I went with some friends with the metro to a station called Alte Donau, very near to the station we went to buy tickets to enter - I dont recall the actual price but defiantly between 2-6 Euros/Person-. We had so much fun you swim and some geese also swim you could take pictures and there is a restaurant to eat and if you want you could rent small boats. I highly recommend a day there.

My friend and I visited this beach in Vienna when it was 32 C. The water was perfect: not very warm but not freezing either. There are some great docks for jumping and diving off of. There is also a separate dock for lounging. The 'beach' part is on the grass with tons of shade from the willow trees. It is truly excellent on a hot day. Entry is around €5 depending on the time of day.

I was in vienna over in july and we hit exceptionally hot weather in the 30ies and my friends - who live in vienna - took me to the strandbad in alte donau.
This was one of the nicest experiences I have had - I loved the idea of swimming in the Danube and sunbathing on the banks - the place was immaculately kept they even had boats cleaning the area we were swimming at. There were a couple of swimming pools on the premises as well which was fantastic - there was even warm water to shower in - I waxed lyrical about it - a great place in a great town and I shall certainly be visiting there again. The facilities are too numerous to list here but there is even a restaurant and even a 'nudist' area - the whole experience was great and quite central to boot. It was also very reasonably priced

A beautiful spot on the Danube. There are a couple of swimming pools for those that don't fancy swimming in the river but it's a well maintained area so swimming in the river is easy (there's a few jetties and one has stairs). There's a couple of places to eat and drink, places to store baggage and get changed/showered etc. On a hot day this is the ideal place to come to, sunbathing and taking a dip in the cool waters with a friendly atmosphere (there were lots of families there with several generations enjoying the facilities). The water is clear enough for you to easily spot the many carp and other fish which swim near the reeds on the opposite side of the wooden jetty and they can be fed from that platform.

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.
