Vienna’s MuseumsQuartier numbers among the ten largest cultural parks in the world.
Nearly 300 years span the period from the construction of the Imperial City Stables at the beginning of the 18th century, their later adaptation as trade fair and exhibition grounds and the official grand opening
of the MuseumsQuartier in 2001
Today, baroque buildings and contemporary architecture
, cultural facilities in every shape and size representing a variety of art sectors merge and coalesce to form a scintillatingly contrasting whole.
At the heart of this highly charged architectural field is Vienna’s largest open-air ballroom: the vast inner courtyard
of the MuseumsQuartier
transmogrifies each summer into a culture oasis in a class of its own
Visitors and locals relax on weatherproof furniture, fondly dubbed the Enzis
and enjoy contemplative leisure stroll,
acommpanied by the endless stimulation of culture
