Old Danube Vienna – Alte Donau Wien

The old Danube is a former branch of the Danube River. And the whole area is an interesting blend auf urban cityscape and almost rural houses alongside the lake. In summertime my friend and host Gerald rents a small apartment at the shore, to swim every day for at least an hour, sometimes getting tickled by the water plants under his belly. Now it’s too cold to swim, but the golden light in the afternoon is a reminder of summer.
