Parks with a special offer

Vienna is famous for its numerous city center parks. But go a bit further afield and you can discover many other parks with even more to offer besides relaxation and green impressions.

If you have more time to spare, you really must pay a visit to the fabulous Kurpark Oberlaa, which was built for the Vienna International Garden Show in 1974. It offers everything you could wish for, from delightful sunbathing meadows (with loungers) to a petting zoo for children and a skate park for the sportier amongst us. The park's themed gardens are also popular: a flower maze, film location, love garden and many more create a unique atmosphere.

Around 35,000 roses await you in the Rosarium in the Danube Park in the 22nd district, the greenest district in Vienna, with 800,000 m² of green spaces. The Danube Park was opened in 1964 as part of the International Garden Show and today forms an entity with the New Danube Recreation Area. Here, there is the quaint Donauparkbahn railway, the idyllic Irisse and the Papstwiese at the foot of the Danube Tower, as well as lots of opportunities for sporting activities (free tennis courts, mini-golf course, chess). The Korea House of Culture has moved into the long-vacant, yet wonderful lake restaurant by the Iris Lake, which dates to the 1960s when the park was opened. It is open to everyone and additionally has a tea house and library to pass the time in. It also offers courses on calligraphy and many other subjects, and also organizes exhibitions and cookery courses.

Nature lovers will be delighted by the large leisure world of Türkenschanzpark - where the Turks barricaded themselves against the approaching relief army in 1683 - with its beach volleyball and skating facilities as well as attractive ponds, waterfalls and 400 different species of tree. Here, you can also climb the 88 steps to the 23 meter high Paulinenwarte. The panoramic platform opened by Emperor Franz Joseph I. in 1888 originally also served as a water tower. Today the Paulinenwarte presents a spectacular all-around view. It was named after the Princess Pauline Metternich who donated many exotic plants to the park.

The Schweizergarten is one of the oldest parks in Vienna. After the 1958 World Exposition in Brussels, the Austrian pavilion, a steel construction designed by the architect Karl Schwanzer, was relocated here and opened in 1962 as the Museum of the 20th century. In 2011, the imposing building celebrated its reopening as the 21er Haus. In the Schweizergarten, a more than 2-meter tall monument has acted since 2010 as a reminder of the Polish composer Frédérik Chopin and his time in Vienna. This diverse park also contains a freely accessible family pool as well as the cozy Viennese cuisine restaurant "Klein Steiermark".

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