La Donauturm di Vienna (in italiano: Torre sul Danubio) fu creata nel 1964 dall'architetto Hannes Lintl in occasione della Mostra Internazionale del Giardino (WIG 64). Da allora è diventata una popolare torre panoramica ed attrazione turistica.
If you're in Vienna you have to visit this. The panorama view is amazing. For the Restaurant you will need a reservation but there's also a coffeshop on the floor below where you can sit and have a drink and enjoy the view.
We had restaurant reservations for three atnoon. The meal was the best we had in Vienna all week. We did the 37,80 euros that included beverage (we had champagne), salad/soup, entree with sides, and dessert or cheese platter. We all opted for salads and they were large and tasty with a light oil dressing. My daughter had the pike and said it was delicious. My husband and I had the fried chicken. It was prepared schnitzel style and was excellent. There were two large pieces and I took one home. My daughter ordered the cheese platter for dessert but was so full she could only eat a little. My husband had something stuffed with plum and loved it. I had the "flower pot" which was a rich chocolate mousse, vanilla ice cream and dark cherries. It was my second favorite dessert this week. We would rate the meal as a 10. Excellent service and reasonable price for the quality of the food and experience. It was a clear day and the view of the surrounding countryside and the Blue Danube was spectacular and we got wonderful photos. The only reason I could not give the tower a 5,rating is for two reasons. Primary is the fact that after you get off the elevator there are 21 steps up to the restaurant with no disabled access. I use a wheelchair and it took great effort for my family to get me up the stairs. In this day and age, this is just wrong. Secondly, if you have dinner reservations, you should not have to pay a separate fee for the elevator. All in all, though, our dinner experience at the Blue Danube Tower was the highlight of our trip.
Fantastic views of Vienna from the observation decks, the cafe and restaurant upstairs. You must make a reservation for the restaurant but the cafe is good dining too. The rotating top isn't for everyone but is an experience. Evening is the best time to go to watch the sunset and then see the lights of the city shine at night.
We had a restaurant reservation on a Saturday night for dinner, the staff is very friendly and polite, they speak a very good english, also the view is fabulous , the whole restaurant is spinning 360 degrees so you can see the whole city during your stay. The food is very good, I tried the wiener schnitzel, it has been one of the best I ever ate.
Wonderful view over Vienna. Having dinner there is a quite an experience, especially after sunset when the city lights go bright like diamonds on black velvet. However during the day the view is breathtaking as well.
Perfect place to see ALL Vienna. The top of the tower is spinning around and u can drink something or eat, watching all the time from all ankles, the whole Vienna. Must go there...
The fastest elevators in Europe that will take you to the highest pastry shop in Vienna. And if you are lucky to find a table, take the spot at the window and keep your camera ready!
Nice view. Nothing special unless the banji in open
A MUST see tower with excellent view of the city and the tower. There is also a coffee machine up there which is a delight as it can get cold and windy. There is also a restaurant as well as a bungee jumping edge for those who are interested. All in all perfect panoramic view of Vienna. Highly recommended.
Not sure what to think of it to be honest... We went there with the intention to have dinner. We knew we may need reservations but decided to try our luck. Everything was booked. We asked if the Cafe was available (no reservations needed for Cafe we were told) they said no and that was it. We asked when they would have a spot available and they said not soon... So we were kind of left hanging there... The restaurant is above the Cafe and has crazy prices but the Cafe has normal Vienna prices. They both turn 360 degrees every 30 min. We only went up to see the view since we were already there. It was horrendously windy on the terrace. The wind was beating on the touch screens so they were unresponsive to our touch. The touchscreens show you info on the landmarks you see from the tower. On the ride up the man in the elevator (not sure what they are called) gives you some basic info on the tower in English. The roof of the elevator is see-through and there is a light so you can watch as you climb up. Interesting. There is a closed terrace as well so you don't get blown away. If you decide to go, I suggest you make a reservation in the Cafe so it's not a wasted trip.
This is absolutely amazing! A must see in Vienna! Although is pretty expensive, it was worth it. The 360* view from the terrace over city is breathtaking. Over the terrace there is a rotating restaurant. It was an unforgettable experience eating lunch at 165m in a rotating restaurant.
Very nice view. There is bus passing near. The rotating restaurant is amazing. There are construction works in the base of the tower.
Well worth it. The food at the restaurant is affordable, delicious and with such a beautiful view, the best spot for lunch hands down!
To be honest I didn't like it as much as I thought I would. It's far from the city centre. But has a unique cafe that rotates to offer a dynamic 360 view of Vienna skyline. But I couldn't stay long as I started to suffer from motion sickness
Being my birthday what better way to spend it than a visit to this most excellent attraction. At the top of the tower is Donauturm Restaurant where I had a rather delicious meal. The food was cooked to perfection. The view whilst eating was nothing short of marvellous. The staff were courteous and nothing was too much trouble.
Went here for a meal in the restaurant at the tower. Good food, good service and great view. Would recommend booking and keeping an eye on the opening times, during our visit a family came in and asked for food at 10:30 as it was about to close. 3 course set meal & bottle of wine came to just over €100 slightly disappointed that had to also pay for entrance and if coming by public transport be aware of bus times otherwise it’s a taxi back or a mile walk to the u bahn
Very nice tower Can get ticket on the counter. Very good connectivity of public transport. There is a rotating restaurant on the top floor. There is a nice view of the Danube river and the places around from top floor. Wi-Fi connection available. Bungee jumping is conducted during summer. One of the best tourist attraction in Vienna. Parking available
A fantastic place to visit! Wonderful views from observation decks and rotating cafe. The food was good, not exceptional. The park area the tower is at is beautiful. We took the little train on the 20 minute trip around the grounds. Good fun!
I visited here recently for a reservation at the rotating Restaurant at the top of the tower. The food and service in the restaurant were very good and the staff were lovely. The views from the restaurant and from the viewing platforms on the levels below are wonderful. I was there mostly in the evening when it was dark and I was still impressed. There is both indoor and outdoor viewing areas. The tower is a little distance from central Vienna so you’re not too close to many of the famous landmark building in the city, however the views are still amazing and you can still see all of the city spread out below you. There is a fee to visit the viewing platform and it’s worth noting that if you’re going to the restaurant, you still have to pay the entry fee to get in the tower first. One last thing... don’t forget to look up at the ceiling when you’re in the elevator. 😉
Absolutely exhilarating experience, 252 metres tall, the largest tower in Austria. We had a beautiful schnitzel and goulash in the revolving restaurant and an Aperol spritz of course. The lift has a glass top and the lift shaft is illuminated so that is quite fun. You walk down the stairs to the outside viewing canopy, boy was that windy today, they also have zoom cameras that you can get a photo from. The best views in Vienna. A must.
Entrance is 14.5 € for a person. It is around 252 meters high from the ground. While you are in the elevator, you can see where you climb through a glass. On the top, you can see whole Vienna with 360 degrees of view. There is also a cafe and restaurant on the top which is turning around the tower 360 degrees to show you full view from all side.
