Türkenschanzpark

The Türkenschanzpark is a 150,000 square meter park in the 18th district of Vienna. It is situated on a hilly terrain. In this territory the Turks had intruded themselves against the advancing relief army in 1683. In 1888 Emperor Franz Joseph I opened the park in the municipality of Währing, a suburb of Vienna. The Türkenschanzpark is very attractive because of its topography and because of its pond, waterfalls and fountains.
