In the summertime I regard Burggarten as one of my personal little oases, my summer resort. Situated right in the middle of the city between Hofburg and Albertina it´s the perfect place to lie in the gras or enjoy a coffee at Palmenhaus and forget everything.
Laid out around 1821 it used to be the private garden of the royal family until it was opened for the public in 1919. And right now I have to share Burggarten with some very special guests. While the Lipizzaner enjoy their holiday at Piber, their little foals are having fun in Vienna.
