What’s going on along the Donaukanal

The Donaukanal has thoroughly changed in the past few years: numerous bars and restaurants have sprung up, leisure uses have flourished and the Donaukanal has attracted the attention of local people and investors. PlanSinn drew up a spatial and user analysis as a basis for a future furnishing and equipment concept.

The spatial and user analysis was based on observations, field interviews and interviews with experts.
Some results:

· The current users of the open space along the Donaukanal are generally happy with the status quo; indeed, they like the stark contrasts and differences found there.
· Users differ greatly from classical park users: The main group of users consists of physically fit adults aged between 20 and 50. Physical activities such as jogging, cycling and walking are the central uses.
