If you find yourself in the 18th district, this park is a very calm and charming place for a picnic. The surrounding neighborhood is very beautiful and the park itself is big enough to make you forget you are in a city, but small enough that you cannot get lost. If you are visiting Vienna for a short time, I... More

This is a beautiful place to take some time to relax or have a good walk. The park is very calming with the fountain and pond. If you want a meal, a cafe or a ice cream, its available in the park. Great for all, young and older alike.

During Christmas time there is a nice little Christmas market directly in der park. It's not so crowded like the ones in the City Center and the Prices are also more moderate. On the other Hand it's a rather small market and it takes some time to get there.

One of the largest parks in Vienna, Turkenschanz has something for everyone. We visit for the playgrounds, ping pong tables, restaurant, and (small) Christmas market. Others come to run, ride bikes and skateboards, go to the dog runs, walk the winding paths, have picnics, sunbathe, and sled in winter. It's lovely year round and easy to get to via public... More

Big beautiful park with several different playgrounds with different features: one is better for little kids, but also has loads for bigger kids to do, too. Another is more for the big kids and has a skate park. There are fountains and hills and benches and loads of different areas to lounge and play. Even has a super-delish restaurant in... More

In this park you will surely don't meet crowds of turists which is the first advantage of its. The second and more important is its beauty and variability. Simply you will walk along ponds, waterfalls, meadows, rocks, rows of flowers or sculptures all the time. You will find a a romatic place every hundred of steps. Though the park is... More

The Türkenschanzpark is Vienna's best park. In a city blessed with outstanding green spaces, the Türkenschanzpark is the pick of the bunch. It is located in the residential 18th district of Vienna so is off the radar of most visitors to Vienna. Fortunately for those of us in the know, there is more than enough space to enjoy this great... More

Compared to other parks in Vienna is smaller, a bit out of the usual tourist tracks but definitely much more organized for children with a lot of attractions. Nice restaurant inside the park

I wouldn't call this a huge park (it's quite small compared to the Prater, for example). But it's a bit farther away from the center area, which in turn means that you'll mostly find no tourists here, a lot of locals/students just chilling on the neat lawns or playing different games. If you visit on a sunny day when the... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Wahring
The 18th district is the most inconspicuous of the listed neighbourhoods. Where else can you still watch card players at a Viennese coffeehouse, or listen to authentic Viennese folk songs with a local audience? Like most respected Viennese neighborhoods, Währing has its own street market, Kutschkermarkt, where you can best feel its pulse. One of Währing’s loveliest outdoor destinations is the small garden palace and museum Geymüllerschlössel. The exquisite 19th century interior is spiced up by contemporary art installations curated by the Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art (MAK).
