Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

After 3 days of walking/sight seeing in temps in the mid 30's, the staff in our wonderful hotel (Kaiserhof Wein) suggested we take the nearby underground to this delightful lake. In 10 mins we were transported from a dusty, littered and crowded Vienna to a cool oasis where we could walk in the shade or rent a boat or canoe.
We opted for the small electric umbrellaed boat. No loud power boats or noisy watercraft.
There were many people swimming - jumping off boats, from the beaches on the island and from the banks of the lake. It was great to sit lakeside in the shade and have a late lunch at one of the many restaurants.
If you have time and the weather is good, go visit this area.

Nice quiet place, perfect for long walk. We had nice time there. Escape to nature is always good plan. Danube is amazing!

Danube has a new and old part - the canal and the river itself is further out of Vienna. Boat rides are very expensive and it's difficult to know where to go apart from a boat ride. I don't think we saw the Cabal/river at its best. Do your research and decide what you want to do in advance.

In a sunny day, just go to its Northern Part, known as WasserPark, find a spot on the grass-lawn and lie down, watch the Ducks, Geese, Swans and their Friends, having Fun in the Sun too... :-)) Ho, HEAVEN.

The Alte Donau offers different possibility to enjoy the summer, having a walk around the river, taking a boat or just sunbathing. Especially during warmer days offers great opportunities, in a city like Vienna, but feeling in a completely different place.

The water is very clean and it is quite simple to find a spot by the river to lay down a blanket or towel and slide right into the water. Be careful, though, because close to the shore the rocks are covered in algae and kelp, while farther in, the riverbed also has long tendrils of kelp. It is very clean and wonderfully refreshing to swim in. There are restrooms and cafes on the island, and both the U1 and the U6 have a stop on the island. It's very easy to get to and quite the pleasurable experience.

This is an absolutely beautiful river. Walking to the UN buildings in the morning, I always stopped to enjoy the beauty of the river and the swans majestically drifting along its banks. It creates a holiday "vibe" in the middle of Vienna's hustle and bustle.

You'll be surprise to see a lake instead of seeing the Donau itself . You may book aa day a boat and take a nice sunny day on the lake .

Jumping the Ubahn down to stop Alte Donau ( U1 ) which is only a short ride from the main tourist areas of Vienna brings you to a much more tranquil district of this most beautiful of city's namely Alte Donau.
This beautiful riverside area is cool,you can rent boats to enjoy the River Danube or explore the Donauinsel area with it's long narrow island and unique architecture, great views of the Donauturm ( Danube Tower ) Austria's tallest building.
Theres so much to do here and so much to see ,its just a joy to go.
My twin brother Stephen and I hopped the Ubahn down to here ,had a great couple of hours, although in the heart of the city it also secluded at the same time,a beautiful part of the River Danube and most definitely well worth checking out if your planning a holiday to Vienna.
