This offshoot of the Danube River flows through the city just north of the downtown area and, with paved pathways lining its banks, makes for a pleasant stroll.

It´s good to know Donau Kanal is not Donau River! Kanal is bayou, trench - and not worth to see. If you like to travel for awhile by boat, drink beer and maybe eat something in sunny day you might take a risk. I do...More

This came free with our Vienna pass. Its one of several trips that can be done with the Danube River Cruise company. It was a bit disapointing only taking us up to the lock and back again. If you like graffiti art you are in...More

I did not realise it was a canal at first. It was just a body of flowing water that I saw from the Prater tram. It has well used paths with wslkers, joggers and cyclists.

The Donau Kanal lies just on the limit of the Vienna city centre. It is NOT the Donau but a canal, and the immediate surroundings would benefit from renovation.

The street art on the banks of Donau in the middle of Vienna is a slightly more polite little brother to Mauerpark in Berlin. It's a great contrast to all the posh old buildings in Innerstadt. You can take a walk - or run -...More

The canal is a trendy hub with pop up bars and cafes, plus lots of street art and artists! The area has a fresh bohemian vibe and is well worth a look or an early evening stroll!

Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The
second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from
medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from
pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current
hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative
crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city centre and
take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old
townhouses, churches, theatres, discount shops and
