Came to Augarten to see the G- and L-Flak Towers. These two flak towers are in incredible shape and really give you a good idea how large these structures are. If you are a WW2 buff in Vienna go see them. The baroque park they sit in is one of the nicest parks I have ever been too. Beautiful landscape,... More

A beautiful garden in the neighbourhood. You can walk for miles and not use the same path. A great place to stop and rest while touring if your in the area. The flak towers are unbelievable for people who aren't used to see such things.

Great place for a walk or a jog. People come here to walk their dogs, read books in the park benches, or have a coffee or a meal at one of several restaurants/cafes in the part. Very nice atmosphere year-round. Beautiful flower beds in the summertime. There is a modern art museum in the back, with a nice cafe, and... More

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.

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighborhood Profile
Leopoldstadt
Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city center and take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old townhouses, churches, theaters, discount shops and ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.
