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.
We opted for the small electric umbrellaed boat. No loud power boats or noisy watercraft.
There were many people swimming - jumping off boats, from the beaches on the island and from the banks of the lake. It was great to sit lakeside in the shade and have a late lunch at one of the many restaurants.
If you have time and the weather is good, go visit this area.

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.

Nice quiet place, perfect for long walk. We had nice time there. Escape to nature is always good plan. Danube is amazing!

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 is an absolutely beautiful river. Walking to the UN buildings in the morning, I always stopped to enjoy the beauty of the river and the swans majestically drifting along its banks. It creates a holiday "vibe" in the middle of Vienna's hustle and bustle.

The Alte Donau offers different possibility to enjoy the summer, having a walk around the river, taking a boat or just sunbathing. Especially during warmer days offers great opportunities, in a city like Vienna, but feeling in a completely different place.

You'll be surprise to see a lake instead of seeing the Donau itself . You may book aa day a boat and take a nice sunny day on the lake .

From the name it is the old Donau River, a bit complicated but interesting history about how Donau River affected the life of Vienna in the past and plenty of construction works had been performed to control the Donau for the wellbeing of its people. This water body now is actually cut and separated totally from the current Donau River. It is now used mainly as water sport and recreational purposes. It is a calm and controlled water body because separated from the effect of flash flood as no connection between this old river with the new river. Adjacent to the crossing railway bridge at Alte Donau Station as well as the Wagramer St Bridge are wharfs for boats and water recreation plays and also platforms on water with seats and benches to enjoy the sunshine along the summer hot days. Nice place when you like something related to river and water sports. Easy to visit these facilities when using Metro Line U1 and stop at Alte Donau Station and just walk, very close. Not free but you need to pay to use the facilities.
