Donauparkbahn

We’ve been looking for a place where we could have fun together with our daughter and we’ve set to discover the “Danube Park train” track. Its circuit running since 1964 is located in 22nd district – “Donaupark”.

You can enter and exit on any of its three “stations”. Closest to U1 is the station “Donaucity” which takes approx. 5 minutes by foot from station “Kaisermühlen-VIC”, but it’s not the easiest to find and could be better marked. Therefore, we recommend you to take the 20 minutes’ walk through the picturesque Park to reach the station “Donauturm”, where train stops a little longer. Third station is “Rosenschau” which is closer to U1 Station “Alte Donau”.

It’s a 3,4km an approximately 20 minutes long pleasant ride through Danube Park. You’ll enjoy magnificent flower beds, lush meadows as well as different places Park has to offer.

If you feel like it, you can also buy “Combi-Card” and rise with discount 252m high to the “Donau turm”.

 

UNO CITY

After our morning coffee we decided to visit the “UNO City”. UNO City is situated in the 22. District –Donaustadt and it’s easily reachable from the center of Vienna with Metro U1, station: Kaisermühlen – VIC.

High buildings of the UNO City are simply fascinating. They are really the opposite to the “classic” Vienna. It’s construction began in 1973 and it’s still developing. Hiding behind these skyscrapers you’ll find a large park, stretching all the way to the river, called “the Donau Park”. It offers many open fields, walkways, play toys for children and of course the famous “Donauturm”.

We’ve visited it in the morning and were able to enjoy peaceful long walk in the park all the way to the river Danube. We’ve been enjoying the walk so much that we’ve decided not to return to the U1 station where we’ve arrived but walked towards the picturesque station U1 – “Donauinsel” reachable under the “Reichsbrücke”.

The park is peaceful and definitely worth a visit if you want to chill and enjoy the nature. We absolutely enjoyed it.
