We loved the time spent in and on the river Donau. You can jump and swim, stop at a cafe, lie out in the sun and see lots of beautiful homes.

My favorite place in Vienna. If it happens to you to be there in the summer, don't miss this place, as it is so beautiful. I recommend renting a boat (cheap and easy to ride) and go around the lake, then choose one of the restaurants overlooking the area for a tasty meal and some beers. You will have a... More

Great restaurants with local food, nice water for swiming. There is a lot of docks where you can put your towel and go to swim.

Danube has a new and old part - the canal and the river itself is further out of Vienna. Boat rides are very expensive and it's difficult to know where to go apart from a boat ride. I don't think we saw the Cabal/river at its best. Do your research and decide what you want to do in advance.

This was the highlight of our visit. A hot sunny sunday, we rented a paddle boat and went swimming from it. No need to go to the paying beaches, where you have to queue to get in. So much better than a pool!

After 3 days of walking/sight seeing in temps in the mid 30's, the staff in our wonderful hotel (Kaiserhof Wein) suggested we take the nearby underground to this delightful lake. In 10 mins we were transported from a dusty, littered and crowded Vienna to a cool oasis where we could walk in the shade or rent a boat or canoe.... More

We went to Alte-Donau on a very hot day sunny day, and as a result was very busy, particularly around Strandbad Angelibad which is an enclosed area on the banks of the lake from where you can swim in the lake or use the onshore pool. Although we did not enter the Strandbad Angelibad it seemed very popular judging by... More

In a sunny day, just go to its Northern Part, known as WasserPark, find a spot on the grass-lawn and lie down, watch the Ducks, Geese, Swans and their Friends, having Fun in the Sun too... :-)) Ho, HEAVEN.
