Rathauspark  

Rathauspark


The Rathaus Park was designed in 1863 when Emperor Franz Joseph I decided to do away with the parade ground. He asked a gardener named Dr. Rudolf Siebeck to design the park.
Today the park derives much of its character from the highly varied selection of woody plants.

Stadtpark  

Stadtpark


The City Park is regarded as a link between the city centre and the third district: From any side pedestrians approach the park, they will find a different environment.
Those coming from the “Stadtbahn” railway pavilions will see Viennese Art Nouveau, those entering the park from the third district cross a hilly part of the park and will find a contemporary steel sculpture by Donald Judd. Those approaching from Ringstrasse follow shady paths to come suddenly upon the airy park meadows and the popular Johann Strauss monument.

Burggarten


The Burggarten was constructed in 1819 by Ludwig v. Remy und Franz Antoine. It is situated in the first district of Vienna quite close to the Hofburg and the Opera house.

Pötzleinsdorfer Schlosspark  

Pötzleinsdorfer Schlosspark


The park is situated in the 18th district and is ranked with the most beautiful gardens in Vienna. In spring when the azaleas and rhododendrons are in bloom this park is one that visitors will remember for years.
One of the park’s attractions is the giant sequoias lining the avenue that used to be the main entrance to the palace. Today parts of the park are used for playgrounds and sunbathing areas, but most of it is still a delightful landscape garden for romantic and relaxing walks.
