Summer days on the Old Danube

The Old Danube is a centrally located recreational paradise and a calm body of water that has something to offer for every taste and is also frequently visited by the Viennese.

Visitors are particularly enchanted by the romantic events in spring and summer. There are all sorts of possibilities for the perfect break and unforgettable moments on the water: A special Mother's Day surprise with arranged floral greeting, a romantic full-moon ride with Prosecco, or the popular Light Festival on the Old Danube should not be missed!. Make sure you reserve your boat in time at: www.alte-donau.info

About 500 row boats, electric and paddle boats are awaiting vacationers from around the world. The waters are also very popular among sailors; it was on the Old Danube, after all, that the first sailing regatta on Austrian waters took place. And at Stand-Up-Paddling, visitors can experience Vienna's waterways from a whole new perspective. More information at: www.supcenter-wien.at

Numerous outdoor pools, such as the famous "Gänsehäufel", have excellent water quality and tempt visitors to enjoy many pleasant hours at the beach. About forty restaurants - most located directly on the water - ensure carefree hours from April to October. Particularly idyllic are the restaurants Zur Alten Kaisermühle, La Crêperie, the Bootshaus, the Ufertaverne and Strandgasthaus Birner.

The Old Danube has a long tradition for the Viennese people. Learn more about Vienna’s Aquaculture.

Tip: A very special highlight are the "floating islands". They offer space for up to 8 people with a cuddly sofa, table and sun roof. You can find more information at www.meinewww.meine-insel.at
