MuseumsQuartier (The “MQ”)

The Fulbright Offices are housed in one wing of the enormous “MuseumsQuartier.” The MQ was created 10 years ago at the site of the old Habsburg royal stables (there are still horse sculptures over some of the arches), and now houses the museum of modern art, the Leopold Museum, the TanzQuartier, and other arts venues, and many arts and nonprofit organizations. The plaza became an unexpected success as the hip place for hanging out (“Bummeln”) around the oversized Lego-like plastic lounging benches (in this photo in blue), lingering over coffee – or in fall, enjoying a small stein of Sturm – a deceptively innocent-seeming half-fermented white wine from the local area.
