This greenbelt, once the backyard of the Hofburg and now is really nothing special. This park is a big grassy field, surrounded by trees, and with sitting people on it. Most of them are office workers who are enjoying their break. The main highlight of...More

This is one of the smaller gardens/parks in Vienna. There's a Mozart statue in here too. There's seating areas and benches to take a break. It's not difficult to get to and nice for an afternoon stroll

Very peaceful area of town, good for a stroll, relaxing from more hectic activities. Some nice monuments, including the one to Mozart; you can even take a picture if you are patient enough to wait out the crowds taking selfies with Wolfgang.
