Halle E + G in the MuseumsQuartier is the exclusive art venue in the center of Vienna. Events like the Wiener Festwochen, the Tanzquartier Wien and numerous international productions in the fields of music, theater and dance are hosted her.
The former imperial court stables served for many years as a fair and exhibition area. In 1985, the Wiener Festwochen used the former Messepalast for cultural purposes for the first time. From 1985 to 1997, the exhibition halls became important venues for the Wiener Festwochen. With the conversion of the exhibition palace to the MuseumsQuartier, the neo-baroque winter riding hall, which is under monument protection, was transformed into Halle E and below it to the smaller Halle G.
