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.

Beautiful area for long walks along the canal while enjoying the scenery. Boats, ships, trees and of course, the beautiful old Vienna buildings. A great way to get to know the city. At any point of your walk you can stop and take a break at a good pastry shop or a cafe.

while we were in Vienna we spent a long walk on the banks of river Danube and the two associated canal. It has beautiful gardens and lovely view of the city line. One cannot miss the cable stayed bridge and two other bridges while on the go.

This is the best place for a sunny day.If you have enough time, go rent a mini bout, it cost 20 euros for 4 persons and you can take a ride on the Canal.There are a lot of swimming spots and sunbeds(Copa Cagrana near Onu City) and one can rent a bike for a nice walk.For family trips try the...

A lovely functional canal which flows directly through the centre of the city and gives rise to a number of water inspired picturesque views - that said it also provides no end of opportunity for grafiti artists, though maybe artist is the wrong word. It is an enjoyable place to cycle/stroll along AND perhaps more importantly it serves as an... More

We embarked on the Danube Canal river boat cruise for free using our Vienna Pass card. Although the cruise provided a welcome break from our walking around Vienna city centre taking in all the sights, the views from the river cruise were far from impressive. The only recollections I can remember taking back from the cruise was the graffiti that... More

The canal is quite long and it's great for taking a stroll. You can also find bars and restaurants on the side and it has a lovely atmosphere. Some people like to sun tan in the area or walk their dogs. You also get a nice view of the city along the way.

We took the Tauck riverboat cruise from Prague to Budapest. We flew Lufthansa business class. While the meals were very good the seats were very uncomfortable. They did fully recline but in that position you err jabbed with a metal bar. Delta's business class seats are much more comfortable. We flew into Frankfurt for s very short layover to Prague....

On the banks of the Danube canal is a brilliant series of abstract sculpture by Karl Karner. Worth while viewing if you are into the visual arts.

My husband and I always take cruises in every city we go to, but that one was the worst of all. We booked one-hour cruise, but we were bored after 20 minutes - there was nothing interesting to see from the boat perspective. Even our kids wanted to get off the boat after half an hour. It's a waste of... More

Took the 3 hour cruise. Not much to see unless you like industrial landscapes. Spent half an hour in a lock. Lovely views of the Vienna motorway bridge. Plus you get to see the container port, wind turbines, a power station plus an oil finery in the distance on a clear day.

Staying in Leopoldstadt

Neighbourhood Profile
Leopoldstadt
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 ethnic restaurants. Head for Augarten via Karmelitermarkt, Leopoldstadt’s trendy marketplace. Baroque Augarten itself hosts a bizarre mix of manicured hedges and flowerbeds in front of a colossal World War II defense tower, the publicly accessible 300-year-old Augarten porcelain manufactory, the palatial boarding school and funky concert hall of the Vienna Boys Choir, and the modern art museum TBA21. At its opposite corner, The Prater not only houses the Giant Ferris Wheel but blends a bustling amusement park with lush woodland, perfect for a bike tour. Further east is the old derby racing ground of Krieau.
