Gaensehaeufl

A century old historical place where you can see and watch masses of real Viennese people!

The 100 year old lido in Vienna, where you can swim in the Danube, is the best spot to watch masses of real Viennese people. In a way it is an adventure. The bath was founded by Florian Berndl in 1907 and back then had tongues wagging as it encouraged revealing bathing-culture. It was destroyed after WW II and then rebuilt. After the war it was a hot spot to flirt and meet people. Until today it is a symbol of historical, cultural and artistic importance in Vienna. Open from May to September.
