The immediate proximity to the landscape of the Danube Canal and Wertheimstein Park, the view of the vineyards in the distance, the nearby university and the combined S-Bahn and underground station Wien Heiligenstadt provide a positive framework for an emerging urban residential and business district in the north of Vienna. "Donaupalast" offers a diverse social mix and a high quality of living in all the different types of apartments and common areas - thus offering a high degree of flexibility for future transformation.
