Into The Green – Spring 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 colorful spring and the warm sun!

Türkenschanzpark is what many call the most beautiful park in the city. It has it all: small pathways, ponds, rolling hills and rare botanical plants

The two most significant recreational facilities in Vienna are Donauinsel and Prater. Danube Island is perfect for endless walks – with your dog – or BBQ sessions. To the Viennese, the more centrally located Prater is what Central Park is to the New Yorkers.

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

Setagaya Park, a quiet little Japanese garden (see above photo – can you spot the sunbathing turtles?) is a bit out of the way. The town twinning between Vienna’s 19th district and Tokyo’s suburb Setagaya has existed for many years. Come here to find inner peace.

For food, just down the street I suggest you find Minh, my trusted resource for Vietnamese food, try the delicious Bun Cha Gio!
