The Volksgarten ("folks' park") is a public parc in the Innere Stadt, the First District of Vienna and part of the Hofburg.
It was built over the city fortifications destroyed by Napoleon. It was opened to the public in 1820.
The park is famous for its rose gardens, the Theseus temple (1819-1823) by Peter von Nobile and the monument for Empress Elisabeth of Austria-Hungary (Sissi) (1907) by Friedrich Ohmann. There are also statues of the poets Franz Grillparzer and Karl von Hasenauer, and for the sculptor Hans Bitterlich.
