Garden at Glacis Beisl

Hidden guest gardens

Since they cannot be seen from the street, it is possible to walk right past some of Vienna's most beautiful guest gardens. Such as the one on Boltzmanngasse. Right behind the wall surrounding the French cultural institute hides the French restaurant Flein with its charming garden: on warm summer's evenings, guests dine here under old trees, between flowerbeds and herb beds. The Glacis Beisl is not very easy to find, because it is situated at the back of the MuseumsQuartier. Awaiting guests there are a cozy garden with chestnut trees, rambling plants, splashing fountains and Viennese cuisine.

The Amerlingbeisl on Spittelberg offers a Biedermeier idyll worth seeing: sit in the courtyard surrounded by old pergolas (courtyard gallery) and under a dense canopy of ivy. The Weinstube Josefstadt is a hidden green oasis offering wine tavern flair in the heart of the city. Virginia creeper, fountains, a Salettl pavilion and a good glass of wine set the right mood. 

The sophisticated Viennese cuisine is happily combined with the flair of the typical Viennese courtyard. A delight for the eyes is the garden of Schreiners Gastwirtschaft with its historic Salettl pavilion and a natural flower meadow, where marguerites bloom in spring. The garden of the Silberwirt is hidden in the Schlossquadrat, a complex of buildings from the Biedermeier period with a maze of small inner courtyards.

The courtyard of the Mill has an especially sophisticated design. The garden radiates the most magnificent colors, with décor and interior from Asia. The walls are painted in pink and orange, the plants are as varied as in a florist's shop. The menu is inspired by numerous cooking styles from around the globe. The lush greenery of the dining garden at Tian Bistro in the Kunst Haus Wien is also atmospheric. Vegetarian dishes are served in the ambience designed by Hundertwasser.

Hidden behind the façades of the hotel "Das Triest" is the Restaurant Collio with its idyllic garden. In the quiet inner courtyard, roughly 30-year-old olive trees and aromatic rosemary bushes exude a Mediterranean flair that suits the restaurant's Italian cuisine. A green oasis is also hidden behind the walls of Palais Coburg. Guests can experience the magic of the palace garden with its plane trees, magnolias and a babbling pond in front of a historic backdrop on a visit to the restaurant "Clementine im Glashaus". BBQs are also prepared here in the summer.

The inner courtyard of the Ringstrasse restaurant Salonplafond at MAK is purist in style. The dining garden is adjacent to large meadow - a rarity in the city. Guests can also make themselves comfortable here in the loungers arranged in the shade of a large tree.
