The MuseumsQuartier Wien is one of the ten largest cultural complexes in the world. But above all, it is a forward-looking, inner-city cultural district that will have an enormous impact on future trends. The MuseumsQuartier unites baroque buildings, new architecture, cultural institutions of all sizes, various disciplines of art, and recreational facilities in a single spectacular location.
The exceptional location in the heart of the city also offers all the advantages of an inner city cultural district. Terrace cafés, oases of green, bars, shops, and bookstores provide for a well-balanced infrastructure in the 60,000 square meter complex in the middle of an extraordinary setting.

Glacis Beisl's walnut tree garden
7th District Vienna MuseumsQuartier
The restaurant "Glacis Beisl",
with its shady garden, hidden away
in the MuseumsQuarter's "Hof 5",
offers a "place in the countryside",
a cool respite from the summer heat
under tall leafy trees,
without having to leave the city.
Walking up the stairs
to the left of the MUMOK building,
(Museum of modern Art Ludwig Foundation Vienna)
past the elevator at the top of the stairs and through the underpassage, and down another flight of stairs, you'll see the huge blackboard with its menue to your left
and the entrance to your right.

While I was quite happy
about having lunch at Vienna's MuseumsQuartier,
I sure would have loved to visit Crane's Beach,
an hour north of Boston,

The Best Summer Days — Les meilleurs jours de l’été
Do I have to comment on that destination?
