The Stadtpark (City Park) in Vienna, Austria is a large municipal park that extends from the Ringstraße in the Innere Stadt first district up to the Heumarkt (Hay Market) in the Landstraße third district. The park is divided in two sections by the Wienfluss (Vienna River), and has a total surface area of 65,000 square metres (28 acres). Scattered throughout the park are statues of famous Viennese artists, writers, and composers, including Hans Canon, Emil Jakob Schindler, Johann Strauss II, Franz Schubert, and Anton Bruckner. The opulent Kursalon building on Johannesgasse, with its broad terrace that reaches into the park, is the site of popular waltz concerts.
Even as early as in the Biedermeier period, the glacis before the Karolinenstadttor (Caroline City Gate) was a popular site of entertainment. During the demolition of the city walls and the creation of the Vienna Ringstraße in its place, the mayor at that time, Andreas Zelinka, promoted the project of creating a public park on the territory. The park was designed in the style of English gardens by the landscape painter Josef Selleny, while the plans were made by the city gardener Rudolf Siebeck. On 21 August 1862 the park was opened, becoming the first public park in Vienna.

Since this is a tourist place, I will write this in English. Stadtpark (City Park) is wonderfully rich in culture, relaxation and sometimes events (like the Wine in the Park Festival). Coming to Stadtpark was one of the places that made me fall in love with Vienna and stay here. It was and is so fun for me to hang out and lay around in the grass. The Skatepark and the playgrounds here is also amazing!

This for sure is one of the most beautiful parks in Vienna. It is clean and there are banks everywhere. You can find the occasional street musician there playing some sweet background music. You can also find plenty of coffee bikes for some hot or cold drinks. Great place to just relax amd enjoy the sun!

Nice place to sit enjoy your coffee and relax. Usually its busy on weekends and people do many various activities. Dogs are not allowed in this park but I have seen people walking their dogs in it. There is an area specially for dogs just close to the kanal.
