How To Go There

Because space is very limited – and so are parking spots – the best way to go to Donauinselfest is by taking the public transport. The metro lines U6 and U1 will bring you directly to the festival, for that the Wiener Linien are shortening their train intervals to 3 minutes. The metros will be in operation the whole night (with longer intervals from 2 am). 

Closest stops are: U1 Donauinsel, U6 Handelskai or Neue Donau, Tram 31 Floridsdorfer Brücke
