What we now know as the Austria Gardens was one of the zones to be used as plots in the estate. When the Park Güell was turned into a public park, however, the zone was used as a municipal plant nursery. This part of the precinct has a completely different look to the rest of the park, and it got its name through a donation of trees from Austria in 1977. The garden has good views, and from its center the two houses that were built in Eusebi Güell's time can be seen: the one belonging to lawyer Martí Trias i Domènech, planned by architect Juli Batllevell, and the estate show home, by Francesc Berenguer, which was finally acquired by the Gaudí family for their home, and which is now the Gaudí House Museum.
Park Güell has its own rate an schedule.
