Full description
Experience Vienna on board the MS Wien and MS Vindobona ships. The MS Vindobona was lovingly designed by artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser and with its distinctive coloring is now one of the city’s attractions itself. Let the Viennese scenery pass by on the Great Danube Tour and enjoy “green Vienna” (route A) and “modern Vienna” (route B).

This tour starts at the Vienna/City station at Schwedenplatz, passing the Urania observatory and continues through the ‘green heart’ of Vienna and the woods of the Prater area. Downstream from the Freudenau lock, the ship docks at the Marina Wien station. Following the shores of the Danube Island and past a grain silo that was converted into a hotel and a stadium, your tour continues to the Reichsbrücke station.

From the Reichsbrücke or Marina Wien station onwards, see ‘modern Vienna’ with its Danube plateau skyline, Danube Tower, and Millenium Tower. Via the Nussdorf lock system, reach the Danube Canal, where you will experience ‘historic Vienna,’ as well as the interesting architecture of the The Hundertwasser District Heating Plant in Spittelau, the Roßau Barracks, Ringturm, the Urania observatory, and much more. The tour terminates in Vienna’s center at Schwedenplatz station.
