We found an entrance opposite the cafe on the side of Belvedere Palace. Winding paths and labels on the many plants and trees made for a relaxing stroll. Didn't expect many flowers to be out but there were some, plus trees breaking out into blossom....More

The Botanical Gaden of Vienna located next to Belvedere gardens in the 3rd district is part of the University of Vienna. It covers a huge area with more than 11.000 plants. It is such a nice walk!

Lovely free garden with interesting plants. Runs from just off Rennweg to the top of the Belvedere Gardens. A hidden gem.

There are wonderful displays of many types of plants, trees and shrubs to wander through with plenty of shade if the sun is at its peak.

Very tranquil and less popular natural garden, just off to the side of the very formal Belvedere Palace Gardens. A quiet place to escape, enjoy and relax!

The University of Vienna Botanic Garden lies adjacent to the Belvedere Palace estate so one can visit both in the same day. Entry to the Gardens is free and it is well worth spending some time enjoying the walks and huge variety of plants here....More
