Lovely trip to the outskirts of Vienna to a magnificent Park. This venue is excellent. & affords super views over the city in a slowly revolving restaurant. I seriously recommend this visit again off the beaten track. Good value except for the coffee which at €3.90 is overpriced.

Arrived after the walk from the U1.....took about 10 minutes. Went to the cafe for lunch. Tables were pretty full but did manage to find a window seat. Service was very slow, took almost 30 min for our food. Meal was average. The views were however very good, as the restaurant slowly rotates , thus allowing panoramic views.

You should visit here! Coffee and cake in the clouds while the restaurant rotates (slowly) so you have a birds eye view of the whole city. Perfect.

Can't understand why this place isn't promoted much more. Ok it's a bit dated, but it was built in the 60's. We had the most amazing views despite the low cloud of people skating on the frozen Danube from the viewing level and the revolving restaurant. The views on a clear day must be spectacular, possibly being able to see... More

Visited on Jan 26, 2017 with my girlfriend. The views are lovely and that the tower moves is also very nice and creates a very warm and cosy ambiance. Upon entry we were given small pieces of bread with to share (nothing fancy, 4 pieces of bread in total). In the end this cost €3.20 per person so heads up... More

...if you want stunning views and landscape photo opportunities. We walked from the station (Vienna Intl Ctr) through the UN buildings to the park where this is located and it's a longer walk than some of the literature would have you believe. No particular problem for us but something to bear in mind for those less able. You can get... More

This is the right place, if you are looking for a great view of Vienna. The elevator is interesting, too. You go to the top (160 m) for just 30 seconds.

The views from the tower were amazing but restaurant staff were unfriendly and unhelpful. Cost is 7.90 euro per person but we were only there for 30 minutes. The restaurant curd not find a table for 2 for coffee at 10:45 as although lots of spaces the lady decided she was full. The cafe does not open until 11:00 but... More
