  • Here you are in the city and yet in the middle of nature. Due to the fact that no dogs are allowed here, it is also a nice place to collect herbs, especially around this time the wild garlic.

  • Directly accessible by tram 41. Size about 350,000 m2. The castle of Pötzleinsdorf no longer exists. The quiet park attracts with petting zoo, children's playgrounds but also hidden angles that tell of the past. In the first decades of the nineteenth century, it was a popular meeting place and summer getaway for the Viennese upper class. After the bankruptcy of the Geymüller bank in 1841, the entire property was sold and the owners changed on an ongoing basis. In the end, the Austrian-Hungarian furniture manufacturer Max Schmidt bought it and inherited it from the municipality of Vienna. It was founded by Phillipina of Herberstein, in 1779 it came into the hands of Johann Heinrich Geymüller and until 1935 was privately owned, deserted, orphaned. Shortly after the First World War, the well-known furniture manufacturer Max Schmidt acquired the park and inherited it from the municipality of Vienna. In 1935, the park was opened to the public. Numerous bomb damage destroyed a lot of cultural property. When Mayor Körner reopened in June 1949, few remaining historical elements were found: A classicist-style lint house, a bathing grotto, a memorial stone to the poet Alxinger, and some stone sculptures that could no longer be attributed, as well as stone sculptures that were no longer relatable. Remembering the devastating ring theatre fire on 8.12.1881 the "Singing Quartet" by Friedrich Steger. The 4 sculptures were on the outside front, withstanding the ring theatre fire and another 100 years. Today they stand unmistakably in the park. You can walk from 1/2 hour to 2 hours or more. We decided to go over the Geroldstrasse and the Schafberg meadow to Neuwaldegg to go back to the city with the Bim.
