Description

Explore the Austrian capital from the water on this 75-minute Danube Canal sightseeing cruise in Vienna. Choose the tour time to suit your schedule, then cruise along the Danube Canal as an audio-guide brings Vienna’s history to life. Admire landmarks including Badeschiff Vienna, Otto Wagner’s Schützenhaus, the Rossauer Baracks, and Zaha Hadid-House, and gain insight into the architectural styles for which the city is famous.

Choose an 11am, 1pm, 2:30pm, or 4pm sightseeing tour, then hop aboard your sightseeing boat in Vienna’s Shipstation City port to begin your 75-minute cruise. Take a seat in the welcoming indoor salon or on the sundeck, and take to the calm waters of the pretty Danube Canal.

Cruise along the river and admire fine views over top Vienna attractions including Otto Wagner’s Schützenhaus and the imposing Rossauer Baracks — built to protect the city against uprisings following the 1848 Revolution. Along the way, listen as the on-board commentary sheds light on landmarks such as the contemporary Zaha Hadid-House and Friedensreich Hundertwasser's intriguingly designed Spittelau waste plant.

Enjoy sweeping views over sites of interest like the famous Badeschiff Vienna — a ‘floating’ swimming pool on a long barge — and the impressive Sofitel Vienna Stephansdom hotel, designed by architect Jean Nouvel.

When your 75-minute round-trip cruise comes to an end, alight back at your starting point to conclude your tour.
