Donauturm Slide - Europe's highest slide offers an adrenaline rush

The Danube Tower Slide, Europe's highest slide, is enthroned at an impressive 165 metres above the Danube Tower. This art project by internationally renowned German object artist Carsten Höller offers visitors a fascinating art adventure: daredevils can slide down the northern outer side of the tower from the middle floor through the semi-transparent artwork to the viewing level at a height of 150 metres and get an adrenaline rush as well as a breathtaking view.

The installation took place on 3 October 2023 in a spectacular helicopter operation and will give the Viennese landmark a new, temporary silhouette for at least three years.

The slide can only be used with a valid admission ticket and is secured by a traffic light control system and video surveillance.

Subdued lighting of the artwork ensures not only the aesthetic experience but also safety.
