Umlauf is a quintessential sculpture garden located in the heart of Austin. Just steps from Barton Springs in a unique part of downtown. The gardens are extremely beautiful and well kept. The sculptures by Charles Umlauf range from quirky and distorted to towering and delicate. They have several programs for residents and visitors to enjoy throughout the year, including hosted nights at the garden.

It's one of Austin's hidden gems. Great to spend a couple of hours and very close to the center of town.

Beautiful outdoor sculpture garden next to the Zilker park.

Largely featuring Umlauf's collection of classical sculptures with modern interpretations. The expression of human body and form is breathtaking, his sculptures also encompasses a wide variety of subjects, from mythical and religious connotations to subjects of family and love.

This beautiful sculpture garden features works by the late Charles Umlauf, Austin resident and UT art professor. Walk through its beautiful grounds before you head to Barton Springs or Zilker Park.

Beautiful little sculpture garden with a ton of interesting pieces and a lovely landscape. Bring OFF! as getting eaten alive by mosquitoes isn't unlikely!

SO INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL! I went with my grandmother on a very rainy day and there were only a few others there. Not too terribly expensive to get in, and totally worth it. I got many good pictures of the sculptures.

Moving collection of scultpures by 20th century American sculptor Charles Umlauf. Works range from spiritual to mythological to family themes and even some playful animals. Umlauf was influenced by Rodin and Bourdelle, among others, and worked in a variety of mediums. Indoor gallery space houses seasonally rotating exhibits. Garden is beautifully landscaped with a waterfall, lilly ponds, and is a lovely place to wander for an afternoon.
