Where you'll be

The Alte Donau is a watery oasis in the middle of the city, perfectly designed for further investigation via kayak. It is a 1.6 sq km lake that used to be a side arm of the grand Danube River. The New Danube is the gateway to the 'new' Vienna, and is where the locals go to escape summer in the city. It's where we'll find the city's self-styled 'Copa Beach' and its cocktail bars, as well as Vienna's famous recreational spot, the Danube Island.
