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

Overshadowed by the magnificence of the adjacent Belvedere Palace and Gardens, these botanical gardens can easily be overlooked. It would indeed be a shame. They are full of European and exotic trees and shrubs, some with very tall canopies providing a botanical bear hug in urban Vienna. In particular one should not miss the glass house with a species of... More

A fabulous collection of all the top park tree classics in manicured grounds, and every tree has a nameplate. As good as the Montpellier arboretum. For non-tree lovers this must be one of the quietest and most lovely green spaces in the city.

We visited this and the Alpine Garden just after a very dissappointing trip to the Belvedere. This was wonderful. It isn't a tourist/ visitor attraction but more of an arboretum / park used by local people. Part of the university so everything is signed. Fantastic hostas. Very peaceful and off the beaten track The Botanic Garden is free, and it... More

Whenever you visit Belvedere castle and gardens take your time to visit the adjacent botanical garden especially the ALPENGARTEN where there are examples of the alpine flora in beautiful setting and have a look at the interesting architecture of the buildings blending into the garden
