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.

If you want a cruise along the Danube, then this is not for you. This cruise was along the canal and all you saw for a 75 minute trip was graffiti and blocks of flat. My advice is don't take the trip and use the...More

We decided to embark on a stroll along the Danube Canal on our way into the central Vienna. Having walked the Danube in a number of cities it was interesting to walk the canal as an arm of the river and take it in within...More

We took a walk along either side mainly looking for murals and saw some amazing things. Of course there was rubbish and kids tagging but on the whole it was cool. Lots of bars on the side which I bet would come alive at night....More

Walked down from Stephansplatz to Danube Canal. Took around 15 to 20 mins. You can also take a cruise in the Canal. You would like it if you are interested in art, music or graffiti and so on. There are a few places around which...More

Not that interesting and a bit dodgy especially in the evenings but during the daytime you can find some very cool murals and graffitis.

I suspect slot of negative views are associated to the intolerance of anything other than grand ordered architecture when you stumble upon the Danube canal. In Berlin this would be viewed as ‘edgy, street, alternative....yet pretty’ For that reason I will chose to see it...More

Earlier in the week, we had a 1.5 hour cruise on the Danube in the Wachau wine country, with beautiful scenery and historic structures to view, ending at Melk. The Danube cruise from the city canal, however, which was over three hours, was not worth...More

Vienna is more beautiful seen on foot than on this cruise. Maybe August is not the best month for the cruise, because outside the boat it was very hot, inside very cold, but finally we sat downstairs on the buffet, and it was more acceptable....More

I took a walk along the Dunube Canal in the central district of the city - up one side and back down the other. They've lined the canal banks with horrible graffiti, filthy pubs with filthy people drinking and smoking (I can guess what) and...More

Very expensive at 22 euros per adult and there is almost nothing to see. This is not a trip on the Danube itself, it is on the Danube canal, and it is very dull. Lots of grafitti on bridges and quite unattractive. Highlight was the...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
