Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web
Relax near the river in an oasis of calm in the middle of a bustling metropolis at Donauinsel. The island separates the Danube river from the excavated channel, New Danube. This 21.1 km (13.1 mi) long, but only 70–120 m (230–394 ft) wide strip of land offers many relaxing and recreational activities with its walking and running trails, cycling paths, and restaurants, cafes and barbeque areas. Take a dip in the clear river water, have a picnic or just sunbathe and enjoy the peace this patch of greenery provides, with swans swimming in the river and making you company.

In short, a pause of a few hours after binges in Vienna's museums

  • We go naturist for over 30 years on the Islands, beautiful and pleasant. For a few years only few people, no children so no noise.
