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.

With wonderful sunshine and 30 degrees, it was a pleasant tour. Well, there wasn't much to see from the water, but the river trip was enjoyed. I cannot and would not really recommend this tour to others. Everyone has to decide for himself, based on the description, like us. Staff very friendly and the prices for food and drinks are "normal."

For these special times the ship was well attended on a Tuesday. Unfortunately there were few seats in the outside area, which would certainly have been desirable in the pleasant weather. Only when changing stations were some places available again. The supply on board was sufficient and the prices reasonable.

Was kinda interesting cruise with nice food and drink options. A smooth, romantic trip through the wonderful Danube. The boat was well heated and big enough to allow you move and take pictures from different areas. The only drawbacks would be the commentary which should've been done using audio devices instead of the loud speakers, and also the lengthy time we spent in the small river bank twice waiting for the bridge to open.
