Opening hours
  • Enjoy the unique panoramic views over Vienna from Austria's tallest building - don't look down!
  • Custom-designed express elevators carry you to the 150-meter high viewing platform in only 35 seconds
  • Enjoy a light meal at the café, that includes strudel, or go all-out in the luxury restaurant

Fly to the top of this historic tower for the best possible views of Vienna from the open air viewing platform. The express elevators take you there in a flash. Take your time dining in the two revolving restaurants, or sipping a traditional Viennese coffee 160 meters above the ground!

Standing at 252 meters and built from over 17,600 tonnes of concrete, the Danube Tower is the tallest structure in Austria, so if you want panoramic views, you've come to the right place!

The two high-speed elevators will blast you to the observation platform in a cool 35 seconds, and there you can enjoy world-class views of Vienna and the surrounding countryside. Bad weather? No problem - the two-story, glass-walled interior viewing deck is even more dramatic under stormy skies.

Once you've had your fill of high-altitude living you can glide back down to earth. Or, if you want to stretch your legs, you can take the stairs - all 779 of them.

Best view, unfortunately when I arrived it was late/ dark outside, cold and the wind was blowing, that's why I couldn' t enjoy the short stay, but I would definitely return. Also, very nice and helpful personnel.

Good, although the admission fee is rather expensive and it took long to get a seat in the café
