Lush Flora & Fauna

To truly get away from the city and immerse yourself in nature for a few hours, look no further than this vast botanical garden directly adjacent to the Belvedere Palace grounds. Founded in 1754 by Maria Theresia, the gardens take up almost 20 acres of land and house almost 12,000 species of plants. There are lots of great walking paths, greenhouses and gardens where you can get a nice breath of fresh air, and even learn a thing or two about some of the unique fauna. Since it’s run by the University of Vienna, some areas are closed for private use, but the university also hosts public lessons on some of the most popular plants from time to time.
