Eckartsau Palace Garden

The palace grounds of Eckartsau are situated in the Danube floodplain east of Vienna. At the end of the 19th century, the former water palace was rebuilt into a summer and hunting palace for Archduke Franz Ferdinand. This was also the time when the landscape garden with its numerous botanical highlights was arranged. The new design was planned by the director of Vienna’s Imperial Gardens Anton Umlauft.

The special feature of this garden is the contrast between the artificially designed nature and the riparian forest surrounding it. Nearly the whole network of paths and some old specimens of trees of the original layout and design of the park have been preserved. Today, the palace accommodates the forest commission and is also a door to the Donauauen National Park.
