stopped by to take pictures of the Maria Theresa sculpture and some fountains. We also saw many locals just hanging out at the coffee shops and grassy area. It is close to the Hofburg palace right in historic old town so it is easy to access and definitely a must do while... More

A hunk of amazing museums all very nearby each other. Easily accessible and the art on show is truly stupendous. Each well presented and staff are knowledgable and mostly kindly. A great and splendid presentation of Vienna and its importance in European culture.

One of my favorite places in the beautiful city of Vienna. Just a skip and a jump from the Kunsthistoriche Museum, the most prominent of the many great museums in Vienna, the Quartier houses several museums, eateries and small shops. In the warm weather especially it is a great place to hang with friends while lounging on outdoor chair/benches/lounging chairs.... More

In the backyard of the museums of modern art you can find the best area for going out! Especially in summer it is very popular among the hip crowd in town. All is great - from the cool bars and restaurants to one of the best music and fashion events in town

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.
