Beautiful flowers on a warm sunny day

I visited Volksgarten on a Sunday morning in August. The weather was warm and sunny and the flowers were beautiful. Everything was perfectly manicured. Very relaxing.

We had intended to only use Volksgarten as a cut through to Albertina Platz but it was so pretty and inviting we ended up spending around 45 minutes there - walking around the pathways and pausing to admire the autumn colours of the trees in the morning sunshine. The rose garden is particularly touching with each rose tree being dedicated... More

It was drizzling on my most recent visit but still, the gardens, pavilion and fountains of the Volksgarten are pleasant distractions from the busy city nearby. On a sunny day, Heaven.

Located right across from the Parliament and having a nice Rose Garden, it is a very relaxing place for quiet meditation. One could spend quality time here while walking along Ringstrasse to see historic sights.

We were just walking around when we came upon this garden - what a lovely surprise. We did not get to fully appreciate it, as our time was limited, but it would have been wonderful to sit and enjoy people watching, let alone looking at all the different plantings, flowers, etc. that were there.

This is a garden space designed totally for peace, comfort and enjoyment, including its fountains, the many rose plantings, quiet bench areas for relaxing and, in the summer, a blanket on the grass. It's used as much by local Viennese as well as tourists. The location is just across the Ringstrasse from the Parliament. Wunderbar!!!

Right in front of the Hofburg Palace sits the green space of the Volksgarten. Great place to sit and relax on a nice day. Lots of interesting scultures and a large pantheonesque structure in the middle that doubles as an exhibition space.

Nice place with hundred of roses and a good possibility to relax in the city center. If you need a place to rest your legs after the city sightseeing go there and enjoy.

Well-made Western-style garden and opened to everybody for free of charge. The municipality of Vienna has done a good job maintaining it and keeping it free so that every single resident in Vienna equally enjoys what Vienna has to offer (Volksgarten is a people's park in German). This is a perfect place to take a break from the sightseeing in... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
