Into The Green – Relax in the city!

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.

Stadtpark is another big garden with not only the tourist attracting statue of Johann Strauss but also the city’s biggest Pokémon Go magnet it seems and a scenic pond.

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.
