With the first rays of the sun the Donauinsel slowly awakens from its fairytale-like winter sleep. Not only the lushly green comes back to the island then, but also Vienna´s citizens make use of the nice spring weather for strolling about right next to the wild danube water.
For foreigners the idea of having an island directly in a megacity like Vienna seems certainly strange. The Donauinsel includes 42 kilometres of sand and is a nature reserve. Therefore the island provides a plenty of possibilities concerning leisure activities in the spring and summer months.
This summer the government realizes a huge project on the island: the leisure facilities will be extended. CopaBeach, a new relaxation area, will be introduced. CopaBeach has the distinction of being free of charge. Food and drinks will be provided from food drucks. CopaBeach will be one part of the new Copa Cagrana which will be implemented in the following months.
