The Volksgarten was travelled through whilst on our way to the naschmarkt. It is a very formal park and austere. We neither wanted to hang around the park. It’s not the kind of park to play frisbee in.

During the roses blossom period it's a paradise. Multiple colors, kinds, sizes of roses... and fresh air filled with aroma of roses. There are many benches to sit on. It's also touching to read all personal messages/dedications on each rose bush from those who funded...More

The People’s garden is next to Hofburg. Plenty of benches to sit on, even in December it was nice to rest from a long day sightseeing. There were lots of rose bushes, although covered from the front I can imagine provide a lovely summer garden.

We passed through the Volksgarten when walking to the imperial palaces. Lovely manicured gardens- empty in December but would be lovely in the summer time.

Great park for a gentle stroll around the park. Nicely kept (as is all of central Vienna), marked paths too.
