View the renowned Mozart Denkmal statue, created in 1896 by Austrian sculptor Victor Tilgner, at Burggarten. This palace garden with its informal English layout opened to the public in 1918 with the fall of the Habsburg Empire. It features numerous monuments, including a fountain with a statue of Hercules fighting a lion, and a statue of Emperor Franz-Joseph I and Empress Franz I. Don't miss the butterfly garden within the larger garden, or the small zoo on the grounds. A visit to Burggarten represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Vienna itinerary builder to plot your vacation.

  • In the summer, you can sit quite wonderfully here under the trees and relax. Various monuments decorate the Park, but also the small pond liked us. The most famous monument is the Mozart, right at the ring. Until 1918, the Garden only for the ruling House was accessible, because we can speak of happiness that we these so-called "noble people" are going on.

  • We went for Mozart and on our way to the Schmetterlinghaus. It was so beautiful that we decided to have a picnic and just stay and read in the sun. Beautiful park very conveniently located. 
  • In beautiful weather, we would spend hours! This garden is quite great well maintained and wherever one looks full with beautiful plants and trees. A place to stay!

  • A very nice garden that is clean. If you're there, you should visit the butterfly house and the museum. It's amazing to lay down on the grass and soaking up the summer sun.
  • Beautiful park with loads of roses. Good option to go from the 'Rathaus' to the 'Hofburg'. I miss a children area thought.
  • Despite the some maintenance work being done on the back of the Austrian National Library, the garden itself is clean and filled with very well maintained lawns of lush green grass. Even if you are not a Classical music fan the statue of Mozart close to the entrance of the garden is very lovely, helped along with the beautiful treble clef music note created out of flowers and planted just in front of the statue.
  • A small garden ,with Palmenhaus and Butterflyhouse, it worths a visit
  • Lovely little park to walk around, relax and enjoy the surrounding architecture.
