It’s so unusual when the sky gets so blue when the weather is at 0 degrees! That’s just what we had last Friday. And because school was starting again after a week-long break, we decided to to go up Vienna’s Danube tower’s restaurant and have lunch, a late lunch actually while enjoying the view from above of that bluish day.
The Danube tower (Donauturm) is at the middle of the Donaupark, by the northern bank of the Danube. The park itself is a vast area of greens and it is where many annual Viennese concerts and events are held. There are also playgrounds for kids, a liliputbahn (mini-train)going around the park and a lot of open fields to play football at.
There are two revolving restaurants at the tower, one at 160 meters (called Panorama), which is more of a café and one at 170 meters (called Donauwalzer) which serves traditional Austrian cuisine.
Going up the tower – one can take either of the two elevators to go up the viewing platform at 35 seconds! To get more out of the speedy experience, the elevator roof was done in glass!
More about the Danube tower on my food blog soon.
