Donauturm location

The Donauturm (Danube Tower) is situated at the left bank of the Danube in the 22th district (Donaustadt) in the north part of Vienna. Thanks to its height it would be very hard to miss it or get lost.

Getting to Donauturm by public transport

Donauturm has no direct metro or tram connection itself, but is stands mid way between the two U-Bahn lines covering the north of Vienna, U1 and U6. Take the U1 either to Kaisermühlen / Vienna International Centre or to the following station, Alte Donau. Alternatively, you can take U6 to the station Neue Donau. From all these stations it takes about 10-15 minutes walk to get to the Donauturm and you will see the tower from almost everywhere.

Bus from Alte Donau and Neue Donau to Donauturm

If you want to avoid long walking, you can take the bus number 20B, which connects the metro stations Alte Donau and Neue Donau and stops just at the foot of the Donauturm (the bus stop name is also Donauturm). However, it operates only a few times per day and even less on Saturdays. Line 20B does not operate on Sundays and holidays. You can find the schedule on the website of Vienna public transport.

Getting to Donauturm by car

If you want to drive from the centre of Vienna to the Donauturm, you need to follow the signs to Floridsdorf or Donaustadt until you have crossed the Danube on one of the bridges.

If you are driving to Vienna from outside, the directions to the Donauturm are quite straightforward. You need to get to the highway A22 which runs along the left bank of the Danube in the north of Vienna. From most directions other than the north, you can follow the signs to Prague (Praha).

Once you are at the left bank of the Danube, exit the A22 highway at exit Brigittenauer Brücke. After you exit the highway, you must not go over the big bridge over the Danube – that would get you back to the city centre. The Donauturm is the other way in Donauturmstrasse.

You can combine your visit to the Donauturm with a visit to the United Nations offices and use the parking at the UNO City.
