    The scale of the gardens around the Schönbrunn Palace is incredible.

    They are completely free to enter, and you could spend hours walking around as they are immaculately kept, with seemingly endless roads and paths to explore.

    The main fountain is impressive, and walking up the hill to the Gloriette building is a must as the view is amazing.

    If you want to do some activities you can spend some money on the various museums, the zoo, the viewing platform, but for a free experience this has to be on your list.

    It is difficult to describe anything as average in Vienna, and although the park is nice enough, it is the buildings that make it.

    Indeed Vienna has a lot green areas and parks - this is one of those parks ...But as mentioned is more to it than for the first will meet the eye -there are several potential points of interest scattered in/and around the park:
    - WWII mementos of war in the shape of 2 decommissioned - but still standing menacing anti-aircraft towers - the once dreaded Flakturms. Today they are just the skeletons reminding of an era of terror and anti-semitism that shall never return.
    - Vienna Porcelain Manufactory in Ausgarten - if you are interested in the art o porcelain you can pay a visit.
    - MuTh Concert Hall - temporary close - but very interesting to check out otherwise.
    - Restaurants and Eateries - two of those in/near the park - "Die Schankwirtschaft im Augarten" and the "Am Nordpol 3".
    - Familienbad Augarten - Family Barth Augarten - as the name says a bath / swimming pool complex at the edge of the park.
    If none of the above is for you there are several other things - like chilling on the green pitch, maybe having a picnic with friends , also walking or riding a bicycle can be an option.
    So, overall if you want a patch of green and you are in the area this park can be the right spot for you.

    We took a walk through the gardens to get back to our hotel and they were beautiful. As entry to the gardens are free you should take the time to stroll through instead of the road or taking the trams.

    Very well kept, with statues, fountains, and impressive building containing museums and galleries should you be looking for a paid activity.

    Beautiful garden, really worth a visit in the early summer! Lots of flowers and other plants, everything well organized in various thematic gardens. As it's located a bit more on the side, it's not crowded. Many tables and seats to rest or even have a picnic outside. Worth visiting also with children thanks to many cool playgrounds.

    This activity requires a Eu 4 entrance fee, but with unlimited time to stroll the winding paths through the vegetation. Very little was blooming at time of my visit, but the Alpine flora is extremely season dependent. Overall a pleasant enough experience to garner a recommedation from this traveler. Takes about an hour for an enjoyable stroll.

    On a weekday morning, it was peaceful and quiet (the only people there were other mums with kids). The park area is huge, with hills, ponds, statues (not to mention the Oberlaa pools, with separate entry - we did not have enough time to visit them). But you could spend an entire day at the park, on a picnic. There are a number of playgrounds for bigger and smaller kids (including some water channels with locks, which my son loved), there's a small cafe with ice cream, there are giant swings, a climbing wall, skateboard area...you name it.

    A really nice palace, with great free gardens worth visiting! At the end of the garden, you'll find a nice cherry tree, don't miss it!

    On the day that we visited at the end of May, workers were wheeling potted citrus trees into the Privy Garden and the floral displays were really just getting going. But we could see how pretty the formal gardens would be when the flowers were in full bloom. There is a long vine-covered walkway and some good views of the palace. We went in because there was no charge, since it was already covered by our Vienna Passes. Consider whether it is worth paying the small entrance fee if it's not summer blooming season. The garden is located just to the left of the palace as you approach from the main gate. Half an hour or less will be enough time for this garden; it is quite small.

    Museum is great and the history of the two palaces makes the garden more mystique. Had my morning run every morning I stayed there and it's charming views, sculptures are never a boring view

    Hyblerpark is a small park on the 11th Bezirk, at the border with the third. The park was recently renewed and the peculiarity is that it is on two different levels. The park is nice, however, I find it really too small for the amount of people coming everyday. There is need of more greenery in the area, but it seems that they are just building everywhere, not leaving much for the people.
