"The flower clock" in the City Park
The city park is a lovely, quietly place, and in English landscape style.
It was designed in the year 1862, during the construction of the Ring, and based on the plans of Josef Selleny and Rudolf Siebeck.
The park has a dimension of 65.303 square metres.
The entrance of the park is placed exactly in front of the hotel Meriot, on the Parkring.
The Vienna River flows through this lovely place, into a magical landscape.
Numerous monuments remind of celebrities of the Viennese music history.
The lovely flower pads are in summers, a real attraction, for the Viennese.
The miraculous avenues, the pond in the middle of the park, the flower clock, the pavilion, the small tower, but in the first point, the statue of the "King of the waltz", Johann Strauss, are some of the peculiarities of this garden.
