The Vienna Danube Tower | Blogtober 2017

As I mentioned in my last post, my boyfriend visited me last weekend and we spent nearly the whole Saturday and more than the half of Sunday together and it was sooo awesome. Not only that he drove two hours to see me, he also planed the whole weekend, so we ended up with so much walking and a lot of great attractions. So, I have to admit that I’m not the most spontaneous person and as he suggested to go on the Danube Tower at 4 p.m., I was more than sceptical. First of all, I thought, that it’s way too late and my second thought was that it would take us so so long to get there. But I said yes, and thanks God, I was so wrong and it turned out that it was super pretty and I loved it.

So, if you don’t know what the Danube Tower is, I’ll give you a short round-up. With its hight of 252m it is the tallest building in Austria and – what I find really impressive – was built during 1962 to 1964. Since it’s that high, there are two high-speed elevators, which I honestly don’t like too much – just a little bit too fast for my taste, but ya know, everything is better than taking the stairs. On the top, there’s a viewing platform which offers you a full 360° view AMAZING! Despite that, there’s also a restaurant and a café, which rotates, so you get the full view even during dinner.

Enough from the facts, let’s talk about my personal experience! This Saturday was the third time I was there, and it was the first time where it wasn’t windy as hell on the top. I went there once with my school mates during a stay in Vienna in the 4th form, and I think my hair never touched my shoulders as long as I was on the terrace – it was SO windy! Despite that, it was the perfect time since the sun was really low and everything looked so pretty and amazing!!  The only downside of this visit on Saturday was, that the café was closed since there was an event – fancy – and so we didn’t manage to get a big slice of Sachertorte. But yeah, it was awesome!

Apart from the Tower itself, there’s such a pretty park around it. It was absolutely incredible, since everything looked so golden and perfect due to the sun and the autumnal leaves. So, yeah if you ever spend a few days in Vienna, it’s def worth to jump into the U1 and get to this touristic attraction! It’s very cool and unique and I love the view on the city – especially since I’m living here, so I could find my house and other locations, which was a lot of fun actually. Despite that, it isn’t that expensive at all and there are also some combi tickets, where you can save a lot of money if you want to visit other attractions too – we actually bought one for the Tower and the Zoo and there’re valid for one year, which is great!

So, you see I can talk quite a lot about this place – I actually gave a presentation on the Danube Tower in school – and therefore, I really recommend going there once! Are there any places you love in Vienna, have you already been to the Tower and did you like it? I’d love to read your experience in the comments!
