Out in the Country

A city trip only consists of museums, shops, pedestrian zones and lots of action? Here in Vienna, there are many green oases where you can enjoy some peace and nature. Discover five places in and around Vienna where you'll forget you're on holiday in Austria's capital. 



Peace, nature, a bit of art and Viennese specialities - you can find it all in the beautiful Schweizergarten all year round. This city park is one of the oldest in Vienna and certainly one of the most beautiful. The meadows invite you to linger and the restaurant Klein Steiermark offers refreshments and culinary delights. As well as ponds and exotic plants, the park has playgrounds where children can run and play. And if you fancy a bit of art, you can visit Belvedere 21, Vienna's museum of contemporary art, which has changing exhibitions.

The beautiful Burggarten is located right in the city centre and has been one of Vienna's most popular city parks for over a hundred years. The public garden is always well maintained and invites you to linger in the sun, go jogging or just enjoy some time out. You can also visit the Butterfly and Palm House. It is easy to forget that you are in the centre of Vienna.

Setagaya Park

Cherry blossoms, waterfalls, tea houses - are we in Japan? No. You can find all this in Setagaya Park. Soak up the Far Eastern atmosphere, discover Japanese plants and rock gardens and just enjoy the moment. The Japanese park is particularly popular during the cherry blossom season, but Setagaya Park is also the ideal place for a green break in Vienna at other times, from the beginning of April to the end of October.
Address: Hohe Warte 8, 1190 Vienna
