Although Vienna is not near to the sea, you can find in Vienna some places where you can easily forget this fact. With sandy beach, cool drinks, fine food and good music you very quickly come to holiday mood. So where can you find those places?

The really fine thing of all the locations is that they are centrally located and can be reached quickly and easily from us. And so you can find just a few steps from the city center along the Danube canal, a rich offer. That you can get everywhere good food and drinks may not be specially mentioned :-)

A long-time classic is the Herrmann beach bar right at the Urania where sand, sun loungers and hammocks wait for you, fine food and drinks are standard.

A few steps away you can find then the Badeschiff with pool and restaurant.

In the dock of the Twin City Liner you can not just watche the busy Schwedenplatz and the incoming boats watch but also get delishous food at Motto am Fluss.

Directly vis a vis on the other side of the Danube Canal (facing the Ringturm, where I used to work) you can chill out comfortably on Tel Aviv Beach or the Wiener Schützenhaus enjoying the evening sun.

If you walk a bit further upstream the Danube Canal, then you come to the Summerstage where you can find numerous places to eat and many other offers.

Probably the largest beach club in Vienna is Sand in the City at the Heumarkt. There, where in winter the ice skaters pull their rounds (= Wiener Eislaufverein ) now much sand, beach volleyball, fitness facilities and a colorful mix of culinary offerings are waiting for you.

As you can see, though Vienna is not directly near the sea, beach and holiday mood can be easily found right in the heart of the city.
