Vienna has built a museum quarter that is one of the ten largest cultural districts in the world. A decade in the construction, at a cost of two billion shillings, it is Austria's bid to outdo the giant art monoliths in the USA, with the distinct advantage of featuring beautiful old architecture.The MuseumsQuartier Wien houses 20 autonomous artistic institutions, ranging from a creativity centre for children to a classical art museum, from headquarters for dance, film, architecture and theatre to forums for new media and art theatre. A plethora of shops and restaurants surround the complex, which has also become the main venue for the Vienna Festival, the city's foremost annual eventWorld-class museums to be found in the area include the Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna's premier exhibition space for international contemporary and modern art; the Leopold Museum, important for modern Austrian art, including the Secession, Viennese Modernism and Expressionism, as well being home to the largest collection of work by Egon Schiele; and the Museum Moderner Kunst (MUMOK) (previously The Museum of Modern Art Ludwig Foundation Vienna (MMKSLW)), one of Europe's largest collections of modern and contemporary art.The area's architecture represents a fusion of the original 18th-century buildings with modern work. The former were renovated by Manfred Wehdorn, while a separate team, Laurid Ortner, were engaged for the latter. The aim is to provide physical and historic links between old and new, art and recreation, audience and architect. Vienna is one of the few European metropoli to have achieved harmony between ancient and modern in its cityscape.The MuseumsQuartier launches an extra summer programme for the young and trendy visitors between May and September.
The Vienna State Opera is one of the great opera houses of the world. With such famous names attached to its history as Gustav Mahler, Richard Strauss, Bruno Walter, Clemens Kraus and Karl Boehm, there can be little wonder that it is so revered. Since the war Karajan, Maazel, Abbado and, since 2002, Seiji Ozawa have all had periods (however turbulent) as music director.Boasting the longest continuous performing tradition in the German-speaking world, the Vienna State Opera (Staatsoper Wien) can trace its history back to the early years of the 18th century, under the patronage of Emperor Leopold I, who not only ruled for 47 years, but was also a composer.In 1858 a competition was held to design a new theatre close to the old one when the city was extended. The winners were Eduard van der Nüll and August Sicard von Sicardsburg, but such was the public debate and pressure over it that it led to the early deaths of both architects (one through suicide) before the official opening on 25 May 1869.The State Opera was a late victim of the bombing during the Second World War, on 12 March 1945. However, the complete façade of the building was carefully restored, and the opera house reopened on 5 November 1955.Of course, an Opera House is only as good as the music-making that graces its stage, and the Vienna State Opera has an enviable reputation, with what is in effect the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra in the pit for every performance (the Vienna Philharmonic is made up of players from the Vienna State Opera). The company's policy is to offer a varied repertoire, both ballet and opera "in rep" with short runs, including traditional performances on specific days, such as Wagner's Parsifal every Good Friday.When:DailyWhere:Vienna Staatsoper, Vienna, AustriaOpening Hours:Mon-Fri 9am-6pm; Sat & Sun 9am-12pm; first Sat of the month 9am-5pm (box office)

Schoenbrunn Palace (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) was built as a grand summer retreat in the style of Versailles for the Hapsburg rulers. A rococo giant of a palace, it boasts formal Baroque gardens, a palm house, a maze, a zoo and an Orangery that hosts evening concerts. Explore the park to find (fake) Roman ruins and the Gloriette Terrace, which has panoramic views over the Palace and Gardens.Meaning "beautiful spring", Schoenbrunn was built by Leopold I when the threat of Turkish invasion had receded following the siege of 1683. Redeveloped substantially by Empress Maria Theresia to accommodate her 16 children(!), she added another floor to two of the wings.It was also in Schoenbrunn that the Austro-Hungarian empire came to an end in November 1918 when Karl I signed away his power in the Blue Chinese Salon. During the Second World War, the palace was first the Russian HQ and then the British HQ before being signed back to the Austrians in 1947. The Imperial Tour of the palace interior takes you through 22 rooms, while the Grand Tour offers 40 rooms. Bring swimming things in summer for a dip in the adjacent Olympic-sized pool, the Schoenbrunner Bad. A magical experience also awaits the visitor at the Marionette Theatre in the stables.Two puppeteers, Mr and Mrs Hierzer, have trained for over ten years to perform Mozart's Magic Flute and other well-known operas and a changing programme of childrens' shows. In their skilled hands, the marionettes give passionate and moving performances, guaranteed to be appreciated by all ages. The theatre's website has all the performance details and times - they perform most days, so do check and book in advance during the busy summer months.When:DailyWhere:Schoenbrunn Palace, Vienna, AustriaCost:€2-€10, depending on which part is visitedOpening Hours:Park: 6am-dusk; Palace 9am-5pm (6pm in summer)
