Several varieties of flowers with fountains and ponds. Gardens well cared for with several large old trees that are in the gardens providing shade on hot days. Nice stroll along various gardens including suculant garden near the entrance.

The Botanical Gaden of Vienna located next to Belvedere gardens in the 3rd district is part of the University of Vienna. It covers a huge area with more than 11.000 plants. It is such a nice walk!
