A very beautiful park, inaugurated in 1888 by Austrian emperor Franz Joseph. The park is situated at the location of and presumably named after a Turkish entrenchment ('Türken-Schanze') of the first Turkish siege on Vienna in 1529. Due to the contiguity to the University of Agriculture, the park also features a variety of botanic rarities from all continents.
