This is a large, beautiful park in central Vienna. The rose garden is outstanding. There are plenty of benches to sit on and to enjoy the park. Great place to relax after being on one's feet walking around the city.

This garden is large and is located opposite the Austrian Parliament building.. Like most gardens and streets in Vienna it is well maintained. It is adjacent to the Hofburg so take a break here before visiting.

The garden is located between Rathaus and Hofburg palace so you can walk to the garden and take a break before visiting another place. We visit the garden in the first week of May and it is too early for roses to bloom.

Over-30s who still like to party might be interested in the excellent club night on Thursdays at the Volksgarten night club. Several rooms feature a range of music, and there's a nice grown-up vibe.

Saturday afternoon and there were number of people just lying in the grass having a picnic, relaxing. The bar at the Palmhaus was crowded too. We got a chance to see a group of dancers filming their promotion video, which was very pleasant to see.

Its a park in the middle of most of turists' attractions so if you get tired its a great place to stop by and relax a bit admiring amazing view of flowers and colors with the beautiful architecture in the background.

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
