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.
