  • The castle garden of the Imperial Palace is centrally located. The Palm House of the garden is very nice, also, there are two monuments. The garden invites you to linger.

  • Lovely park to hang out to with your friends... doing sport or come here to read your fave book. I had such a nice time here.. ❤
  • One of the most beautiful parks in Vienna. Spectacular in all weather. It’s also only a two minute walk from Volksgarten, so the two can be easily explored together.
  • Great place, especially if you are not afraid of the cold! I visited in winter. I thought I was going to freeze over!
  • Fantastic place to spend both day and night. There are spots for when people want to be alone and otherwise there are diverse sorts of people hanging around. Especially recommended is drinking wine here at night!
  • Beautiful garden, in the heart of the busy city of Vienna. A great way to escape among tall trees and nice to relax on the grass under one of these trees or just sit on a bench!
