Besides the green area, Augarten impresses with its rich cultural past as well. Since the nineteenth century, Augarten has become a popular place for cultural events. The morning concerts in Castle Augarten were legendary, and the first one was conducted by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart himself!
Schönbrunn Palace Garden
Undoubtedly, we couldn’t miss this one! The Palace Garden in Schönbrunn is inseparably connected with the Schönbrunn Palace and the Gloriette. Here you can easily spend the whole day simply walking and enjoying the beauty of nature. Peaceful despite the large number of visitors, the park stretches across more than a square kilometre.
