Vorgartenstraße is a Metro station on the U1 Line of the Vienna U-Bahn.[1] It is located in the Leopoldstadt District. The station was first opened to the public on September 3rd 1982. Its name derives from the adjacent road "Vorgartenstraße" (literal translation: "Front-Yard-Street"), which had been named that way in 1903 due to its, at the time, relatively unusual high number of residences containing a Front yard.
