Original post buy Ron:
It will get hot again and there is nothing like a cool swim and an ice at the end of the day to make it all good again. I've been to this spothttp://tinyurl.com/2vkv3jx
several times this summer and, while not, plush, I highly recommend it. There are steps to get down to the water, a picnic table to sit at, a nearby grassy spot (tho a bit trashy), close by public transport (U6 Neue Donau), and an excellent Ice Cafe & a highly recommended and popular outdoor Cafe just above. The water is warmish and if you actually swim, its about 200M to the other side. Several crossings make a decent workout. Nearby boat rentals too. Yeah, the water is, um, quite organic with some seaweed encounters, I've gotten over it. So what'ya think? Want to meet here some evening after work? Or towards the end of a weekend day?
BTW, if you know of other decent swim spots, pls let me know.
