MuseumQuartier, Vienna

The basics

Located just off the famous Ringstrasse to the south of Maria Theresien Platz, Vienna's Museum Quarter was completed in 2001 and covers 645,000 square feet (60,000 square meters), taking over the site of the former imperial stables to encompass a number of cafés, bars, restaurants, shops, and public spaces alongside its many museums and art institutions. A marvel of modern city planning, effortlessly blending baroque and modernist architecture, the MuseumsQuartier is a must for art lovers. Pair a visit here with a city tour to take in the top sights in Vienna like St. Stephen's Cathedral, Hundertwasserhaus, the Vienna State Opera, and the Albertina.

THIS WAS OUTSTANDING!
Hahaha. Omg. Biking in Amsterdam…everyone bikes in Amsterdam. We had been in the city two days prior to renting our bikes. Two days and not once did we see any sort of mishap, until we rented bikes. My husband and I were with our adult daughters and decided to join the masses. We rented bikes from Discount Bike Rental, which is associated with A-Bike Rental & Tours. As a matter of fact, this address for Discount Bike Rentals was provided as one of four places we could rent our bikes. This came as somewhat of a surprise to Kino, the employee at DBR, but that didn’t stop him from treating us with the utmost courtesy. He helped us get all set up in four bikes with a basket and a thingiemajob to hold my phone on the handle. He also gave us ideas regarding places to see, which was a great help since we rented the bikes for a day. We did a loop of the places he suggested, which gave us ample time on the bike and to explore the outskirts of the city. He was awesome, but that wasn’t the most memorable part of our ride. As I started to say, nary an accident did we witness in two days of walking the streets of Amsterdam, until one of my daughters caught her front wheel on a slippery tram track and almost went down. She dismounted that bike like she was in the My Bike’s Gonna Fall But I’m Not Olympics. She suffered a minor bruise, but it could’ve been so much worse. Fortunately, there was no damage to the bike. Phew. I’m laughing about it as I write this. We weren’t five minutes away from the shop when this happened. After that, it was smooth sailing. I really liked how upright the bikes allowed us to be. They were in great condition and rode easily. Thanks for the rentals, we will definitely look you up when we come back.
