Slide experience at breathtaking heightsThe Danube Tower features a special highlight – a slide, more precisely Europe's highest slide. The slide was built at an impressive height of 165 m (541,34 ft) on the Danube Tower. The internationally renowned German object artist Carsten Höller is responsible for the art project. Daredevils can slide through the semi-transparent artwork on the northern outer side of the tower to the viewing level at a height of 150 m and get an adrenaline rush as well as a breathtaking view. The installation took place in 2023 in a spectacular helicopter operation and will give the Viennese landmark a new, temporary silhouette for at least a few years. Please note that a separate slide ticket must be purchased in addition to the admission ticket to use the slide.

History of the Danube Tower

The Danube Tower was built in 1962 as part of the construction work for the Vienna International Garden Show in 1964. The two revolving restaurants, the café at a height of 160m (525 ft) and the revolving restaurant at 170m (558 ft) were already planned at the time and completed in time for the show. In 2018 - 55 years after its construction - the Danube Tower was 'state of the art' rebuilt and extended. Extensive modernization, technical adaptations and a return to the elegant style of the 1960s were carried out. The visitor and viewing experience was enhanced with new entertainment options and information screens.
