What illuminates the soul of this city?

Slow, majestic, and cozy – that’s Vienna. Three features also found at Augarten, Vienna’s second largest park. Despite its relatively central location, Augarten seems almost silent and peaceful. Even at weekends, when the park gets crowded, you can find your own, undiscovered spot between the trees. At the same time, Augarten highlights Vienna’s rich diversity: Here, you can spot a slackline next to a stroller or come across a kid playing soccer near an elderly couple. The Viennese love the park for its laid-back atmosphere; they come here to read or chat and enjoy a few glasses of spritzer. Augarten is the green lung that allows Vienna’s soul to bloom.
