Donauturm     >>

<<     A-Z     >>

The Vienna Donauturm (English: Danube Tower) was created in 1964 by architect Hannes Lintl in the course of the Viennese International Horticultural Show (WIG 64). With a height of 252 meters, it is the tallest building in Vienna and the second tallest in Austria. 776 steps lead to its viewing platform, which is at a height of 150 meters. It can be reached by means of two elevators, which take visitors upwards in only 35 seconds. The platform also bears a bungee site, used at times during summer.

Two revolving restaurants (at a height of 160 and 170 meters) offer a varied view over the Austrian capital. It takes the platform either 26, 39 or 52 minutes per Revolution.
