HOT PUNCH AND OTHER TREATS
IT’S ALL NEW AT WINTER IM MQ – THE MQbis ARE HERE!
Winter im MQ has been given a dazzling new look this year. As a modern design feature, the MQbis once again demonstrate the harmonious combination of historical architecture and contemporary atmosphere. Their crystalline structure and illuminated surfaces form an exciting architectural meeting-place. The MQbis are lit by specially produced LED cubes. Each cube is controlled individually and the geometric pattern of the cubes on the ceiling gives visitors a remarkable experience of spatial depth. In combination with lighting in the trees, this creates a unique illuminated atmosphere in the MQ Main Courtyard. Art, culture and a love of hot punch come together in the MQbis by Biosk, Café Leopold, Café.Restaurant.

MOTOR RACING IN MINIATURE
Where water usually ripples in the basin, motor fans can now live out their dreams of speed with remote-controlled cars on the daring Winter Race track — fast curves, dangerous jumps and an opponent hot on your tail.
Car rental costs € 5 for 10 minutes. Or bring your own car and race for free.
The track can also be hired for exclusive use from Mon to Fri from firstname.lastname@example.org.
Try out the Winter Race for free on opening night!

MICRO EXTREME BOWLING
Nov 16 to Dec 21, every Thu, 16:00–20:00
THINK, ADJUST, AND BOWL
Extreme Bowling is an analogue, kinetic, hybrid game and is a combination of bowling, billiards and golf. Players don’t aim directly at the pins but must use a ramp and find the right angle to knock them down around a corner — think, adjust and bowl.
WINTERLICHT - LIGHT SHOW
“Winterlicht” stands for the static and moving projections created by LICHTTAPETE that give the “Winter im MQ” program its visual feel. Integrating the architecture on site is an important part of the work. Every evening, changing large-scale projections on the Leopold Museum and on the internal and external facades of the MQ courtyards provide different settings for “Winter im MQ”.
Mon to Fri, 16:00–22:00
Sat, Sun and Holidays, 14:00–22:00
