We had no idea that this park was even here, we were in the area having booked a boat ride and then we intended to swim in the lake... but in our search for the beach we stumbled upon the ticket office for this park. It cost just €5.50 for the day. There are multiple pools and beaches, lots of... More

I went with some friends with the metro to a station called Alte Donau, very near to the station we went to buy tickets to enter - I dont recall the actual price but defiantly between 2-6 Euros/Person-. We had so much fun you swim and some geese also swim you could take pictures and there is a restaurant to... More

My friend and I visited this beach in Vienna when it was 32 C. The water was perfect: not very warm but not freezing either. There are some great docks for jumping and diving off of. There is also a separate dock for lounging. The 'beach' part is on the grass with tons of shade from the willow trees. It... More

A beautiful spot on the Danube. There are a couple of swimming pools for those that don't fancy swimming in the river but it's a well maintained area so swimming in the river is easy (there's a few jetties and one has stairs). There's a couple of places to eat and drink, places to store baggage and get changed/showered etc.... More

Free entry if you go to the right place. From the Donau Alte station walk past the first 2 pools for 500m then enter the free park. Wade into the river, it's at least 30C! Lots of families in the park but on a weekday evening I found it not crowded. A few of the more energetic punters were doing... More

I visited Vienna during a heat wave and went off to Alte Donau to cool down and take a swim. Here you have three options: two lidos with entrance fee and a free one without catering etc.

This huge park and swimming area is a very nice place in the city limits of Vienna where the temperature is over 30 celcius, then you must take the metro and direct yrself to this hidden paradise.Cool water will refresh you in any way.Strongly recommended to call at this place and enjoy yr time with a lot of available activities.

Quick recommendation: get a month ticket which is only the price of 4 single tickets if u plan to stay there a long time. And it gets u into public pools and swimming places including Alte Donau. ( u have to go in the second gate though which is quite farfrom the metro station alte donau) If u want to... More
