Alte Donau information
The Alte Donau, a landlocked arm of the Danube, is separated from the Neue Donau by a sliver of land. It carried the main flow of the river until 1875. Now the 160-hectare water expanse is a favourite of Viennese sailing and boating enthusiasts, and also attracts swimmers, walkers, fisherfolk and, in winter (if it’s cold enough), ice skaters.
