Donau Observation Tower

5 out of 5 stars (2 reviews)


After extensive reconstruction works in 2017/2018 the whole tower will shine with new brilliance, glamour and charm of the 1960´s.
Two elevators will transport your guests up to the central station at 165 meters in just 40 seconds. In the Danube Tower, everything revolves around Vienna history, cuisine, wines and hospitality.
Furthermore guests can expect a journey through the looks of the 1960s and new enter- and infotainment.
The renewed revolving turm restaurant – in 170 meters - and turm café – in 160 meters - and the observation desk offers a breath taking 360 degree outlook over whole Vienna. A few meters further up there is a 360 degree glazed turm event terrace which is the perfect place to enjoy the view of the city even in bad weather. It also is the ideally suitable venue for a various of events and presentations, including workshops, private parties and even civil wedding ceremonies and receptions. 2018 we will open donaucafé, a Viennese traditional coffee-house with lots of strudels and other typical Austrian cakes and tortes. The new donaubräu – opening summer 2018 – will tempt you to typical Austrian beer tradition with its outstanding new donaubräu – the beer which is also the name for the restaurant with its beautiful beer garden in summer. 2018 will open our new donaushop – get your very own souvenir for yourself or your friends from Danube Tower Vienna and the beautiful romantic capital of Austria.

" Donau - Spectacular Sights. "
5 out of 5 stars
Visited the Observation Tower. Breath taking views. Ideally located in the new town. There are two restaurants. Both were full on Sunday afternoon. Better to book in advance. Very cosy place. Not crowded. You reach 160 mtrs building in 35 seconds. Amazing experience. It was windy and chilly outside. You can as well watch within the glass windows. We really loved this tour.
" Amazing view of Vienna! "
5 out of 5 stars
This is must see when you go to Vienna. Make sure to bring your camera. Take the express elevator, check-out the observation deck or experience the Viennese hospitality 170 meters above the city. Great experience!
