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.

  • Beautiful park, less crowded than others nearby and it has a Mozart statue on the west side. great place to sit down and relax for a bit, and in the heart of the city when you want to continue your site seeing...
  • Great park. Nice for a picnic. Not too crowded even on a sunny Sunday morning.
  • A beautiful, if small, imperial garden with a glass conservatory housing a butterfly house, a restaurant/Caffè and a "palmenhaus" - winter storage for tropical plants. Nice little lake and lots of people chilling on the grass during the warm months.
  • Pleasant place for an evening with wine and buffet dinner on the outskirts of Vienna
  • Beautiful garden, place where you can just chill with friends or take a break alone.

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.
