A walk in the park
The Liechtenstein Museum is surrounded by a public park which was newly designed some years ago in the course of the reopening of the museum (2004). It remembers not only the original baroque garden but also pays tribute to the nineteenth-century landscape garden. On the other side of the park there is the "new" summer residence which was built for Prince Johann II of Liechtenstein and designed by Austrian architect Heinrich von Ferstel. It is not part of the museum, but serves as office building.
