View from Donauturn (Danube Tower) to Donauinsel (Danube Island), Kahlenberg and Leopoldsberg, Florido Tower and Floridsdorf.
Kahlenberg is a hill (484 meters or 1588 ft) and lies in the north-eastern foothills of the Eastern Alps, next to the Leopoldsberg.
On top of the Kahlenberg is a 165-meter high steel tower that serves as the transmitter for the ORF, the Austrian Broadcast Corporation.
The Leopoldsberg (425 meters or 1394 ft) is perhaps Vienna's most famous hill, towering over the Danube and the city. Leopoldberg's most prominent landmark is the Leopoldskirche (St. Leopold's Church) which stands at the top, and which is clearly visible from Vienna below.
The Donauinsel (Danube Island) is a long, narrow island, in central Vienna, between the Danube river and the parallel excavated
channel Neue Donau (New Danube). The island is 21.1 km (13.1 mi) in length, but is only 70–210 metres (230–690 ft) broad.
The New Danube waterway is practically an elongated (swimming) lake, technically a diluvian bed.
In the middle you see the Florido Tower, build between 1999 and 2001, an office skyscraper in the 21st district of Vienna Floridsdorf.
With a height of 113 metres (371 ft), this office complex is a distinctive building in North Vienna.
