A small but beautiful park with a Greek style temple at its centre, and masses of red rose bushes. A pleasant place to sit and relax before continuing the tourist trek. Plenty of seats, toilet facilities, and refreshments available.

Exquisite, gorgeous display of roses, old favourites and some you've never heard of. This was one of the highlights of my trip to Vienna. Late May was the perfect time to see it.

the volksgarten is a not remarkable park. but opposite there is the national library well worth a visit, and the main university, full of life.
in the back there is the dicotheque "volksgarten" famous for good musik - if you are fit & young enough to spend a night there ..;-)

Volksgarten (People's Park) is one of handful of public spaces near the Hapsburg Palace that makes for a nice place to rest your feet from sightseeing during your time in Vienna.

Located between Burgtheatre and Heldenplatz, these were the grounds of city fortifications that were destroyed by Napoleon's army in 1809 and later converted to a public park in 1823.

Here you can a few interesting things in addition to finding some nice green space to have rest your feet and just enjoy being in Vienna. Here you can see some nice fountains and rose gardens, which are more optimally seen during the warmer months of the year, the monument to Empress Elisabeth and the Athenian temple of Theseus.

There is also a small Cafe Meirerei, only open from April to September. This is a lovely eatery which has another year round restaurant sharing venue with Steirereck Restaurant in Stadtpark.

Unfortunately, during the winter, the rose bushes which line many of the walkways through Volksgarten are covered to protect them against the weather. This makes visits during this time of year much less favourable to that of the warmer months, when Volksgarten is a highly recommendable place to spend a bit of time in Vienna.

Colourful park with many flowers. Some sculptures, and street musicians. There istnieje also a funny section with small trees labeled with names of loving pairs. Endorphines up! ;)
