Published Categorised as Austria, Travel No Comments on Türkenschan­zpark

About 15 minutes walk from the school I was work­ing at in Vienna, and next door to the Univer­sity of Life Sciences was Türkenschanz Park (Schanz is a kind of forti­fic­a­tion- there was a fort here at the point when the Haps­burgs and Otto­mans were at war).

One of the main attrac­tions of the park is the fake Renais­sance tower (built 1908). In the summer you can climb up it and see the view, but on a wet mid-week after­noon in Janu­ary it was shut.
