It is a bit different compared to the rest of the city. The garden is divided in sections and it is quite large. If you are interested in plants and trees, you may spend around and hour. It is for free and it is closed at 6 pm.

We’ve accidentaly stumbled upon this place and were pleasantly suprised. It’s a great point for all plant-lovers and also a place to sit and relax for a while.

Each time I visit Vienna I spend a couple of hours walking around. There is an other garden next to it (entry fee is 4 eur) which is small, but packed with flowers. If you like flowers, or taking pictures about flowers, you must jump in

We visited this garden on a cloudy day but that didn't detract from it's loveliness. It was free for us to get in (this may have been because it was a Sunday?) and we spent about 45 minutes slowly wandering around and taking in the calm atmosphere.

If you enter the gardens from the top you find a nigh neglected garden with trees planted far too closely. A real disappointment. From the middle down the picture changes and there are many attractive specimens and the area is much better maintained.

Stopped off here on out tour round Vienna and found it an enjoyable little walk round on a sunny day. Plenty of interesting trees so nice and shady when you want it.

The botanical garden is just nearby the park of Schloss Belvedere. Entrance to the bonatical garden is free. (A minor charge applies if you would like to see the Alpine Garden). If you would like to get a break during hot summer days, an ideal place. A small, but wonderful "green" area of the city. Mix with locals who enjoy... More

I planned this as a scenic walk through from our hotel to the Schloss Belvedere but it turned out to be one of the unexpected highlights of our trip. From walking through the gates it's a beautiful well-kept oasis of beauty and tranquillity with many excellent specimens of plants and trees beautifully landscaped and all well marked. Special mention goes... More

This beautiful botanical gardens next to Belvedere is an easy walk from most of the hotels in the historic district. It is so pleasant and a very nice retreat from the noise of the city. There are several very distinct areas with plants indigenous to various parts of the world. Definitely worth a visit if you are going to see... More

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...
