This offshoot of the Danube River flows through the city just north of the downtown area and, with paved pathways lining its banks, makes for a pleasant stroll.

Take a walk by the canal and you'll see different Vienna from that which is less than kilometer away. You'll see trendy and hip places, you'll see graffiti and many young people basking in the sun. Not sure I like this Vienna as much as...More

Only the walk nearby eating joint market is worth in case you are not doing cruise from this place or bike tour

The Donau Kanal lies just on the limit of the Vienna city centre. It is NOT the Donau but a canal, and the immediate surroundings would benefit from renovation.

The street art on the banks of Donau in the middle of Vienna is a slightly more polite little brother to Mauerpark in Berlin. It's a great contrast to all the posh old buildings in Innerstadt. You can take a walk - or run -...More

The canal is a trendy hub with pop up bars and cafes, plus lots of street art and artists! The area has a fresh bohemian vibe and is well worth a look or an early evening stroll!

Don't bother. Yes you can sit in a deck chair in a fake beach but you will be looking at the terrible toe planning decisions made by Viennese planners. Concrete , high rise towers and graffiti. Don't expect the blue Danube . Dreadful compared to...More

Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The
second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from
medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from
pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current
hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative
crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city centre and
take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old
townhouses, churches, theatres, discount shops and
