The MuseumsQuartier is back!

Of course, the MuseumsQuartier is in every tourist guide. But the Viennese like the former imperial court stables as well, where they meet up in summer to chat, hang out, drink beer, and play boules. The MuseumsQuartier has turned into the open-air living room of the city. Lounging on the famous MQ furniture – which comes in a different color every year – and just looking skywards. This is called relaxing the Viennese way.

Vienna's MuseumsQuartier (MQ) is one of the biggest cultural areas in the world. The mix of large museums, small cultural initiatives and trendy bars and restaurants is a success story. After visiting a museum, you can find yourself a cozy spot in the convivial dining garden or on the stylish MQ furniture in the courtyard of the MuseumsQuartier, or play a round of boules or mini-golf. New for this year is an ice cream booth operated by Veganista (daily from 2.00 pm to 8.00 pm).

The bars and restaurants in the MQ are opening again on May 15, as are the boules court and the popular mini-golf sculpture park MQ Amore. On the square in front of the MQ, artists have created twelve sculptures in the form of mini-golf courses. Open until October, Mo-Fr 12.00 noon - 10.00 pm, Sa-Su & hols. 10.00 am - 10.00 pm

Looking at art

The museums in the MQ are also opening one by one. The Leopold Museum opens on May 27, followed by the Kunsthalle Wien and the Austrian Architecture Museum on May 29. The last to open is the mumok – Museum of Modern Art Ludwig Foundation Vienna on June 17.

Another tip is the exhibition "Approximation by Bilderbuch" (until August 20) in Frei_raum Q21. The exhibition is an approximation of the hit Austrian band Bilderbuch and its music. Numerous exhibits were created in cooperation with artists, from photographs to stage sets, from album covers to objects of pop culture.
