The Alte Donau has an excellent water quality. Recommended public baths at the Alte Donau are the Gaensehaeufel, a huge bath on an island with different swimming  pools for all ages and lots of sports activities and the Angelibad which suits especially smaller children. The entire out-of-town-side of the Alte Donau is a free swimming area for everybody, which can be best reached by U1 (Alte Donau), U6 (Neue Donau) or U2 (Donaustadtbruecke).
