Beautiful city inhabited by sad people... Great architecture, great museums...but don't expect the people to be receptive to your innocent jokes.. Seems like each one has it's own circle...where you are not welcome... Too bad...

The Danube island is the best place if you need contact with mother nature and if you want to leave the city behind you. The air is super clean, you can sunbath or swim in the river. Bring a bottle of wine or some beers,...More

Great for a riverbank stroll or run, picnic, lots of trees and birds and views. An escape from the bustle and tourist traps of the city.

The Donauinsel is a narrow island in the middle of the Danube river in Vienna. U-Bahn (U1) will stop directly on the island, and you can walk across the bridge. Even in the winter time, it is still beautiful to see.

If you're a serious runner and looking for a great place to get your training runs in, Donauinsel is absolutely perfect. The perimeter of the island is 26.2 miles, is flat, has water fountains, and toilets (bring change). It's easily accessible by public transit. There...More

This place houses The Hope of the World church and is of Roman Catholic denomination. The church is located next to the Vienna International Centre and its architect is Heinz Tesar. A great reason to venture further than the city centre.

The city beach is worth a visit. Supply your own drinks/picnic from the supermarket, bring a bathing costume and a towel and head down for a river swim and views of the prater.

Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The
second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from
medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from
pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current
hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative
crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city centre and
take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old
townhouses, churches, theatres, discount shops and

The nudist part is on the southern end of Donauinsel! Best way to get there: U1 station DONAUINSEL and then either walking (around 35 minutes) or faster on the bike
