Green Vienna

There are around 1,000 parks in Vienna with an area of 13 square kilometers. Today I invite you to get to know my personal favorite parks and I will write in a few words what makes them so special.

The Augarten

Due to its proximity to the hotel, the Augarten is simply perfect for a walk. It is a beautiful baroque complex and in mid-March the small coffee houses open again and you can enjoy the first rays of sunshine in the countryside.

The Pötzleinsdorfer Schlosspark

Sorry, the photo takes up a lot of space, but at least the 2 giant sequoia trees are over 30 meters high! Getting to the Pötzleinsdorfer Schlosspark by public transport takes around 40 minutes from the hotel. You're really amazed when you see such big trees in Vienna. There is a children's playground and a small animal enclosure. For us, a stop at the Steirerstöckl restaurant is always something nice and you can relax with good food and great drinks.

The Burggarten

A visit to the Burggarten can of course be perfectly combined with a walk through the city. Pass the Albertina and then go through the gate into the park. You can stop off at the Palmenhaus brasserie and then take a look at the butterfly house next door. With a bit of luck, you can see the riders with their Lipizzaners there as they ride out of the Spanish Riding School and the horses graze peacefully in the garden. Paddocks have also been built where you can see the beautiful stallions (between April and October!)

The Setagaya Park in Döbling

My absolute favorite park in spring! It's even noted on my calender to visit Setagaya Park in spring and I check almost every day to see whether the trees are already starting to bloom. Sometimes I go there even a few times in spring to see the cherry trees and the magnolias blooming. The story behind this park, which is designed in Japanese style: There is a friendship and cultural agreement between the Döbling district of Vienna and the Setagaya district of Tokyo. This gave rise to the idea of building a Japanese garden in Döbling. Setagaya Park was planned by Japanese garden designer Ken Nakajima in the early 1990s.

Prater & Schönbrunn & Stadtpark & Volksgarten

I hope you enjoy exploring the many parks in Vienna. Take a seat on one of the many park benches, take time to take a break and enjoy our beautiful city.

Kind regards
