Florarium at Hirschstetten Botanical Gardens

Vienna – a sea of flowers

Tell me where the flowers bloom … in the Hirschstetten Botanical Gardens, of course. All the plants that provide so much delight throughout the year in Vienna’s parks and gardens are expertly cultivated here. Allowing Vienna to present itself in fresh bloom in every season!

Hirschstetten Botanical Gardens

From a flower bed at the side of the road to a whole sea of flowers in a park - Vienna blooms in every corner. 360,000 spring flowers, 1.5 million summer flowers, 60,000 autumn flowers and 1 million flower bulbs. That's the proud sum of plants that are cultivated in the Hirschstetten Botanical Gardens every year. The facility - also known as the Florarium - is open from May to October for free.

Did you know that the first place in Europe to cultivate tulips was Vienna, even before the flower became a trademark of the Netherlands?

Stroll through the "Garden of Five Continents", take a seat in the Indian garden and enjoy the summer surrounded by hardy banana and palm trees, find the right path through the Liguster Maze and be spirited into the strange worlds of the Mexican, Japanese and Chinese gardens. The Palm House, with its exotic plants and animals, is also open in winter and offers a tropical, romantic atmosphere.

What's more

Wedding Garden, Indian and Mexican Garden as well as the Palm House can also be hired for weddings. Particularly nice is the Advent period at the Hirschstetten Botanical Gardens: A special kind of Christmas market enchants young and old every year.

Kagran School Gardens

The Kagran School Gardens are easy to reach on public transport, offer pure relaxation as well as the possibility to learn about garden design and gather tips for the garden at home. Impressive here are the many themed gardens, where you can follow the tracks of Old Masters, such as Monet, Goethe and Shakespeare. Right next door is the Austrian Horticulture Museum!

Tip: The "Green Holidays" are held throughout the summer from Monday to Wednesday (Kagran) and from Thursday to Sunday (Hirschstetten). These let you relax in the midst of the magnificent plants for free! Deck chairs are free as well!

Austrian Horticultural Museum

Are you interested in the history of gardening as well as flowers? The Austrian Horticulture Museum in the former "Kagran Orangery" in Vienna's 22nd district houses 30,000 historic exhibits - from tools to vehicles and from photographs to plans - the biggest collection of its kind in Austria. While you're here, learn more about the history of gardening and the art of floristry.  The attractive Art Nouveau building has an exhibition area of 500 m² and is definitely worth a visit.
