If you like roses this is your heaven in spring - many hundreds of varieties! The gardens are magnificent during winter too. There's a delighfully restored Roman building and an historic toilet. Lots of seating so you can watch the world go by.

This is such a calm and beautiful green space that you wouldn't expect to find it in the middle of such a bustling city. The rose garden is particularly pretty and the grass immaculately manicured. There are plenty of seats, some nice fountains, and a lovely replica of a classical Greek temple.

This is an extremely beautiful manicured public garden. I was walking towards the Imperial Palace when I thought of taking a path through the garden to reach Hofburg palace. It is very quiet and extremely well maintained. It is a nice place to just sit down and enjoy the calmness of garden in comparison to the number of people right... More

The Volksgarten in Vienna is beautiful, in the middle of such a bustling city with trams, buses and cars flying past it is a quiet and restful place. The roses, still in bloom and the green lawns and the fountains provide a very restful place just to sit and reflect.

I was taking a shortcut through the gardens but when I saw all the thousands of roses in bloom...I had to take time to "smell the roses." Absolutely stunning!

Passed these gardens a few days before finding the entrance there is one opposite the Houses of Parliment. Nice green space with beautiful gardens to walk around and lots of seating.

I visited Volksgarten on a Sunday morning in August. The weather was warm and sunny and the flowers were beautiful. Everything was perfectly manicured. Very relaxing.

We had intended to only use Volksgarten as a cut through to Albertina Platz but it was so pretty and inviting we ended up spending around 45 minutes there - walking around the pathways and pausing to admire the autumn colours of the trees in the morning sunshine. The rose garden is particularly touching with each rose tree being dedicated... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
