I can’t resist a bit of street art spotting whenever I travel. The easiest place to see a bit of street art in Vienna is the appropriately (and obviously) named Street Art Passage, which connects the Museum Quarter to the Spittalberg district.
This is one of six passageways leading into the Museum Quarter, each one a mini-museum with its own theme. The Street Art Passage features permanent installations by Invader, Lois Weinberger and BUSK.
More importantly, it’s an ever-changing gallery of exhibitions by different street artists. Read about them in the mini-magazine Beton Blumen, which is sold from a postcard vending machine on the premises.
The Street Art Passage is kind of the obvious place to go, as far as street art in Vienna is concerned. But it was missing that unique frisson of surprise and delight that comes with spotting street art in an unexpected place.
No, that little kick was something I found elsewhere. Read on to share my discovery.
