It is actually an urban park with shady alleys under various species of trees from Asia, Americas and Europe. In addition to the temperate continental flora, there are a few tropical species such as bamboo. A special attraction is the alpine flora spot, where visitors can observe alpine flowers accommodated on a little manmade rocky hill.
The botanical garden features a free public toilet. We were lucky enough to encounter a squirrel, which approached our bench while we were taking a snack.
The entrance is free.

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.

We found an entrance opposite the cafe on the side of Belvedere Palace. Winding paths and labels on the many plants and trees made for a relaxing stroll. Didn't expect many flowers to be out but there were some, plus trees breaking out into blossom. It will be lovely in the summer.

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.

The Botanical gardens and Alpine gardens were lovely, we didn't even know they were there as they were not advertised at all. We happened to come across them when were visiting Belvedere (also a beautiful, and free to visit, garden) and spent most of the day wandering through them. I would advise anyone who is travelling to Vienna to explore the area, it was a wonderful day and it didn't cost a penny!

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.

Right in the midst of this very large city is a lovely garden nearby the old university. I have taken this walk in broad daylight, but also in the evening as the sun is starting to set and the city lights are starting to come on. It is free and worth bringing a friend. The first friend I took (decades ago) later became my wife!

I visited in late October and was dazzled by the gorgeous colors. This place oozed tranquility. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and stayed most of the afternoon. The pathways are laid out to reveal surprising vistas, there are 'hidden' gems to be discovered. Most of the sensitive plants were gone now, but the fall display was nevertheless awesome, so I plan on returning next spring and summer to see what this garden has to offer at those seasons.

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
