The Lainzer Tiergarten is a wildlife location in the 13th district of Vienna. Almost all of it is covered in woodland, so it’s a perfect destination for long walks. What’s really lovely about this place is that you can either grab a lunch/coffee at the café or visit the museum in the Hermesvilla (or both of course).

Great park to visit, accessible via strassenbahn/bus - about 45-60 minute trip from city center. Lots of hiking trails, including one that gets great views of the city and surrounding countryside. 2-3 places to stop and have a drink or something to eat. Head to the "windmill" for the best views.

... and one of the very first. but they work hard to make this a truly entertaining / educational / animal-friendly experience. and there are a lot of architectural curiosities too.

Good for going out of the city, enjoying the nature and "wandern" /hiking. A huge playground for children at Lainzer Tor.

There are several entrances, three of which are well connected to public transport systems, there are several routes in each direction. Every now and then you will also see some information tablet explaining some features of the park or the... More

This is a great park very close to the city - you can have a long walk in this huge area and come close to wild animals - should be carefull / wild hogs are runing there free and are not afraid of people. Recommended for people loving long walks - you are not alowed to take your dog inside.

This is a HUGE park. It has some enclosures were you can see large groups of animals roaming around freely, like deer, mouflons and more. The Hermes villa that is located inside is very pretty and you should go inside if you're interested in historic architecture and furniture. Great playgrounds for the kids.
