Welcome to the Wasserpark, a small oasis in Floridsdorf! My name is Clemens and I've been part of the team at the Austria Classic Hotel Wien since 2019. Since I live in Floridsdorf, Vienna's 21st district, on the other side of the Danube, I'm taking you to the Wasserpark today.
The easiest way to get to the park from the Hotel is by rapid transit (Schnellbahn). Drive from the "Praterstern" station to the "Floridsdorf" station and from there you can easily walk into the park. Of course, you can also easily reach the park by bike or by tram line 31 (Hubertusdamm station). It is best to start on the small bridge at Nordbahndamm. From there you have a good view of the Old Danube and the actual water park. If you feel like it, you can rent a boat from the Neuner boat rental and spend a relaxing day on the Old Danube.
Not far from the park you will find the Neue Donau, which was built between 1972 and 1987. It was built to prevent possible flooding in Vienna and this connection is perfect for long runs or a long walk. But back to the Wasserpark: at first glance it looks rather inconspicuous, but after a few meters you get a feeling of calm and serenity. The park is well known for its large water areas. Warm water from the Danube enters the park from Hubertusdamm, so it does not freeze completely in winter and numerous waterfowl can inhabit the park all year round. The natural spectacle of the birds takes place on a small island in the middle of the park. This area is also part of the bird sanctuary and attracts photographers from all over the world every day. Please do not feed the birds as they can take care of themselves.
The Floridsdorfer Wasserpark invites young and old to relax, for outdoor activities, family trips and romantic dates. What awaits you in terms of possibilities:
- Children's playground
- Motor skills park
- soccer cage
- basketball court
- Toboggan hill in winter
I wish you a relaxing time in my personal favorite park!
