Donauinsel, Vienna

4.6
#9 of 43 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.

  • You need to relax not much in Vienna, or athletic press. Best you go with the U-1 on the Danube Island. Because anything is possible and the leisure can be lived here very well. There are not very many cities that offer such an offer as one here finds that on the Danube Island.

Where to stay in Vienna

As a former imperial capital, Vienna is full of lavish hotels reminiscent of the city’s royal past. If you’re traveling on a budget, it’s not hard to find hotels for a more affordable price. Consider staying in the Innere Stadt, or First District, if you only have a short time in town, as you’ll be within easy walking distance to many of the city’s main tourist attractions. Outside of the central core, Leopoldstadt, or Second District, lines the Danube and offers peaceful walks through tree-lined paths. For shopaholics, Mariahilf, or Sixth District, is a central neighborhood with busy shopping streets and lively markets.
