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.

Did this cruise today. One of the most boring river cruises I have ever done. Poor commentary & little to see. My wife thought it included going onto the Danube River however it doesn’t. Best thing about it was the air conditioning which was refreshing...More

Coming from an island surrounded by water, it is hard to fathom living in a landlocked country - which of course Austria is. That doesn't stop the locals make their own seaside - in the summer the canal is lined with bars and stretches of...More

We bumped into the graffiti walls while exploring Vienna on our first day. We’re back more than once, biking along and even adding the graffiti walls (it is legal here!) . Really cool break from imperial Vienna. Cool beer/small meal eateries popular with locals. Even...More

We were told the graffiti art along the banks of the Danube canal were one of a kind! Took a boat cruise and enjoyed the smooth sailing along the canal, with the graffitis in view in certain places along the canal banks. Informative commentary offered...More

It is a nice experience to take a boat and see the city from the water. You get to see some of the Hundertwasser's buildings as well.

An interesting, lively area with many terraces and restaurants. It is also a floating bridge that tourists can cross the Danube. The subway station is close by. Do not be missed if you come to Vienna.

The canal is the water way in Vienna that link Vienna to the Danube River. It is about 10 minute walks from the center of historic Stephen's Cathedral to the canal area. There are some restaurants and space for people to sit and relax near...More

Don’t waste your time on this cruise. It’s more of a river bus with little interesting views to see except industrial factories. Nothing like the Rhine river cruise where you could see quaint villages and castles.

It was very hot in Vienna when we were there, so we sought refuge in a ship cruising the canal. And we did not regret it, a little wind in the face, a cold beverage, and a nice view. We took a short trip, so...More

Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The
second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from
medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from
pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current
hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative
crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city center and
take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old
townhouses, churches, theaters, discount shops and
