    This is one of several monument filled public parks along Vienn'a Ringstraße. Burggarten is the former private garden of the Hapsburgs just beside the Palace which was opened to the public in 1919. The park is open from 6am to 8pm (summer months) and 7 to 5.30pm (winter months) and is beautiful year round.

    I've enjoyed seeing Burggarten under a layer of snow as well as during warmer months like this past September when the park was vibrantly green, well suited for afternoon visitors basking in the sun on the grassy lawns or retreating to the shade of the benches that line the western end of the garden.

    You'll find a handful of interesting statues within the garden grounds, something fun for those who enjoy monument viewing. Also look for the charming Palmenhaus in the back near the Palace where you can enjoy a round or two of drinks outside on their terrace during nice weather.

    Overall, Burggarten is a nice city park conveniently located for a quick pass through even on the busiest of sightseeing schedules around Vienna. For park lovers, it's worth targeting as a place to spend a bit of time while in the city.

    These gardens are part of the Belvedere complex and comprise the lower gardens, which are laid out over three terraces between the two palaces, and the upper garden which is on the other side of the upper main palace (now a museum) which has a large reflection pool.

    The gardens were commenced around 1700 and the public has been allowed free entry since 1780. The gardens are laid out in a Baroque style with symmetrical flower beds, trimmed hedges, lots of grass areas, fountains, pathways and steps between the tiers. There are also a number of statues.

    Unfortunately there was not a lot of colour visible from the plants in December and none of the fountains were operating. It was however, quite crowded.

    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.

    I visited on Saturday. Took the red U1 line to Kagraner Platz then the 26 tram to Oberfeldgasse, Spargelfeldstrasse and venue right there. Download the map and just explore. Lots of animals and play areas for the kids. I was solo but just blown away by the beautiful plants and flowers and how well maintained everything was. The wedding area looked stunning, what a dream venue. I will definitely return on my next visit to Vienna.

    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.

    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.

    The Swiss Garden (Schweizergarten) is something of an extension of Belvedere, providing additional green and leisure space to the south. This city park area has a handful of monuments scattered throughout along with grass lawn space, scattered trees and couple small bodies of water along with paved footpaths and occasional park benches.

    It is a fair city park area much overshadowed by the tourist favourite, Belvedere Gardens just north. Potentially worth a few minutes to explore if you plan to visit Belvedere 21 Museum which is situated here in Schweizergarten.

    Walking from Lower Belvedere Palace towards Upper Belvedere Palace I checked out Schwarzenberg Garten and I must say I was really impressed .
    The garden area is lovely ,a little more unkempt that the beautiful Baroque Schloßgarten that separates the two Belvedere palaces ,there's a small artificial lake ,bench seating to take in the beauty of this garden and it's very peaceful indeed ,if you're planning a trip to the Belvedere Palaces Complex I highly recommend you check out Schwarzenberg Garten.

    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.

    Walking around Stadtpark is something I always enjoy doing on any holiday I take to this most beautiful of city's ,packed with statue's and monuments ,it's an oasis of calm amidst the hustle and bustle of the city ,a very cool aspect of this park is Clock Gärten.
    Clock Gärten is located in front of the beautiful Kursalon ,it's a flower display that's in the shape of a clock which gives this beautiful garden it's name ,very photogenic ,hats off to the skill of the gardeners who produced this great display,most definitely well worth checking out if you're in Stadtpark .
