Augarten
Vienna’s Augarten is a public park in Leopoldstadt, home to a former Imperial palace of the same name and several other buildings of note. The grounds themselves cover 52.2 hectares and are Baroque in design, remodeled from previous gardens in the early 18th century for the ever-acquisitive Habsburg Emperor Joseph II. The court architect Isidore Canevale was responsible for planting hundreds of trees that now provide the shady pathways as well as the layout out the formal flowerbeds. Facilities for visiting families in the gardens today include paddling pools, sports fields and a couple of restaurants, including Décor, rather fabulously sited in a former Nazi anti-aircraft bunker. 

Other attractions in Augarten include the spectacular Baroque palace, now the winter home of the world-famous Vienna Boys Choir; a contemporary art gallery that is an outpost of the Belvedere; a film archive; and a Jewish study center. The star attraction of the park, however, is the Augarten Porcelain Museum, housed in a wing of a factory founded in 1718 and still going strong today. Exhibits include elaborate and historic pieces commissioned by the Imperial Family alongside more contemporary figures in Art Nouveau and Art Deco styles.

The Story of Jewish Vienna, Private Walking Tour

The Story of Jewish Vienna, Private Walking Tour

Vienna’s relationship with its Jewish people is one of the most important yet least shared stories. Getting an insight into what happened here allows for a greater understanding of the big shape shifting conflicts of the last centuries. “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” This famous saying by Spanish philosopher Santayana is more relevant now than ever. We Guide wish to take you on an enlightening journey through a side of Vienna that definitely deserves more attention.
