A nice aquarium. Nicely arranged, with many things to see. If you have visited any average or big aquarium, then you won't see anything new. Quite expensive for what it offers

There is nothing at all, around the Flakturm that tells you anything about how it was buildt, who buildt it, how many used it during airraids and so it. As if it doesn´t exist. It is an impressive and indestructable building

Huge world war 2 remnants. Too well build to be destroyed (economically), one is converted to Aquarium. Berlin and Hamburg also have these.

Great time in Vienna again, Spent time relaxing in Augarten park amazed by the Flakturms a great piece of engineering and history. Also got to go inside one converted into an aquarium and mini zoo, super views from top. I recommend to anyone visiting Vienna.

While visiting Augarten Palace we noticed two large concrete structures in the distance in the adjoining park and decided to check. These two towers are remnants of the Second World War. Two large concrete towers built as mounts for German anti aircraft guns. The guns...More

Amazing climbing wall lesson with Christina. Couldn't believe I got the chance to do it. One of the coolest things I've ever done.

An important reason to visit the Augarten. Is a stark reminder of the devastation and dark times of WW2.

I stopped by both during a leisurely walk around the aurgarten. The cylindrical one ('amargasaurus") had less visible bombing damage than the square one.

remaining World War II defense towers, and topped with
a rooftop bar that offers stunning views over Vienna
and the centre. One of the most historic sites in the
area is the passageway of 18th century Raimundhof with
