Every day


The boat taxi

One of the most unique features of the Donaukanaltreiben is the boat taxi. Hopping from stage to stage throughout the festival is this little yellow boat chugging its way along the Donaukanal. It comes in real handy when the masses of people crowded on the canal makes the task of getting from one side of the canal to the other like passing through somebodies slimy and sweaty intestines. Jump on the boat and be sure to wear your pirates hat.

 

The food and craft markets

Where: next to the Salztorbrücke
When: THU–SUN, May 25–28, 12pm-12am

While the many bars along the Donaukanal will take care of the drinks, a herd of food trucks will be set up under the bridge where you can satisfy your appetite. There will also be stands set up selling all kinds of artisan craft and design products. In the late afternoon to early evening, there will also be Jazz bands supplying some background music to your waterside feast and shop.
