Activities in Vienna in Spring

The sun is shining, it is getting warmer outside, spring is coming. The city of Vienna presents its full charme during this season. The city offers lots of great outdoor activities to tourists and many business travelers, who stay in our apartment hotels in Vienna for a couple of weeks or month. We want to recommend these activities especially to longstay travelers, as this will provide you with distraction from your work life. Be it the danube island or the green wood – Vienna offers great possibilities for outdoor activities to our guests in our apartment hotels.

Relax on the danube island or the old danube in Vienna

The danube island is a green oasis not far from the city center. The natural reserve was artificially built during the regulation of the danube in the 70s and 80s of the past centuries. The two exterior parts of the danube island are very green and left to the nature, while the middle part is constructed like a park. Lots of cafés and bars are situated there and the riverside guarantees a relaxed atmosphere. We highly recommend to also visit the Old Danube, a side-arm of the Danube, which also evolved during the regulation of the danube. There is nothing than a jump into the water on a cold day. You can also rent paddle boats and sailboats there.

Action on the Wakeboardlift in Vienna

We highly recommend to all our guests in our apartment hotels in Vienna, who are looking for some action, to go to the Wakeboardlift. The wakeboardlift is located close to the subway station “Donaustadtbrücke” (metro-line U2). The price of a day-pass is 36 €, 2 hours of wakeboarding cost 23 €. Beginners and experienced wakeboarders are welcome to do wakeboarding there. Furthermore, a sunny terrace is waiting for you with delicious meals and drinks.

Hiking in the Wienerwald (engl. Viennese forrest)

We highly recommend to all our guests in our apartment hotels in Vienna to go hiking to the Wienerwald, which is not far from the Derag Livinghotel Kaiser Franz Joseph. The city trails are signposted, accessible with public transport and also have a great infrastructure. Find more information on the different hiking trails here.

We wish you a great stay in one of our apartment hotels in Vienna, the Derag Livinghotel Kaiser Franz Joseph and the Derag Livinghotel An der Oper!
