It reminds me of the garden of the Belle Epoque, the nice garden with several flowers and should be beautiful in a month when the hundreds roses will bloom and the small "iron" chairs side by side...

Located in the middle of the museum area this little park is an ideal place to sit and watch the world go by. Surprisingly tranquil considering that it is surrounded by main roads.

The gardens(translates to " peoples park "),are a must stop for tourists just to stop sit on the grass have some lunch,ice cream,drinks etc and just take in the wonderful buildings surrounding this area...........the gardens are kept to an immaculate standard and rightly called the " peoples park ".

The park has a lot of varieties of roses that fills the air with sweet scents during the summer. You can just sit and enjoy the beautiful colorful roses when they are in full bloom. It can get crowded because it's free, no entrance fee required. It also is surrounded with other tourist spots that are walking distance.

Lots of building works get in the way, but if you use your imagination you'll be fine....! Still worth a walk through though

We saw it and the end of our journey, so when you see all other gardens this one is average compared to them. If you skip the visit, you will not miss much.

We walked through here as often as we could whilst in Vienna just to take 5 minutes to take stock and chill. Really lo Roy park with plenty of seating and places to lay on the grass. Friendly vibe about the place too.

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
