Donauturm, Vienna

(4/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
Take in a panoramic overview of the city from the 252 m (827 ft) tall Donauturm. Opened in 1964 during the preparation for the Viennese International Horticultural Show, this structure has become a part of the skyline. Use one of the two high-speed elevators to reach the observation deck at 150 m (490 ft). The glassed-in terrace shields the visitors from strong winds and bad weather conditions. Dine at one of the two revolving restaurants. The tower also features a bungee-jumping site. Be aware that during strong winds the elevators only travel at half speed. Plan to see Donauturm and other attractions that appeal to you using our Vienna holiday planner.

  • Dine over a 170-meter tower with a breathtaking view of Vienna. It was all very nice don't forget ever. Location very nice, typical Viennese cuisine, beautifully presented and quite good, accessible price, three-course menu € 37 excluding drinks, friendly staff. Only minus the elevator to go up 7.5 € per person, I think anyone who has booked table in the restaurant should not have to pay. Expected to only charge it stops on the lower floor where there is the bar, or at least to those who only panorama rooms.

  • If you go to Vienna to drink your coffee at the chateau with the wonderful view of the city on your plate ...

  • You should visit here! Coffee and cake in the clouds while the restaurant rotates (slowly) so you have a birds eye view of the whole city. Perfect.

  • Best Place to view the whole Vienna. the Wind was fabulous. Loved it .. Highly Recommended !!
  • Nice view from the top. Not very expensive, especially in combination with the Prater big wheel ticket. Worth visiting. The view is simply amazing.
  • Both the tower and the park were amazing, well worth the admission fee. We didn't try the cafe or restaurant, but the observation deck provides the best view of Vienna on the city.
  • Too crowdy! Way too expensive to dont get a place in the Cafe!
  • The observation deck scales dizzy heights and so it really is quite windy up there! The park at the foot of the tower is also really nice.
