Donauturm, Vienna
(4/5 based on 900+ 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.

  • The Danube Tower is about 160mt and with a fast elevator go up to 80 meters and you can admire a beautiful view over vienna, the surroundings and the Danube. At the top there are a restaurant and a bar with swivel seats you can look up to you so just be all 360 degrees panorama

  • 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.
