The English Garden

Around 1830, the so-called “English Garden” was created between Wetzdorf Castle and the Heldenberg. Over the time the garden became overgrown and wild but has since been saved from ruin and restored with great detail.

In 2005, the English Garden was presented to the public for the first time. The English Garden’s winding paths invite you to take a leisurely stroll. In the peaceful atmosphere, you will find the grotto fountain and pool, the scenic mountain – called “Parnass”, Adlersruh, and Schneckenberg with the Biedermeier tea house located below. The garden skillfully combines the elements of earth, fire, air, and water.

The English Garden is ecologically maintained and is a show garden of a nature-friendly gardening.

Getting around within the excursion destination

From the handicapped Parking at the main cash desk, you can reach the cashier area via a ramp, where you can access the Classic Car Museum on the same level without any barriers.

The Cafe Heldenberg and the English Garden are accessible from this level via an elevator. The paths in the English Garden are nature trails and easily accessible except for the Schneckenberg.

The path to the Lipizzaner stables is difficult for people with limited mobility and wheelchairs. For this reason, we ask you to inform our staff. You can drive directly to the stables after consultation and our staff will pick you up there and accompany you to the meeting point for the tours.

The Radetzky Memorial is accessible except for the crypt. For the park, there is a barrier-free entrance. Please contact our staff. Access to the Neolithic village and Aigner’s Falkenhof consists exclusively of nature paths, which could present an obstacle for a visit. Visiting these two attractions is possible only with assistance, as the way leads up over a rising terrain.

Das Cafe Heldenberg und der Englische Garten sind von dieser Ebene aus über einen Lift erreichbar. Die Wege im Englischen Garten sind Naturwege und bis auf den Schneckenberg gut begehbar.

Der Fußweg zu den Lipizzaner Stallungen ist für Personen mit eingeschränkter Bewegung und mit Rollstuhl nur schwer begehbar. Aus diesem Grund bitten wir Sie, unserem Personal Bescheid zu geben. Sie können nach Rücksprache direkt zu den Stallungen zufahren, unser Personal holt Sie dort ab und begleitet Sie zu dem Treffpunkt der Führungen.

Die Radetzky Gedenkstätte ist bis auf die Gruft barrierefrei. Für die Parkanlage gibt es einen barrierefreien Eingang. Bitte wenden Sie sich an unsere Mitarbeiter. Der Zugang zum Neolithischen Dorf und zum Falkenhof Aigner besteht ausschließlich aus Naturwegen, die ein Hindernis für eine Besichtigung sein könnten. Der Besuch dieser beiden Attraktionen ist ausschließlich mit Assistenz möglich, da der Weg über ein ansteigendes Gelände führt.
