Summer is already just around the corner and with it, of course, a summer full of culture in Vienna! Today we’ll share which current exhibitions you shouldn’t miss at the mumok – Museum of Modern Art Ludwig Foundation Vienna.
The Art Nouveau architecture gave us some pretty amazing landmarks. You just gotta love it! Vienna Secession, as the movement was known in Vienna, left a huge impact on the city’s architecture as we know it today, and it wouldn’t be possible without Joseph Maria Olbrich and Josef Hoffmann — the architects who were there to establish the movement, and Otto Wagner, who joined a bit later. In this blog post, we will show you some of the best-known and most popular Viennese Art Nouveau buildings from all around the city.

So that you don’t feel overwhelmed by this vast offer, we have put together a guide on how to spend the perfect day at MQ Vienna. Enjoy!
This past Tuesday marked International Museum Day which took place under the motto “The Future of Museums: Recover and Reimagine.” Museums have had a hard time in the last year – a lot has changed which made the development of new concepts and approaches necessary. Due to the many closed days, the focus shifted to digital offers and reaching the public off the beaten track. This required new and perhaps unfamiliar approaches, which is why we launched the project “Digitalizing Culture.” We want to provide organizations and companies from the tourism, art, and culture sectors with urgently needed digital solutions, offer them an innovative platform, and support them in communicating with their target groups.
Street food is on everyone’s lips nowadays. It’s easy to access, convenient, usually available around the clock, and we are pretty sure some fast food takeaway dishes have been your savior after a night of partying.

Vienna’s sausage stands have been around for quite some time, so join us for a little journey into the history of these gems, the peculiar sausage stand language, as well as our personal recommendations for the best sausage stands in town!
