Opened to the public in 1775, this park was formerly the hunting ground of the imperial family. The Augarten Palace was built at the end of the 17th Century by emperor Joseph II in the style of J.B.Fischer von Erlach. It houses the Vienna China Manufactory Augarten. Another building within the palace complex is home to the Vienna Boys´ Choir. Not to be overlooked is the anti-aircraft artillery tower, a huge monument to World War II. In the summer months, the Augarten is visited by tourists and locals alike; all come to the open-air cinema, maybe enjoy a drink in a small tavern, or just relax with the family either in the wide green of the park or in the recreation grounds.
