Outdoor Activity
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. Arrange your visit to Donauinsel and discover more family-friendly attractions in Vienna using our Vienna vacation route planner.
