We liked the friendly staff and that you could see a few sights from the water. Less nice were the long lock times and the unnecessarily long break as people get off who booked only a short tour. We were a little disappointed that you have seen more industry and graffiti than sights but for that the shipping company can nothing.

Booking was without problems. The ship offered enough seats for lunch. Both Wienerschnitzel and apple strudel tasted excellent! Very interesting route to get to know another side of Vienna, away from classic tourist crowds.

Good boat trip with a nice weather, lovely Danube. However, for a round trip of 3.5h, spent more time in ship lock and midi way stop than really navigating on the Danube. For online ticketing, easy process. However, not clear on where to go to take the boat. Overall, nice cruise!

Everything was perfect except the weather... in the restaurant it was too hot 🥵 there was an air conditioner but probably it was not working. And naybe it would be better if there is a music un the background. Thank you.

Very busy so couldn't sit outside. Sat inside. Seats were not very comfortable and the room was really hot (no air con). A lot of time was spent going through 2 locks and dropping people. Not that much to see to be honest.

A Glimpse of Vienna's Urban Evolution

Embark on a mesmerizing journey with the Grand Danube River Cruise, offering a unique perspective of Vienna's evolution. As your ship cruises past the Urania observatory, be captivated by Vienna's commitment to science and the stars. Make your way through the 'green heart' of Vienna, the Prater area, an oasis of tranquility amidst the bustling city. A highlight is a grain silo converted into a hotel, a testament to Vienna's innovative spirit. The journey then takes you past the Danube Island, a haven for nature lovers, before reaching the Reichsbrücke station.

Architectural Marvels and Culinary Delights on the Danube

Brace yourself for 'modern Vienna', a skyline boasting architectural marvels like the Danube Tower and Millennium Tower. As you glide through the Nussdorf lock system into the Danube Canal, you'll witness Vienna's historical charm.
