It is no exaggeration to say that the park is the soul of the urban greening of Vienna. You may can't find other cities like Vienna that have rich park green space resources and open to the public for free.

You have a variety of park culture options here. From the Austrian royal scenery of Schönbrunn Palace Park to the French romantic style of Augarten, and the endless wilderness of Prater Forest Park, you can enjoy various theme parks. Today we will take a look at the ancient "civilian" choice-Vienna Volksgarten.

Volksgarten is located beside the Vienna National Parliament and was part of the fortifications of this ancient city. At the beginning of the 19th century, it was briefly used as a place for noble leisure and entertainment. In 1825, it became the first royal park to be opened for "civilians" and was officially renamed "Volksgarten".

At present, it enjoys a high reputation among tourists because it provides many conveniences for young people and tourists. The monument dedicated to Princess Sissi in the garden is a must-visit for tourists. In addition, the statue of Franz Grillparzer, known as the Austrian national poet, located at the southern end of the park has become a pilgrimage site for literary youth all over the world. The Franz Grillparzer statue is filled with flowers brought by pilgrims all year round. In the warm season, you can also enjoy countless bright roses along the sidewalks on both sides of the statue.

Another highlight is the Temple of Theseus in the middle of the park. This is a small replica of the Temple of Athens, which shows that ancient Greece is worthy of the birthplace of European civilization. This solemn ancient Greek style is in stark contrast with the tender and affectionate Viennese style around it, and one cannot help but sigh the unique beauty produced by the collision between various civilizations.

In this hot summer, on your busy journey, take a short break on the bench in Volksgarten and feel the eternal tranquility of the city.
