One of the amazing places in Vienna, you can rent a paddling boat, electrical boat or sailing boat if you have a sailing license with acceptable prices per hour, And explore the Danube river with its amazing view, I recommend it before sunset.

Alte Donau is a side arm of the river Danube - it is Vienna's recreation area next to the city center (only seven tube stations from Stephansplatz). Many restaurants and pubs are available. It is the right place for sports-addicts!

Very nice place for a walk. The whole trail is 17 km starting from the Wasserpark in Floridsdorf and it makes a whole round around the Alte Donau lake. The little garden houses are adorable! There are many places for rest and also, many restaurants....More

Whole area is quite relaxing, yet a couple of metro stops away from the city centre. Amazing. Quite a few lovely restaurants and great outdoors make this area quite good for relaxing evenings.

Vienna’s sixth district hosts high street shopping
heaven and pedestrian area Mariahilfer Strasse. The
weirdest local building is probably the city aquarium
Haus des Meeres, housed in one of Vienna’s six
remaining World War II defense towers, and topped with
a rooftop bar that offers stunning views over Vienna
and the center. One of the most historic sites in the
area is the passageway of 18th century Raimundhof with
