The Donaupark (Danube Park) is a 80 hectare (200 acre) city park in Vienna.
Originally planned in the 1960s, its purpose was to rejuvenate an area that was previously used as a rubbish dump and a notorious site for Nazi executions in the 1930s and 1940s.
The central point of the park today is the 250 meter high Donautürm, the highest structure in Vienna, which gives visitors a spectacular view over the city.
In the beginning the area was used for garden shows, but today the park has diversified and now contains a petting zoo, an area for skateboarders and even giant chess.
The Park is located on an island on the Danube, between the center of Vienna and the districts of Donaustadt and Florisdorf. It can be reached easily with public transport from most places in Vienna.
