Vienna is a green city, and besides its woods, meadows and fields, it boasts about 850 parks – and the best of them contain restaurants with fantastic views of the surrounding greenery. Enjoying an excellent meal accompanied by a glass of wine, or perhaps afternoon coffee and a slice of cake – the ideal way to take in the idyllic setting in one of Vienna’s parks.
The Palmenhaus in the Burggarten is a good place to start. This former greenhouse at the back of the Hofburg is one of the best examples of Austrian Art Nouveau steel and glass construction. Inside, guests sit surrounded by exotic plants as they enjoy delicious food or a cocktail at the bar. In summer the patio offers great views of the Burggarten – seats here are very popular.
