Summer in the city - Where can I go swimming in Vienna?

Donauinsel in Wien

Donauinsel in Wien

Every year, Vienna is the top place in the world to live. Although many people tend to avoid big cities in summer, we would like to recommend a trip to the Austrian capital during the summer months. Bathing is part of Vienna's culture. Especially in summer, you can enjoy the several natural bathing places, open-air pools and other waters of the city. Many of these bathing resorts are accessible free of charge or for a small fee. 

Do not miss the following hotspots for bathing for your trip to Vienna during the warm months: 

  • Donauinsel und Neue Donau
  • Alte Donau
  • Mühlwasser und Schillerwasser
  • Strandbad Gänselhaufen
  • Strandbad Angelibad

Book a cheap hired car for Vienna - Compare prices

Ideally, you are already looking for a hired car via the Internet before you start your trip to Vienna in Austria. On the Internet, you can compare prices. This way you receive all offers for rental cars and insurance at a glance. Using the Internet price comparison you can find a cheap hired car for Vienna and book it directly.

When choosing the insurance, make sure that you take out a fully comprehensive insurance policy with no excess and include an additional driver. This way, you are on the safe side when damage to your car occurs or you do not want to drive yourself, but want to leave it to your girlfriend /boyfriend. If you book a hired car via the internet, you can find a cheap hired car here at She hired car is then provided to you at the desired location by the car hire company, for example on arrival at Vienna Airport. If you first ask for a hired car on the spot, these are usually more expensive here. The deposit for the hired car in Vienna will then be deposited with the car hire company at the desk, for example at the airport.

One-way rentals Vienna: What do you need to know?

As the name says, one-way rentals, this way you book a hired car for only one way. This means that you can pick up the hired car at the desired location, for example at Vienna Airport at the car hire service and return it later on to another station. For example, you might arrive in Vienna by plane and pick up your hired car. You will then continue your journey to the to one of the ski areas in Austria. And from here you want to go back home by train, for example. If you book one-way rentals, you can pick up the hired car at the place of arrival and return it later at the place of departure. Of course, an insurance policy for such a used hired car is also required via the one-way rentals, usually as fully comprehensive insurance with no excess and a deposit upon collection. Of course, you can also specify an additional driver here so that you don't have to drive all the way alone. For this reason, you should specify when making your online booking whether you want to pick up the hired car at the same location, for example at Vienna Airport, where you would like to return it, or whether you choose two different locations for collection and return. You can also find many offers for one-way rentals by comparing prices on our website.

Hired car Vienna: Additional driver and insurance

When concluding the contract, it is important that you also choose the right insurance. With a comprehensive insurance policy with no excess, you are always on the safe side. Especially in the dense city traffic of Vienna, it can happen that you have a small rear-end collision or the hired car has otherwise been damaged. If you have chosen the insurance as comprehensive insurance without any excess, you will have probably no costs. Even if this does not appear to be quite so cheap and you have to pay higher premiums, it is still useful. You should also include an additional driver when concluding the contract if you are not travelling alone. Because even if you mainly want to drive yourself, there can still always be a situation in which another driver has to take the steering wheel. Even in such a case, it makes sense to take out comprehensive insurance without a deductible when taking out insurance for your hired car.

Why is a deposit required for hiring a car in Vienna?

A deposit is always required from the car hire company when hiring a car. Even if you search and find offers for rental cars on the Internet via price comparison, you must still pay a deposit. This is usually done via your credit card. As soon as you have returned the hired car, the deposit will be refunded. To do this, go to the airport car hire service and register for your car, which you have already booked via the Internet price comparison. Here you present your credit card and you will immediately receive the vehicle of your choice, which can be a small car, a family van or an SUV.

Explore Vienna and its city attractions

Vienna, the Smartcity with the highest quality of life is not only a special city for the locals. Once you have visited the capital of Austria, you want to come back again and again. This is where the charm of the coffee houses and modernity come together.

You can reach and visit many places of interest in your hired car. When you think of Vienna, of course, you are inevitably thinking of the Prater. This large amusement park and park with its largest attraction, the "Giant Ferris Wheel", is a must-see for every visitor to Vienna.

However, the variety of sights in Vienna is much greater. Some tourists, especially families with children, visit the zoo, while others prefer a trip to Schönbrunn Palace (big castle) or the Hofgarten. If you have looked for a cheap hired car in advance by comparing offers, you can reach all these locations quickly and easily.

Visit the cathedral and the castles

Of course, the Stephansdom cathedral should not be missing on your sightseeing tour through Vienna, because with its magnificent appearance it is an experience for everyone. After an extensive city tour with a rented car, the Stadtpark provides a little peace and quiet. Here you can stroll to your heart's content, enjoy the tranquillity and nature and get away from the hectic city life.

If you travel to Vienna without children, then it is, of course, possible to hire a car for a round trip from a museum to the museum in Vienna. There is something for every taste, the variety of museums in Vienna is endless. And after an eventful day in the city, you simply park your limousine in front of one of the many cafés in the city.
