The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

Again, a visit to this amazing formal garden. Fountains, flowers and trees. Roses, well cared for, in their second iteration of blooms in July and everything so neat and well groomed. A garden this beautiful city can always be proud of, so well maintained by staff and some local volunteers. Always welcoming!!!

Beautiful place for a stroll. I love Vienna in that they have kept so much green space for the citizens and visitors to the city. This garden was meticulously maintained. Even though it was the end of October, the roses were still in bloom. Completely free and you get the ambience of the whole city.

Very well kept, beautiful park. We made the mistake of visiting the slightly hidden cafe. The staff was excellent, the Coffee was OK and the Strudel wasn't strudel it was supermarket apple cake. The best word to describe it is " ordinary". Maybe very ordinary..

I am so disappointed that the bouncers exclude people based on skin color. They let me in but then stopped my friends (who were all non-white) and then told us our group of 5 people was too big and we needed a reservation. They told us the decision was final as we watched dozens of people go in behind us and they didn't check any of them for a reservation.

From the manny gardens of Vienna it is often difficult to choose where you go for a stroll. Now the Volksgarten (Peoples Garden ) has a few landmarks and sights to be checked out .
So first to mention, is the monument of Empress Elizabeth - you will find it close to the Ringstrasse just as you enter the gardens from the direction Burgtheater.
Several fountains are also to be found in the garden ... Caffes - open mainly during the summer, in the winter time not much there.
A replica of the temples of Athens is also here - it is interesting , scaled down ... but nonetheless it is interesting.
Now I was visiting during February - but I recommend you check it out during the summer or even spring, I bet it is great ....
Also in this garden you will find joggers, people walking and of course you can do sports - like in all the parks of Vienna. ... Enjoy the Volksgarten when you are in Vienna.

The Volksgarten is a garden that’s part of the Hofburg Palace complex but now a public garden. The garden is fairly large and you could easily spend hours wandering around it. The highlight of the garden has to be beautiful rose gardens with I’m told over 3,000 rose bushes of about 400 different cultivars. Besides the rose garden, there’s also plenty of monuments to notable Austrians, and also a Neo-Classical temple called the Temple of Theseus.

Worth visiting as part of any Vienna itinerary.

Things that may be helpful: 1) On Ringstrasse across from the Parliament; 2) Free; 3) An easy walk from anywhere in the city center, or take the tram (route #1 or #2) to get there.

A great imperial park with a fine rose garden. We were lucky to hit it during peak rose season. A large variety of roses are all over the park. There are chairs and benches everywhere to sit and soak up the colors and smells.

A very nice 30-60 minute stroll even if you are on your way somewhere else.

I walked through this garden a few times on the way from Hofburg to the Rathaus. It was very lovely place full of roses, with a fountain and a lot of benches to sit and relax.

Volks garden is situated kind of between The Rathaus & Hofburg Palace and offers a respite from the hustle & bustle of Vienna. This park features an endless amount of roses of various colours as well as nice pebble paths which to stroll around. This is a nice place to stop and get away from everything.
