Really beautiful park, i visited it in November so it was kind of romantic, colours of the very late fall, cold wid, hundreds of birds ready to leave Vienna for some warmer gardens. And 2 unbelievable concrete structures, dating from WWII...really hard to describe. If interested in Euriopean history, you must see it. Very inspiring...

Nice Park with free entrance. Suitable for a quiet stroll as it didn't seem to be busy when we visited. The Austrian's know how to do gardens in Vienna and this was okay but not as good as some of the city centre parks and gardens near to the Museum quarter and Historic centre.

Lovely park for a stroll around. its not massive but its most pleasant. There is a nice little cafe here for an al fresco strudel, a few different play parks (more designed for younger children) and a kids-only open air swimming pool. Its free for kids but if adults want to go in then you have to pay. Also in... More

Right around the corner from our apartment, the gardens are a great place for a before-dinner stroll (there are a number of reasonable local restaurants all around this area). The park is a wonderfully diverse place, with beach volleyball courts, soccer pitches, wooded areas, and gardens. It is very popular, with lots of families strolling, biking, and playing. Looming over... More

Just over the river is Augarten: lovely gardens and two amazing WWII flak towers. This is a wonderful (and free) way to see Vienna's recent and distant history rubbing shoulders. The cafe is excellent and boasts that it has hosted performances by Mozart, Bach and Beethoven.

A great park for strolling around, lying in the grass, kicking the ball around, or anything outside really. It is absolutely beautiful and it's interesting to see the sharp contrast of the anti-aircraft towers. It has many shaded areas and tree-lined walkways for strolling or jogging or just relaxing. There are a few restaurants and other attractions in the park,... More

Large park with formal gardens, woods, open spaces, but most striking are the two large WW2 flak towers. There are numerous treelined avenues, and even an outdoor swimming pool. Well worth a stroll on a sunny day. You can get there by taking the U-Bahn U1 to Taborstr, and then walk a few minutes.

Very nice park near my Austrian flat! It is really relaxing to walk in the park and see people doing sport or having pic nic on the glass. The parks in Vienna are very nice.

The Augarten is a beautiful place to visit, stroll for a walk outside by yourself, with family, kids or friends. This is a beloved spot for the locals who regularly come to the garden for exercise -- walking, running and/or biking. The gardens are currently in full bloom and just lovely to see. However, if you are going to compare... More

The parkland at Augarten in Vienna is fairly ordinary compared to other spectacular gardens in this city, such as those at Schonbrunn,and Belvedere. While staying with family near here recently we decided to explore the area. Certainly the gardens are not that spectacular, but it was quiet, shady and therefore pleasant enough for a walk in the summer. We really... More
