Danube Island

The Donauinsel (Danube Island) is a 21 km long, narrow island in central Vienna, lying between the Danube river and the parallel excavated channel Neue Donau ("New Danube"). Once made to save the city from possible floods, it is for most people now a fantastic recreation area within easy reach from the city. There are restaurants and bars, a beach and many points where you can go swimming, space for BBQs and so much space for walking, running, cycling, skateboarding picnicking or whatever else you like doing in your downtime. Although you are in the city, you feel miles away once you get to the water and have all this space in front of you. Love escaping to Donau Island every now and then!!
