It's a beautiful and well kept park with a couple of playgrounds and quiet spots. Normally is not very busy so it's good to relax. People go there for jogging, do yoga or other sports. There's even a small outdoor swimming pool that's posibl eto...More

The Flak Towers in the Augarten were constructed by Hitler. Soldiers stood guard on top of it during WWII. My mother used to go and play there with her sisters. She said, no matter how many times the Allies struck those towers, they never collapsed....More

I only really visited the park to see the flak tower. It looked rather battered and mistreated. The park is a pleasant green space.

We went into the restaurant located in the grounds, ordered some drinks and asked for the menu. 30 mins later after locals had been served trays of drinks and food, my husband stopped the manager & complained. We then left.

My husband loves World War II history and our visit to the Augarten was on his list of must-see attractions. He was not disappointed in these 2 mammoth Flak towers from the Nazi German occupation. They were fearsome and still in great condition for their...More

This park / garden is a beautiful place to chill, spend some time with your children, jog and to discover some of the history of Vienna. You can find there a Flak tower from the WWII and visit the porcelain museum.

I saw these towers from my hotel (Sofitel) and realised that they were Flak Towers, which I had read about. The presence of these towers within a peaceful park caused me to reflect on the horrors of war, reinforced by the graffiti - “Never Again”...More

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

Public Transport or Taxi (2 Replies)
Hi, this is our first visit to Vienna. We arrive by bus from Budapest at A Becs Wien Sudtiroler Platz, A6 and are staying at Hotel Am Augarten. Is it possible to travel to hotel via public transport or better to take a taxi? We arrive in Vienna at 17.50hrs. Any information would be much appreciated.

hi, it is certainly better to use public transport. You can ask at the information desk. The girls there are usually friendly and informative.

Lodging In Vienna for 1 Month (16 Replies)
Hi Everyone. I'm back now to find a place for my trip to Vienna. I'll be there Nov. 16 until Dec. 14. I had an older thread going (https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g19045…) about where to stay, but then had to change plans and fly back to the US to fix a tooth (root canal), which is almost finished, so I'm now looking for a place to stay again. My choices are more limited now than before, as I have less time to my arrival. However, I have narrowed options down to 8 places - not ideal,...More

Best place for a picnic (6 Replies)
Hi everyone! Can anyone share/recommend the best place for a picnic? More of a place where we can sit on the grass and spread out a bit. I know Volksgarten looks beautiful, but mostly benches and maybe not the most appropriate place to be on the lawn? Perhaps Augarten? And I think Vienna Woods might be a little to far... Thanks so much! Brooke
