Here’s where you can slow things down, get away from all the bustling activity in the streets and take a deep breath. Enjoy the fall! 😉
Türkenschanzpark is what many call the most beautiful park in the city. It has it all: ponds, rolling hills and rare botanical plants.
The two biggest recreational facilities in Vienna are Donauinsel and Prater. Danube Island is perfect for endless walks – with your dog – or BBQ sessions. Prater, more centrally located, is to Viennese what Central Park is to New Yorkers.
Setagaya Park, a quiet little Japanese garden (see above picture) is a bit out of the way. The town twinning between Vienna’s 19th district and Tokyo’s suburb Setagaya exists now for many years. Come here to find inner peace – until October 31st, which is when its doors close for the winter months.
For food just down the street I suggest you find Minh, my trusted resource for decent Vietnamese food, and try the delicious Bun Cha Gio.
