The Danube Island (Donauinsel) is a recreational paradise, filled with bathing, boating, cycling, skating, beach volleyball, and picnics. It is an ideal fun and relaxation place for the entire family.
Danube Island is a favorite recreational region for the Viennese and for all visitors. The Danube Island can be reached from the city center in minutes. Multiple trails invite active visitors to hike, jog, cycle, and skate. Bathing areas with flat beaches and natural bathing sites, a water slide, a surfing school, a water ski lift, and a boat rental service offer plenty of opportunities for water fun.
For families, the family beach offers safe and child-friendly fun. The beach has fine gravel and is protected by a number of small islands just off shore. The deepest water is just one meter and the shores have a soft incline. Enjoy the restaurant, ice cream stand, and playground. On the water playground, children can splash, jump in puddles, and experiment. Small captains can cross a pond on a rope ferry or on a 15-meter suspended bridge. In the meander zone, children can build sand castles from mud and there's a separate, fenced-in play area for children under three.
The "Danube Jumping" complex is the world's largest floating trampoline center, with 40 individual jumping areas. It is fun for young and old alike. The Danube Island climbing park is perfect for fearless visitors who wish to climb to their heart's content with trained climbing guides. The experience is replete with absolutely gorgeous views of the surroundings.
