Danube Tower (Donauturm) Tours

Vienna’s Danube Tower, also known as Donauturm, is the tallest structure in Austria at more than 250 meters high. Opened in 1964, it stands on the north bank of the Danube River in Vienna’s Donaustadt district and was built in preparation for the Viennese International Horticulture Show the same year. One of the 75 tallest buildings in the world, the tower features an observation deck at 150 meters high, a rotating café at 160 meters up and a rotating restaurant at 170 meters up. The restaurant offers Austrian cuisine and wine and the café serves homemade pastries. The observation deck is an open-air platform, while the restaurant and café are behind glass panes. During bad weather or high winds, visitors may still visit the tower, but may only be able to access the inside sections.

Two high speed elevators whisk 14 passengers each up to the observation deck in just 35 seconds. Once on top, visitors enjoy magnificent views around the old city, Danube Park and the Vienna Woods. For the thrill-seekers, there is also a bungee jumping platform, used only in the summer months.

Insider Tip: On Saturdays and Sundays, take in the specialty brunch package from 11am-2pm for 34.50€ for the buffet.

Practical Info

The Danube Tower can be reached by taking the underground line 1 to Kaisermuhlen VIC or Alte Donau. It is also a stop on the blue line of the city’s hop-on, hop-off tour. Entry to the tower is free with the Vienna Pass or Niederosterreich-CARD.
