There is hardly a more diversified and beautiful park in Vienna for the whole family than the Pötzleinsdorfer Schlosspark. Thus, the Pötzleinsdorfer Castle Park in Vienna is the perfect spot for a family excursion. It offers a playground and a petting zoo. The roots of Pötzleinsdorf castle lie in the 13th century. But only in 1801 the park was transformed into a much-admired English-style landscape garden. At that time, the Pötzleinsdorfer Schloss became a meeting place for illustrious Viennese society. The park was hit by bombs during World War II and reopened in June 1949. Since the 1980s there is an animal enclosure in the Pötzleinsdorfer castle park. In November 2013, the new, enlarged and modernized animal facility was opened. There are plenty of animals here: sheep, goats, turkeys, bantams, ducks and geese.
Self-catering guests can sit down on the large lawn for a picnic. The large castle park also invites you to a Sunday stroll. Comfortable paths lead through the forest, where you can see deer. The meadows in the park may not be entered. They serve as a forage for the numerous deer in the park. The playground in the Pötzleinsdorfer castle park has a lot to offer for children of all ages. For the little ones there is a shaded sandpit, seesaws, swings, a well to fetch water and a carousel. Larger children will enjoy the “waterfall”, a terraced landscape of sand, stones and water.
There are also many devices for climbing like a climbing wall. A beach volleyball court and two ball courts are also frequented by young people.
