It is a very nice place, you feel very close to nature there. If you can, bring a bag full of chestnuts and all the deers will eat from your palm. Also they have a rather large playground and a pond with the biggest fishes ever. If you have some bread with you, for sure you will asist at a... More

Lainzertiergarten on the edge of Vienna provides a delightful outdoor destination for the people of Vienna. Paths, woodlands, views, wildlife, gasthauses, fantastic opportunity for a walk in the woods. The city has invested significantly in the maintenance and improvement of this enclosed natural habitat and in the Hermes Villa complex. The city encourages use of the park’s extensive hiking trails... More

Nice park to visit, quite a big - so prepare to walk a lot, but main entrance is actually close to main attractions.

With its kilometres of paths, hills, woodland and pastures, this is a wonderful place to get away from the crowded centre of Vienna. We spent a whole day here hiking around and photographing wild boar, deer, birds and the views of Vienna and the distant mountains. Even on a national holiday there was plenty of space for everyone, perhaps because... More

Lainzer Tiergarten is a managed woodland in the south east corner of the Vienna municipality. It is a large wooded area with several walking paths, a few different children's play areas, and some animals. Travel to Lainzer Tiergarten can be achieved with public transport. Wien Hütteldorf station is very close to the north west entrance and buses/trams come pretty close... More

We walked at least 12 miles through the trails and off the trails looking for glimpse of boar. While we didn't find any, this park was the best, complete with a restaurant deep within center. Beautiful, scenic, and not too crowded.

Although this is a natural wilderness it is looked after by professionals. This is not suitable for small children who need to be in a pushchair.

I think the Fern3 review below has mixed up the Schonbrunn Tiergarten, where there is a large zoo, with the Lainzer Tiergarten which is more of a wildlife park/woods. There are supposed to be wild boar and deer in the woods but I suspect they keep well away from the well-trodden paths used by the many walkers.; at least I... More
