  • Located near the upper Park Belvedere, entrance vsobodnyj. Very small square rather than a park or garden. Struck bloom, December, some Chinese plants. Small but very cosy.

  • Honestly october is not quite good time to visit any garden. But I realized in october too that Vienna BG is lovely and peaceful place in the middle of big city. It´s full of beautiful flowers, trees....  more »
  • The Botanical Gaden of Vienna located next to Belvedere gardens in the 3rd district is part of the University of Vienna. It covers a huge area with more than 11.000 plants. It is such a nice walk!  more »

  • It is free and beautiful, what do you want more? ;) Great for a walk with the family or a morning run. Pay attention to the different closing times during the year!
  • Wonderful place for walks, jogging and relaxing. Also very good place for children. Here there is a possibility to organize children birthday party.
  • It's a very beautiful garden and the fact that it's free entry is great. I would've appreciated if there was more information about the plants and maybe the names in other languages other than German.
  • Tranquil walks down shady paths with the warm smell of pine trees. Lovely.
  • If you're familiar with botanical gardens in the UK, then this one is probably going to disappoint. Ok, the plants and trees have identifying labels, but there isn't a wealth of interesting plant varieties and neither is there a spectacular floral display (in April I'd expect some well-thought-out spring beds, rather than a few tulips pushing through the grass). It is much more like a municipal park - and as such it makes for a very pleasant stroll and entry is free. Go and visit on a warm day, but don't expect Kew Gardens.

Where to stay in Vienna

As a former imperial capital, Vienna is full of lavish hotels reminiscent of the city’s royal past. If you’re traveling on a budget, it’s not hard to find hotels for a more affordable price. Consider staying in the Innere Stadt, or First District, if you only have a short time in town, as you’ll be within easy walking distance to many of the city’s main tourist attractions. Outside of the central core, Leopoldstadt, or Second District, lines the Danube and offers peaceful walks through tree-lined paths. For shopaholics, Mariahilf, or Sixth District, is a central neighborhood with busy shopping streets and lively markets.
