    The Danube Canal Cycle Route, one of eight theme bike trails in Vienna, leads from the Nussdorf Weir to the Vienna Harbor. Along the right bank of the river you cycle across the city. On the route there are numerous bridges to the left bank and useful district connections, such as via Skywalk in the direction of D├Âbling or via Berggasse to Mariahilf. We tested the bike path and were traveling with the video camera.vienna.at/fahrradwege-in-wien-der-donaukanal-radweg/3635885

    The best way to get by bike from the west (Klosterneuburg) to the city center.

    Nice bike way bringing you almost right into the heart of the city

    Wonderful route, even if the bike path could be a bit wider.
    But what fascinates me is all the graffiti along the Danube Canal. Real artists are out there!

    We cycled on Saturday from Klosterneuburg to the Prater along the Danube Canal. Nice to drive!

    The Danube Canal is the arm of the Danube closest to the city center in Vienna. It was once also called Wiener Wasser or Wiener Arm. The proposed term Little Danube for him has not prevailed.
    In the Middle Ages, the course of today's Danube Canal was the main branch of the Danube. The city of Vienna developed on a flood-proof terrace on its south-west bank. The Danube used to have frequent floods that changed the bed again and again. The main stream shifted again and again. Around 1700, since the main river now flowed far to the east, the term "Danube Canal" came into use for the arm close to the city. 1598-1600 this was regulated for the first time. In the 1830s, its bed was relocated from the Mauthnerwasser, which still exists today, at the Lusthaus to the current straight course between the gas works and Freudenau. In the course of the regulation of the Danube between 1868 and 1875, the Danube Canal was expanded again, in particular the intake structure near Nussdorf and the estuary near Albern.
