Donauinsel, Vienna

4.5
#8 of 42 in Outdoors in Vienna
Vienna's favorite recreational area, Donauinsel offers many outdoor activities and a vibrant nightlife. This narrow island stretches 21 km (13 mi) along a water channel, which has been turned in a swimming lake. A fine gravel beach protected by small offshore islands invites you to take a dip on a hot summer day, play volleyball, try surfing, or rent a boat. You can also hike, cycle, jog, or skate, making the most of the island's sprawling network of trails. The island also includes nudist beaches and a water playground for kids.

  • The Danube is a mythical and legendary River, its history makes inevitable the visit and one walk its coasts, cross the bridge and take this good option of taking contact with the River from the island. He should go and go with swans and boats. The truth is that the ride does not exceed the weight of history and is a little taste... but you were in the Danube. Well worth a little dress this visit with some other nearby tour like the Ferris wheel either study your history in detail if it is in the interest of the visitor. Must be borne in mind that don't take much time to explore the island; especially in autumn and winter. In the summer and if you need a relaxing can be an alternative. You have to go, look at it 20 minutes, photos and follow.

  • Is not one of the first places that you think when it comes to Vienna, but it's cute, it's a very long island, on which you can walk around and admire the Danube both right and left, on a sudden, very green and very well taken care of. It is worth to go for a walk and see it, it's not bad!

  • Went there for Europe's largest music festival with beautiful Vienna City just a short tube hop away. Brilliant venue, friendly and well structured. It's a narrow island but goes on for miles with stages to the left and right. It's a day and night attraction over a few days that's well worth a visit. Has to be said that, just like Vienna central, they manage to control the litter incredibly well. Family friendly, a wide variety of music, plenty of food and drink served.
  • Visiting here makes for a great day out, with good walks and easy access to both the international centre and the rest of the city.
  • Res Public since 1980 (?)
  • Great place for sunbathing and family recreation, picnic, free swimming.
  • Great place for swimming, chilling with the family
