On a clear day, from the Donauturm (Danube Tower) you have a distant view up to 80 km (nearly 50 miles), so that the Slovak capital Bratislava comes into view.
Located across from the historic Old Town in Vienna's 22nd district and next to the modern skyscrapers of Danube City, the Danube Tower offers a 360-degree panorama of all the aspects that make Vienna such an exciting city.

The surrounding Danube Park is also a great place to take a break before or after a visit to the Donauturm (Danube Tower) in Vienna.

History of the Donauturm (Danube Tower)

As part of the construction work for the 1964 Vienna International Garden Show, the Danube Tower was erected starting in 1962. The two revolving restaurants, the café at a height of 525 ft and the revolving restaurant at 558 ft were already planned at that time and completed in time for the show.
