The river is very clean. We rented an electric boat for one hour and kids had a lot of fun. We then went to one of the public beaches. Highly recommended for summer days.

heaven and pedestrian area Mariahilfer Strasse. The
weirdest local building is probably the city aquarium
Haus des Meeres, housed in one of Vienna’s six
remaining World War II defense towers, and topped with
