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.
