The Danube Canal used to flow outside the city. However, since the regulation work that was carried out between 1868 and 1875, the minor arm of the Danube flows through the center of Vienna, connecting several of its districts. Leisure, recreation, natural habitat, nightlife, transport, art, and culture … the canal offers space for all of these. But how did this come about? And what continuities and new uses can be found here? This tour is devoted to individual buildings as well as to people, who have inscribed themselves in the landscape of the canal. It addresses not only the design and use of the public realm and aspects of nature and recreation in the city, but also such issues as exclusion and making space, as well as the associated political repression. So: What are you waiting for? Wade through the history of the canal, its banks, and its inhabitants with the festival’s outreach team!
