Danube Tower (German: Donauturm) is one of the biggest attractions of Vienna and at the same time the tallest building in the city (252 m high).

At a height of 150 m there is a viewing platform, which can be reached by a fast elevator or stairs (776 stairs to be climbed). Slightly higher, at an altitude of 160 and 170 m, revolving restaurants are located, from where you can see the skyline of Vienna. In good weather you can see the Alps, Bratislava, and Slovak Carpathians.

The tower is located in the Donaupark, where there are playgrounds, green areas with flowers and plenty of paths for walking.

Not really recommended for children, however if you dare, you can jump off the tower on the bungee.
