Austria’s highest landmark, the Vienna Danube Tower, in which Wien Holding also holds a stake, provides not only a fantastic view but also culinary highlights.

The revolving tower restaurant offers guests food at the highest level: a height of 170 meters with a 360-degree panoramic view of Vienna. Whether menu or à la carte, the Danube Tower offers the finest Austrian cuisine, with regional products and seasonally coordinated.

The tower café is designed in the style of the 1960s. Like the tower restaurant, it also includes a panoramic view of Vienna. Here, guests can expect Viennese coffeehouse culture with traditional pastries and a great coffee selection at a height of 160 meters.

Gourmets can choose from a variety of enjoyment packages in the Danube Tower. These include a 3-course menu, a romantic dinner, a brunch, and a birthday party.

Kurt Gollowitzer, Managing Director of Wien Holding, says, “The Danube Tower is more than just a landmark of Vienna. It is a viewing platform, restaurant and event location all in one. Here, enjoyment at the highest level is offered in the truest sense of the word.”
