Volksgarten Gardens - Vienna


The Volksgarten, a UNESCO World Heritage site, attracts mainly Sisi fans, with its magnificent memorial to the Empress. The idea of the Volksgärten- or city gardens- was born in Germany at the end of the 18th century. They made gardens for relaxing and to help to educate the urban population about the German speaking world, and were financed by the rulers or the local community. There is woodland and meadows, as well as ponds, places to rest, memorials and pavilions. The Vienna Volksgarten was built between 1819 and 1823 on the old bastion square (Burgbastei), which was destroyed by the French in 1809. Aside from the Sisi memorial, you will find one to Franz Grillparzer and fountains by Viktor Tilgner. You should not miss a visit to the Theseustempel temple, the Volksgarten restaurant, which offers delicious meals, and for those with the energy to dance, the Tanzcafé is the ideal place to do it!
