Volksgarten or People’s garden is a public park in the Hofburg palace complex in downtown Vienna.

It was built in 1821 over the city fortifications destroyed by Napoleon in 1809, and open to the public in 1823.

In the center of the park you can see the neoclassical Theseus temple, completed in 1821.

The park is famous for its beautiful rose gardens as well as its fountains – Triton and Nymph and the Volksgarten Fountain, and monuments to empress Elisabeth and Franz Grillparzer.

Fun fact: The Cortisches coffee house was built between 1820 and 1823. Austrian Romantic composers Johann Strauss I and Joseph Lanner performed here. On 10 March 1867, Johann Strauss II conducted the first performance of his Donauwalzer.
