This river cruise was part of our Vienna pass places of interest. We were glad we did it to see another side of the Danube river. The graffiti art along the river banks would not be very visible from land. There is a commentary (translated...More

Make sure you read the brochure of the tour and ask what tour you are going to book. They have a couple of different tours. Even though the one we took said "DDSD Blue Danube" We only had a quick tour on a canal, not...More

Really interesting to see a different side of Vienna. The ship lock was quite an eye opener, especially in the small(ish) boat entering the very large lock.

Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The

pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current
hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative
crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city centre and
take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old

For an 80 yo maybe it is a gentle cruise. You are right it is not the real Danube. But to answer your question, do other things if you are there for such a short time. ( the house of music, schonbrunn palace. ) you must... More

Take the metro-line U3 (orange line) which is very close to Kirchengasse and at Stephansplatz you change to U1 (red line) which stops at the VIC (Kaisermühlen / VIC). This is in my view the most effective way.

Yes, you purchase at the train station in Vienna. Travel to Melk by train, to Krems by Blue Dsnube, to Vienna (different stAtion) by train. A day trip / three choices of time.
