Make your own way to Shipstation City port and hop aboard the MS Blue Danube to begin your Danube city sightseeing cruise in Vienna. Settle into the plush indoor salon or grab a seat on the sundeck as you set sail along the scenic Danube Canal.

Keep your camera to hand as you pass architectural marvels like Otto Wagner’s Schützenhaus and the historic Rossauer Baracks, and listen to the on-board commentary as you pass landmarks like the modernist Zaha Hadid-House and the colorful Spittelau waste plant, designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser. Pass the famous Badeschiff Vienna, a ‘floating’ swimming pool situated on a ship, and catch sight of the striking Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom hotel, the creation of architect Jean Nouvel.

Boring, nothing to see, only industrial area near Danube canal (it is not Danube river!). I do not recomend this cruise.

What a waste of money. Dirty smelly water and NOTHING to see. A rude waiter who charged me €5.40 for a coffee. Hire a bike and ride down the canal a least you could stop when you wanted.
Very good

Went at 16h00 as that was only one available. Although dark, you would have thought they would have given more information - poor sound quality so you could not even hear what was being said although you could read off the tv screen!! Literally went up the canal, turned round and went back. Music in the background would have been nice.
Nice trip

Peaceful trip at Donau with restaurant to shop drinks and food if wanted. It was a very hot and sunny day, lovely to spend the hotest hour on the river.

The tour was great - wish for a longer one. One VERY IMPORTANT THING - after the purchase of the tour I received the indications that the only thing to do is print the voucher. We arrived half an hour earlier and at the boarding they told us to go quickly upstairs and exchange the voucher on real tickets ... So this is an important information that must be on your voucher.
