Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    After the Schonbrun Palace Tour we visited the gardens located at the rear.

    Entry is free however attractions such as Privy Garden, the Orangery Garden , Maze Zoo, Palm House and the Desert House require tickets.

    The gardens are manicured and spectacular with water features and lots of seating areas for you to relax and enjoy the view.

    Park surrounded by Hofburg from one side, Albertina from other. Many other attractions, mostly architectural perks are in walking distance. When we were there, there was farmers market. Great place to sit on grass, enjoy nice weather and feel few centuries back. Great to see in good weather

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The garden looks a little tired. There are bench seats in the shade and a pond with a water feature. Lawns are extensive. It is close to the main railway station but most of what is going for it is what is nearby.
