Tulln Gardens is the first sustainable garden exhibition in Europe and one of Lower Austria’s most popular attractions. Each year visitors get to experience different model gardens, a 30-metre high treetop pathway and the biggest adventure and nature play area in Lower Austria. The garden exhibition offers gardeners lots of new ideas and it’s an excursion destination for those interested in nature, extending across 10 hectares.
The Tulln Gardens has plenty of space for children to play. The attraction with its extensive hiking trails has been designed with families in mind. In Lower Austria’s largest nature adventure playground, children can live out their fantasy adventures and be a fearless pirate captain for a day. A weekly children’s programme and children’s birthday is offered.
No peat, mineral fertilisers or pesticides are used in the 60 model gardens. Free guided tours through the garden are offered every day at 10.30 am. Sit down on the large terrace by the water-lily pond and water fountains and enjoy the hourly water games with music. Or rent a boat in the water park and explore the Danube wetlands with a paddle in your hand on 5 km waterways including species-rich natural riparian and a picnic site.
