Soothing walk

Empress Elisabeth, called Sisi, led a sad life, enduring tragic death of her son, until she was assassinated in Geneva by an Italian anarchist.

Make your way to Hofburg Palace through the Volksgarten. As any Austrian garden, it's well kept, long, and very beautiful. It's a really nice place to stroll around.

Well laid out gardens sited in the Burgring offering a pleasant walk among flower beds and lawns. The paths offer a route off the ring road and a short cut to the historic buildings.

After walking through Vienna and visiting the Christmas markets, it was nice to walk into the peaceful area called Volksgarten. The history, architecture and sculptures were just beautiful as we walked through the garden. I believe it would be amazing when everything blooms, but still was a little bit of peace among the hustle of Vienna.

While one really couldn't call Vienna stressful or hectic at all in the first place, somehow the Volksgarten finds a way to allow for an even deeper level of peacefulness and bliss to overtake you. Beautiful any time of year.

What a wonderful opportunity for a break in a middle of a long day looking at Vienna's beautiful architecture. Right by the Rathaus (city hall) and the Parliament building you'll find this beautiful public garden. You can sit and relax or take a walk while enjoying the trees and flowers.

If you like roses this is your heaven in spring - many hundreds of varieties! The gardens are magnificent during winter too. There's a delighfully restored Roman building and an historic toilet. Lots of seating so you can watch the world go by.

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.
