“Nice piece of Vienna paradise on a hot 37C day”

Strandbad Alte Donau
Ranked #174 of 783 things to do in Vienna
Attraction details
Reviewed 15 August 2015 via mobile

Free entry if you go to the right place. From the Donau Alte station walk past the first 2 pools for 500m then enter the free park. Wade into the river, it's at least 30C! Lots of families in the park but on a weekday evening I found it not crowded. A few of the more energetic punters were doing park gymnastics too which was pretty impressive.

I visited Vienna during a heat wave and went off to Alte Donau to cool down and take a swim. Here you have three options: two lidos with entrance fee and a free one without catering etc.

This huge park and swimming area is a very nice place in the city limits of Vienna where the temperature is over 30 celcius,
then you must take the metro and direct yrself to this hidden paradise.Cool water will refresh you in any way.Strongly recommended to call at this place and enjoy yr time with a lot of available activities.

Quick recommendation: get a month ticket which is only the price of 4 single tickets if u plan to stay there a long time. And it gets u into public pools and swimming places including Alte Donau. ( u have to go in the second gate though which is quite farfrom the metro station alte donau)

If u want to cool down, go bathe in the Danube. The price is great, the place is great, the water is great. I personally don't like salty water so this was perfect. You just might find a lot of seaweed far out. oh and try to ask for a locker that's near where you entered cuz the place is huge. So i ended up with a locker 2000 something but from where i entered it was only locker 200 something.
