Türkenschanzpark

Türkenschanzpark is a park complex of about 150 000m2, designed in the second half of the 19th century. It is located in the cottage quarter of the 18th district of Vienna (Währing), on the historic Türkenschanze, and extends over hilly terrain. Ponds, streams and waterfalls characterize the design.

The park offers park benches, children's playgrounds and basketball courts, a soccer field as well as a beach volleyball court, slackline and skating facilities, two ping-pong tables and a chess table, open meadow areas as well as a public toilet facility and two dog zones and several drinking fountains.

In total, there are about 6 500m2 of water areas as well as a floodplain landscape.
Besides the natural waters, Türkenschanzpark also features several drinking fountains as well as an ornamental fountain, the Yunus Emre Fountain. This is located at the corner of Feistmantelstraße and Dänenstraße.

The park is home to rare plant species, such as the Berg-Kuhschelle (blooming: April to May), as well as ornamental trees from China, Japan and North America.

The Paulinenwarte is also located on the grounds. The observation tower offers a sweeping view of the city and the Vienna Woods. Monuments located in the park are dedicated, among others, to the poet Adalbert Stifter, the composers Franz Marschner and Emmerich Kálmán, and the actor and director Leon Askin.
