My wife and I just recently finished our vacation to Vienna, Austria on the occasion of our 20th wedding anniversary. The Botanical Gardens, located on the grounds of Upper Belvedere were absolutely amazing - even though it was late October there will still a wide variety of flowers blooming and the walk through the gardens is wonderful - a very...

I am shocked to see how few people visited and reviewed Botanical garden. I'm not sure many even know it's right next to Belvedere, and there is no person who does not visit Belvedere, sooo - you got it? it's an absolute must, because it is literally whole world on one place. So many plants and trees you'll need whole... More

Note: I haven't visited the Alpine garden, my review is relevant for the rest of the garden. The garden is much smaller than other botanical gardens that I've been to (such as the ones in Berlin and Niagara falls) which makes the variety quite small, and is all green with no other colors. It is worth passing through the garden,... More

Mostly a nice green oasis of calm in a busy city. What made it for me was the area dedicated to cacti, succulents and other plants from hot parts of the World. They certainly have a comprehensive collection.

This quiet garden is next to the Belvedere and could easily be included in a visit to the museum. There is an entrance just to the left as you leave the lake entrance to the Belvedere. The gardens are free and are very pleasant to wander round on a sunny day. There is plenty to get your attention including a... More

Adjacent to the Belvedere these gardens provide and oasis of cool and quiet, especially from the July heat. There is a small charge for the Alpine Garden which contains (besides many native plants) a number of bonsai trees. Again a nice place to wander away from the hustle and bustle.

Looks more like a poorly maintained dense park, than botanical gardens. It's green, sure, but there's not much colour.

Easy to find & free entrance the Vienna Botanical gardens. They are definitely worth a visit. Attention to detail does vary across them but the alpine garden was incredible & the bamboo exhibit unusual. Boxty enjoyed the peace & tranquility!

We loved the botanic gardens which make up a good part of the grounds of the magnificent Belvedere Palaces. They are well worth a visit and a good place also to have a walk. The planting is interesting and the care devoted to the gardens by Vienna University makes them an interesting place to visit. I am sure that many... More
