When I spoke of “family changes” in the first episode of My podcast, nothing less than the birth of my daughter was mentioned. This beautiful event has changed our lives from the ground up-and of course we want to give this new person as much of our own sense of movement and adventure as possible. In the first weeks after birth, however, this is not easy for physical reasons alone, and the weather (snow and minus temperatures) was also not conducive to our motivation. After all, we did what we would recommend to all other parents with newborns in the first weeks: walks in the immediate neighbourhood, so in our case the enamel and Schönbrunn Palace. Now, three weeks after the birth, we have ventured our first major stroll with prams: the Danube Island.
Strolling with prams on the Danube Island is a must for all because the route is flat and the paths are paved. Moreover, in contrast to the Mariahilfer Straße, the area is not particularly overflowing, which makes navigation with the new vehicle easier. In summer the Meadows invite you to lie down, the water for swimming. There are plenty of toilets, free Wi-Fi, a wide range of gastronomy (fun fact: After years of controversy the Copa Kagrana is now radically rebuilt) and many playgrounds for children of different age groups.
The arrival is also relatively easy, but the island can be reached in three different places with the lines U6, U1 and U2. What is challenging is only what we have tried in our boundless naivety: to arrive with the Sbahn via Handelskai-who does this, he has to look for a lift longer; In our case we had to go into the shopping center of the Millenium Tower, go there with the elevator, then annoy us about a broken elevator and haul our stroller over stairs. The Journey Through the U6 (new Danube), U1 (Danube Island) or U2 (Danube City Bridge) is much less complicated.
In general, it is advisable to always check which lifts of the Viennese lines are currently defective before the departure. Live information can be found at this link.
