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.

The beginning in the Danube Canal is a bit monotonous, you often only see green embankments. But things get interesting on the Danube, the announcements could be more frequent and more accurate, and whether the object is on the left or the right is missing. The catering wasn't great, our table was dirty from the previous guest and it stayed that way. The young man was obviously a little overwhelmed, he often didn't show up, but he was very friendly. All in all we liked it.

Beautiful tour on the Danube. You just have to pay attention to the departure because the ticket office where to change the voucher is not well indicated, it is located on the first floor of the building above the docks even if it seems to belong to another company ... The tour starts on the canal adjacent to the Danube, you pass two closed (half an hour each), very hot in the wait if it is summer and you are on the pier at the top. Food and drinks are served on board for a fee.

Very relaxing and quiet cruise. My wife and I did the 10 o'clock in the morning cruise with less than 25 other people. There is room for you if you want to be in the sun or staying out of the rain. We had a light lunch with a glass of wine which was excellent.
