Gaswerksteg crosses over the Donaukanal and connects the districts Landstraße (3rd) and Leopoldstadt (2nd). The pedestrian bridge was extended on both sides in 1988. Beneath the bridge you will find in the 3rd district the depot of Vienna's underground railway Erdberg with the U3 station Erdberg.
Steinitzsteg crosses the Danube and New Danube and connects the 20th and 21 District with the Danube Island and the Hubertusdamm. It was built from 1994 to 1996 as a compensation for the one-way blockade of the north bridge during its refurbishment. From January to December 1996, the bridge was used as a two-lane detour route for traffic. Since then, the new bridge is an attractive link for pedestrians and bicyclists. The bridge is named after Wilhelm Steinitz, who is a well known chess world champion.
The MuseumsQuartier complex is accessed from passageways on all sides. Elongated, barrel-vaulted passages dating back to the baroque era connect the individual courtyards to one another. A Q21 initiative saw the establishment of several “micro museums” within the MQ complex in the form of themed passages. Permanent ceiling paintings are complemented by changing exhibitions shown in the passages, programmed by external curators.
The STREET ART PASSAGE VIENNA as public space presents works by international and local street artists. A permanent installation titled “Invaded Bridge” was conceptualized by French artist Invader, and Lois Weinberger provided the passage with a permanent text installation on the elevator tower. Curated by Sebastian Schager. www.betonblumen.org
