The open area here has a nice atmosphere. It's quite lovely that the art galleries/museums are all very close to to each other and restaurants/places providing snacks inside are available too.

Something for everyone. It's got several museums including one especially for kids, the Kinder Zoom museum. Loads of museums and cafes for adults too as well as a small but nice gift shop. Do your research before you go to get the most out of it.

Very nice place full of life and art. Offers several museums and galleries to visit along with passive art installations all over the place which serve as benches or other facilities. Especially fun to visit during the night of museums!

One of the top places to visit in Vienna. There are a couple of Museums that everyone in Vienna should visit. For sure the transportation infrastructure is perfect like in all Vienna. I would really recommend to everyone that is visiting Vienna. Everyone should go to Museums Quartier.

Historic Site of the week

Kerameikos

Kerameikos was the potters" quarter of the city, from which the English word 'ceramic' is derived, and was also the site of an important cemetery and numerous funerary sculptures erected along the road out of the city towards Eleusis.

The earliest tombs at the Kerameikos date from the Early Bronze Age (2700-2000 BC), and the cemetery appears to have continuously expanded from the sub-Mycenaean period (1100-1000 BC). In the Geometric (1000-700 BC) and Archaic periods (700-480 BC) the number of tombs increased; they were arranged inside tumuli or marked by funerary monuments. The cemetery was used incessantly from the Hellenistic period until the Early Christian period (338 BC until approximately the sixth century AD).

The most important Athenian vases come from the tombs of the Kerameikos. Among them is the famous “Dipylon Oinochoe”, which bears the earliest inscription written in the Greek alphabet (second half of the eighth century BC). The site"s small museum houses the finds from the Kerameikos excavations.
