Museumkwartier (MuseumsQuartier)

Gelegen vlak bij de beroemde Ringstrasse, ten zuiden van het Maria Theresa-plein, behoort het Museumkwartier van Wenen (MuseumsQuartier) tot 's werelds grootste culturele complexen met meer dan 70 faciliteiten. Opvallende hoogtepunten zijn onder meer het Leopold Museum met een omvangrijke collectie Oostenrijkse kunst, waaronder 's werelds grootste selectie werken van Egon Schiele; het Museum voor Moderne Kunst (MUMOK), het grootste museum van Midden-Europa in zijn soort; en de Kunsthalle Wien, waar internationale hedendaagse fotografie, video en film het merendeel van de tentoonstellingen vormen. De Weense Danswijk, het Weense Architectuurcentrum, het Tabaksmuseum en het ZOOM Kindermuseum noemen het gebied ook de thuisbasis.

Het enorme Museumkwartier, voltooid in 2001, beslaat 60.000 vierkante meter (645.000 vierkante voet) en neemt de plaats van de voormalige keizerlijke stallen over en omvat een aantal cafés, bars, restaurants, winkels en openbare ruimtes, naast de vele musea en kunstinstellingen . Een wonder van moderne stadsplanning, waarbij barokke en modernistische architectuur moeiteloos worden gecombineerd, de enorme herontwikkeling kostte $ 165 miljoen (€ 145 miljoen) om te voltooien.
