About
This offshoot of the Danube River flows through the city just north of the downtown area and, with paved pathways lining its banks, makes for a pleasant stroll.

We went there on a rainy day so it was not pretty in general. It was kind of nice on the inner island side. But the buildings on the city side made the river look worse. Maybe it is better to go to countryside to enjoy the river.

The shores of the canal have a paved pathway for pedestrian and bicycle traffic. We walked down the path to enjoy the local sites and to get away from the more touristy and noisy areas.

On a sunny day it us great to walk the banks of the danube channels and just sit or relax, normaly you would have lots of places open for a drink or a bite to eat but due to covid that is closed. This is a nice small bridge called marienbrucke with a statue on it and the banks below close to schwedenplatz

Standing here, one gets a whiff of putrid smell. Garbage floating is completely unacceptable. But nice view.

Vienna's Danube Canal area is a great place to walk, run, bike, cross-country ski, or just to sit and contemplate the passing water. It's uncrowded and clean, at least in the winter.

Sadly, it seems that graffiti is more than just permitted; it's encouraged. I understand the argument for graffiti as a vernacular, urban art form. The problem is, most of what you see along the canal falls into one or more of the following categories: someone's "street" name in line lettering, someone's "street" name in block or bubble lettering, angry political commentary, or something doing something unprintable with some other thing (including, creatively enough, a turtle by its own shell).

Not all "art" is worth looking at, is the point, and the graffiti along Vienna's Danube Canal overwhelms what would otherwise be a peaceful and charming public space.

It was the first landmark we saw in Vienna: I was surprised as I didn't expect a place like that. It's very cool, plenty of bars and some of them have beach chairs. You can enjoy a beer or a walk among graffitis. Even at night it's colorful due to the lights. So Vienna revealed us its modern side. Stunning city.

We walked to the Danube canal from the centre of Vienna and were disappointed to see so much graffiti on the banks. Having just come from the lovely blue Danube in Budapest (and the river cruises there) we just didn't find it attractive enough - a shame really. Probably appeals more to the youngsters.

Despite the warnings from some Tripadvisor contributors that the canal area can be a bit seedy we did go along and look for ourselves. Sadly, the part we visited adjacent to the Augartenbrucke was much as reported - lots of graffiti and a general run down appearance. We are both in our 60s and it really did not appeal to us at all; however, the bars and terraces were very busy with younger folk to whom I guess it was full of character and life!
