About the Danube Tower of ViennaVienna's TV Tower (Donauturm), known by its other names, such as the Donau Tower or the Danube Tower, is particularly prominent in the Vienna skyline. This is because it is the tallest tower in the city and the first skyscraper built there.
The tower rises to a height of 352 meters and its interesting shape attracts attention almost immediately. By the way, it was added to the list of the 100 tallest buildings in the world - at the time when it was built it was in 75th place.
The Donau Tower is located in the 12th quarter, in the heart of a wide green park, which extends north of the Danube River and hence the nickname Danube Tower. It was opened to the public in 1964, after more than a year and a half of construction. Almost immediately it became a tourist attraction and a favorite place of entertainment for the hundreds of thousands of tourists and locals who come to it every year. Today it serves as a television tower with radio and television antennas.
Due to the high height of the tower, the observation point from its head is spectacular and it is worthwhile to reach it. If you decide to eat a meal at one of the two restaurants located on it, one 160 meters high and revolving, the second at the height of 170 meters, you can look at different parts of the city.
If you are an extreme fan - bungee is more than allowed at this tower. In 2000, this bungee area was declared the highest in the world. The tower has large, fast elevators that will bring you quickly to each of the observation points, restaurants or attractions on it. Enjoy!
