AUGARTEN, ou′gär-ten (Ger. Aue, meadow + Garten, garden). A park in Vienna, once noted for its musical associations. Mozart, in 1782, was instrumental in starting concerts there, and it has been the scene of many musical first nights. It was opened in 1775 by Joseph II., and is laid out in the old French style.
