Highlights
  • Sightseeing cruise on the Danube gives a different perspective on Vienna

What to Expect
Arrive at Shipstation City port ready to relax and take in the sights on your 75-minute cruise. Having booked in advance, you're guaranteed a spot on this Danube River cruise, which is very popular during the height of summer. Find a spot on the outdoor deck or in the plush indoor salon as the boat takes off. This comprehensive tour of the landmarks on the banks of the Danube includes the benefit of insightful commentary from an onboard guide. Learn about Vienna's rich history, culture, and architecture while you travel. Unobstructed views make for great photos, including the colorful Spittelau waste plant designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser, the Zaha Hadid-House, Otto Wagner’s Schützenhaus, and the floating swimming pool on a ship called Badeschiff Vienna. Return to Shipstation City after 75 minutes, refreshed and ready to continue exploring the city.

We only did this because it was included in our 3 days 'Big Bus Hop On Hop Off' ticket. It was cancelled the first two days we tried to do it and on reflection, I am sorry it wasn't cancelled on the third day too. The boat is nice enough and thankfully, a large glass of white

Vienna is a lovely city filled with immense palaces, grand buildings and fabulous squares. You'll see none of this from this cruise along the Danube Canal. Instead you can admire the ugly side of the city. If you like concrete, you'll love this! The only redeeming feature is the

The trip is boring as hell. Almost no explanation of the buildings you can see from the boat (and no many important buildings can be seen from the boat). You better spend your time in anything else.
