Inside the MQ (Museums Quartier) you will find a big variety of winter-activities such as skating or "Eisstock-schiessen" that you may see on my main picture. This is quite a popular sport in the alpine regions of Austria and Germany and you will have to try to get your "stick" as close as possible to another stick that is placed at the end of the track. Several players try to do so and each of them also has the possibility to push the "target-stick" and the other sticks away from its original position and so the game could be ended completly as a surprise. Mostly it is played by 2 teams fighting against each other

Equipment: You get all of the equipment there, you simply should have shoes that are not extremely slippery on the ice.

Directions: MQ / Museums Quartier is in a distance of 200 meters from Ringstrasse, opposite of Kunsthist. and Naturhist. museum, another entrance is at the beginning of Mariahilferstrasse.
Theme: Other
