This activity requires a Eu 4 entrance fee, but with unlimited time to stroll the winding paths through the vegetation. Very little was blooming at time of my visit, but the Alpine flora is extremely season dependent. Overall a pleasant enough experience to garner a recommedation from this traveler. Takes about an hour for an enjoyable stroll.

Don't (as some reviewers have done) confuse the Alpine Garden with the nearby University Botanical Garden. Trip Advisor's editors should be more careful about this apparent confusion. The Alpine Garden is affiliated with the Belvedere Palace, not the University -- two different gardens, fact! The Alpine Garden combines a collection of Alpine mountain plants with specimens from all over the world, plus a Bonsai collection and a Japanese Garden with Koi Pond. The property is creatively divided with pathways, walkways, benches and the occasional hardscape feature. We noticed a senior couple quietly reading in the middle of the garden, which is left a bit wild and, therefore, natural, for which the keepers should be saluted. Seen best in season, but worth the trip near Belvedere Castle, on the upper ("ober") end of the castle grounds. Paid admission. A bit off the beaten path in Vienna and highly recommended. But, remember, the nearby University Botanical Garden, which is free and quite interesting, is a different garden. Trip Advisor should note this more clearly.

Visiting the Alpine Garden was well worth the 4 Euro admission. Early June was probably a perfect time to see the garden in full bloom. Plenty of variety of plants planted decoratively with beautiful rocks and water features. We also wandered the botanic gardens where the highlight was the cactus garden. Between the two we spent almost two hours wandering and enjoying.

All succulent and tropical houses are closed. Very confined space within the city. Granted it is only early Spring but not enough to grab your attention when glasshouses are closed. Not as impressive as the Belvedere virtually next door.

We passed by several times during our stay but only visited here on the last morning of our stay just really to kill some time. Opening at 10am and with no entry fees it’s worth a look and provides a bit of peace from the hustle of the streets outside. Various species of plants and trees to see, we just took a general wander around, there’s no particular specimens which have any special wow-factor, again it’s more a place you can escape for a few minutes from the city.
