Austria // Vienna //

The MuseumsQuartier

Just to the southwest of the Ring is Vienna’s MuseumsQuartier, a collection of museums and galleries in the old imperial stables, a mixture of the original buildings with a couple of striking contemporary additions, with stylish outdoor seating, plenty of good cafés and an interesting calendar of events, that make the area a focus for Vienna’s cultural life. The best museum here is the Leopold Museum, with fine work by Klimt and the largest collection in the world of works by Egon Schiele.
