Even the gardens of Vienna are historical as the structures are! Located in the university of Vienna, this Botanical Garden dates back to 1754 when Empress Maria Theresa established the Hortus Botanicus Vindobonensis along with renowned botanist Nikolaus Von Jacquin. In conjunction to this garden, an institute of Botany opened up in 1905, however, both of these (the garden and the institute) were severely bombed during the Second World War. Later restored, this garden today houses more than 11,500 species of plants, including well-documented tropical plants.

Botanical Garden Of The University Of Vienna, Vienna Reviews - Write a Review

  • It is free and beautiful, what do you want more? ;) Great for a walk with the family or a morning run. Pay attention to the different closing times during the year!

  • Wonderful place for walks, jogging and relaxing. Also very good place for children. Here there is a possibility to organize children birthday party.

  • It's a very beautiful garden and the fact that it's free entry is great. I would've appreciated if there was more information about the plants and maybe the names in other languages other than German.

  • Tranquil walks down shady paths with the warm smell of pine trees. Lovely.

  • If you're familiar with botanical gardens in the UK, then this one is probably going to disappoint. Ok, the plants and trees have identifying labels, but there isn't a wealth of interesting plant varieties and neither is there a spectacular floral display (in April I'd expect some well-thought-out spring beds, rather than a few tulips pushing through the grass). It is much more like a municipal park - and as such it makes for a very pleasant stroll and entry is free. Go and visit on a warm day, but don't expect Kew Gardens.
