Meeting Place MuseumsQuartier
The MQ offers an ambiance that fits the urban lifestyle of its visitors: retaining the old, experiencing the new – and enjoying both of them together. Following this principle, a colorful and varied scene developed amid the setting of eminent museums and collections:
After a visit to the Schiele collection, drop by Café Leopold. In Café Restaurant Halle, you can take a look at the furnishings of Vienna's trendy bar designers, Eichinger and Knechtl. The MQdaily invites you to drop by for a short break. The hustle and bustle on the large square can be best followed from here.
Design at the Bar
The Kaan café-restaurant near the Architecture Center, designed by architects Anne Lacaton and Jean-Philippe Vassal, is well worth a visit. At Kantine, right next to a bookshop, visitors can leisurely enjoy the reading matter purchased next door.
