The Donauturm (Danube Tower), Vienna

© Donauturm Aussichtsturm- und Restaurantbetriebsgesellschaft m.b.H

The Donauturm  is a tower in Vienna, the tallest structure in Austria at 252 metres (827 ft), and is the 68th tallest tower in the world. Opening in April 1964, the tower is located near the north bank of the Danube River in the district of Donaustadt, in the Donaupark. The surrounding Danube Park is also a great place to take a break before or after a visit to the Donauturm (Danube Tower). Visitors to the viewing platform at 150 metres (492 feet) will get great sights over the whole Vienna, the Danube, and the hills surrounding the city. There is also a café and a revolving restaurant serving great food and Viennese pastries, so visitors can enjoy the taste of Vienna while enjoying the panorama (try and taste the well-known strudel: it is delicious).

Admission to the Donauturm is already included in the Vienna Pass city ticket package, so you can spare money here and combine it with admission to other top attractions in Vienna. This kind of ticket includes admission to Vienna’s most important attractions and museums as well as hop-on hop-off tours at a package price that is unbeatable when the program is packed. 

If you don’t want to take one of the two express lifts to the top but  you are looking for a little challenge and you have enough breath, you can also climb the 770 steps to the top on foot.

What is the Donauturm?

At over 820 feet tall, the Danube Tower (Donauturm) is the tallest structure in Vienna. From its observation deck you can enjoy panoramic views over the city. It also has a revolving restaurant.

When was the Donauturm built?

The Donauturm was constructed during 1962–1964, as designed by  the Austrian architect Hannes Lintl, in preparation for the Viennese International Horticultural Show 1964. After approximately 18 months of construction, under the supervision of Eberhard Födisch, the tower was officially opened on 16 April 1964 by Federal President Adolf Schärf. Since then, it has become a part of the Viennese skyline and has become a popular lookout point and landmarkt.
