The Augarten, Vienna’s oldest baroque garden.
Colorful wooden facades from amusements parks long gone invite you to explore a special place, located opposite the concert hall of the Vienna Boy’s Choir.
Huge trees, bushes and small garden beds with flowers and vegetables are spread across the area. Get yourself a drink or a snack at the rustic snack bar, take a seat on one of the weathered chairs and soak in the atmosphere of this magical place.
Movies are shown in the evenings for several weeks in the summer, although, less seats are available this year due to social distancing.
A memorial plate under an almond tree remembers Fredric Morton, the Jewish Austrian author, who had to flee the Nazis. Among other things the Augarten houses a more upscale restaurant. When dining outside you cannot miss the huge Flak towers on the opposite side of the park, leftovers from WWII.
This big garden with its shaded paths is open to the public and a focal point of Vienna’s 2nd District.
