The Donauturm (Danube Tower)

Above the clouds of Vienna

Welcome to a breathtaking trip to lofty heights above Vienna! My name is Leila and I work at the reception. Join me on a journey to this architectural marvel and discover the fascination that emanates from Donauturm.

The tower

The Danube Tower, an icon of the Austrian capital, rises majestically above the banks of the Danube and offers an incomparable view of the city and its surroundings. It was built for the Vienna International Garden Show in 1962-1964 and, with a height of 252 meters, is the highest observation tower in Austria and a landmark of Vienna. With its futuristic shapes and striking silhouette, it is not only an architectural masterpiece, but also a symbol of progress and modernity.

The Donaupark (The Danube Park)

The visit to the Danube Tower begins as soon as you enter the tower grounds, which are surrounded by a picturesque park landscape, the Danube Park. Here you can take a relaxing stroll or get some refreshment in one of the cozy cafes and restaurants before you make your way to the top. The real highlight of the visit, however, is undoubtedly the trip to the tower's observation deck. In just a few seconds, the glass elevator takes you to dizzying heights, where a breathtaking panoramic view of Vienna awaits you. From here you can admire the majestic towers of the old town, see the glittering waters of the Danube and even see as far as the green hills of the Vienna Woods.

The adrenaline

But the Danube Tower has more to offer than just a fantastic view. For those looking for adrenaline, there are a variety of activities on offer. Bungee jumping, abseiling along the tower, venturing onto the Skywalk, a glass walkway 150 meters high, or currently trying out the glass tower slide. These thrill attractions offer an unforgettable experience for brave visitors of all ages.

The cuisine

The Danube Tower also houses an elegant restaurant that slowly rotates on its own axis and offers guests a culinary journey through Austrian cuisine. Enjoy a delicious meal at lofty heights and let yourself be enchanted by the magical atmosphere of this unique place.

The conclusion

The Danube Tower is not just a viewing tower, but an experience that appeals to all the senses. From its impressive architecture to its breathtaking panoramic views, this tower offers an unparalleled opportunity to experience Vienna from a whole new perspective. So dare to climb and discover the beauty and magic of the Austrian capital above the clouds of the Danube Tower. From the hotel you can take the U1 directly to the “Alte Donau” station and then it is a lovely walk through the Danube Park.
Kind regards
