Gardens in The Hofburg & Around

Spreading out between the Burgtheater and Heldenplatz, the Volksgarten (People’s Garden) is great for relaxing among dignified rose bushes and even more dignified statues. A monument to Empress Elisabeth is in the northeast corner, not far from the Temple of Theseus, an imitation of the one in Athens (commissioned by Napoleon), and the Volksgarten ClubDiskothek.
