New Year’s Day we designated for Museumsquartier (the museum quarter) because Vienna has so many amazing museums. Wikipedia puts it into numbers: “The Museumsquartier is a 60,000 m² large area in the 7th district of the city of Vienna, Austria; it is the eighth largest cultural area in the world.” Hence why Ashton wanted to make a day of it.
We explored the main, old-school art history museum (Kunsthistorisches Museum) and saw lots of classical sculpture. The Leopold Museum, also part of Museumsquartier, was very cool and we stopped for coffee in Cafe Leopold. After more art, we needed a real meal and hunted and hunted around the museum quarter until we found Halle Restaurant and Cafe where we put up our feet and pulled out our notebooks to reflect on all the art we had just seen.
