The Danube restaurant was booked as soon as I found where researching where I wanted to eat in Vienna. 252 meters high, two fast lifts, 35 seconds up: the observation terrace of the Danube Tower at a height of 155 meters offers the best view over Vienna and the Danube river. The 360° panorama view of the city is breathtaking. Freshly renovated, the Danube Tower presents itself in a new splendour. Or rather, in its old glory. The restaurant and cafe at the top of the tower revolve around its own axis at a height of 170 meters. The interiors have been restored to the style of the 1960’s but of course the technology has been brought completely up to date. The Danube Tower was built on the occasion of the Vienna Garden Show in 1964.
I had a lunch booked for 12pm. When arrived I was shown to my seat and although I could see other people, it felt like I had it to myself. In Austria at midday from what I have seen. They have coffee, a light meal at lunch time.
I knew that I could have Austria food here and this was my choice of what to eat.
I enjoyed the view so much, I loved revolving while eating taking in all the different things that you could see. It is something I will not forget for a long time.
And then my food came out, I had ordered minced veal butter schnitzel. It was not bad. Not something I am used too or would eat again.
But the absolute highlight is the panoramic view. From nowhere in the city can you get a better view of Vienna and the Danube. I am glad and visited and would recommend this to anyone. They do have a cafe, if you do not want to go for a full on meal. When I popped in there, it was very busy. And there is also a viewing platform that you can experience. For me, it was all about the revolving restaurant and I pleased I got there.
