Quartier21


Digital culture, fashion, and design

quartier21 is a support structure that offers space and support to more than forty small and medium-sized autonomous cultural initiatives within the MQ Wien. It is an integral part of the overall concept of the MuseumsQuartier, which is based on variety and a broad understanding of culture.
The various groups represented here have transformed the quartier21 into Vienna's center for contemporary "applied art." The emphasis is on digital culture, design, and fashion. Art magazines and publishers have their editorial offices here, media art groups, associations, and project series their presentation venues, pop music, VJ, and video archives their home base. In addition, quartier21 features a TV station, a club radio station, a design forum, a museum/shop for computer games, a café, a cultural bookstore, fashion studios, and artist studios and guest rooms.

Approaching Vienna II







Vienna International Airport



Through Vienna in a horse-drawn carriage
They are just as much a part of Vienna as St. Stephen’s Cathedral and the Giant Ferris Wheel: The Fiakers. For many tourists, a ride with the two-horse carriage is one of the highlights. There is almost no cozier way to explore Vienna’s attractions.

The term "fiaker" originates from the French and refers to the hackney carriage stand in the Parisian Rue de Saint Fiacre. In 1720, the carriages - which had previously been referred to as "Janschky" coaches in Vienna - were renamed "fiakers" (and numbered).
