Garden atmosphere in Vienna

Design and nature meet at the Salon Jardin - Vienna's special kind of garden salon. On May 20 to 22, 2016 many exhibitors present the trends of this year's gardening season in the wonderful park of Hetzendorf Palace. A mix of plants, furniture and accessories invites you to have a stroll and a picnic.
