  • Don't (as some reviewers have done) confuse the Alpine Garden with the nearby University Botanical Garden. Trip Advisor's editors should be more careful about this apparent confusion. The Alpine...  more »

  • Been here in late August. One of the loveliest Botanical Gardens I've visited; of course not as large as the one in Berlin for example, but packed with great species from each important or common family. I appreciated how they managed to include several species of the same genus (that you could actually see) and not simply have only one representative plant for each genus. You could really tell that they put a lot of work, both academically/scientifically and aesthetically/ for someone who is not initiated in Botany and simply enjoys the views and the wonderful flowers. Apart from a taxonomic arrangement of the families they also have plants grouped geographically, like in most Botanical Gardens, but it really is a treat for the eye to look at. They have larger/older/more exotic trees in the coniferous section and also a great bamboo forest. Very suitable for families with children. One of the greatest features (and what sets it apart from the other gardens) is the online game you can play while in here, with little quests and curiosities about several species. Enjoyed how they managed to tell a story or immerse practically anyone in the Botanical sciences. Best of: it's free for anyone to visit. It would be a pity not to come here while in Vienna, it is a small but captivating world of beautiful plants that does not take more than 1-2 hours to visit.
  • It is a charming place with a variety of trees, shrubs, flowers, grasses and anything in between. A quiet place perfect for a retreat and quiet contemplation - and it ìs free! I spent an enchanted 1.5 hours there in the middle of a busy business trip.
