    Hello!
    Sorry for the use of English language, but my German is more or less only Google Translate good.
    On Friday and Saturday (07.12. & 08.12.) I will be in Vienna and will most probably have my folding kayak with me. On google I have found a Donaukanal trip description. Since I prefer to paddle than shop I would like to make a couple of tours in the two days I have available.
    I was thinking of doing the Donaukanal on one day and Neue Donau on the other day. I plan to use public transportation for getting to the start and return to the city. But I can also go by car if necessary. We will be staying in 3rd Bezirk.
    Since I know nothing about paddling in Vienna, could I ask any of you to be so kind and let me know some basic information - especially if it is allowed to paddle there, where to get in / out, any other or different recommendations as where to paddle, any dangers ...
    And what is the current water level situation.
    I would be most grateful for your help.
    Best regards from Ljubljana,
    Boris

    Ahoi Boris,
    we´ve done this 2 years ago, see the pictures:
    Diashow starten
    We had strong west wind and were very happy about a taxi from the east end of the donauinsel to the alte donau / Gänsehäufel. So we dit it in one day.
    Best contact for folding kayaks in vienna is bölli matthias, I send your text  to him.
    Have a good time,
    Stefan

    Ahoi Boris,
    appended you will find the detail of the first kilometers of the donaukanal.
    You will see at schwedenplatz the twin city liner, now in winter leaving on saturday, sunday and holiday at 10:00 and returning at 18:30. Be carefull, the twin is driving fast!
    Here the map: maps.google.at/maps?q=schwedenplatz&hl=de&ll=48.211877,16.379414&spn=0.005555,0.012274&sll=48.116835,13.87012&sspn=2.849383,6.28418&t=h&hnear=Schwedenplatz&z=17
    Also take care of the fast streaming ( max 6-8km/h ) and always paddle with the stream.
    Best reguards,
    Stefan

    Liebe Paddler, lt. Info der Schifffahrtsbehörde ist der Donaukanal derzeit gesperrt, weil Arbeiten stattfinden...... und Seile gespannt sind.
    Unser VereinsFeuerwehrkommandant hat das als Info wegen einer Nachtfahrt herausgefunden. Bis Ende Jänner.
    LG

    a member has asked for a translation of his post, and it's an important warning for you:
    the agency for river traffic has announced that the Donaukanal is closed due to work being undertaken - there are ropes/cables strung across the Donaukanal until the end of January
