Full description
Embark on a boat trip along the Danube Canal through the historical and modern city of Vienna. Once known as the “Vienna Water,” the “Vienna Arm," and the “Little Danube," this route of today’s Danube Canal was the main arm of the Danube in the Middle Ages. On this tour, see important buildings including the Uniqa Tower, the Urania Observatory, hotels and commercial buildings by Jean Nouvel, and the Media Tower by Hans Hollein. Take a look at the Schützenhaus by Otto Wagner, the Ringturm, the Rossauer Barracks, and the waste incineration plant of Spttelau designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser. Below the lock, the boat turns around and heads back to the starting point. Let the new Vienna and its countless graffiti art pieces and trendy areas enchant you as they pass by.

The boat was comfortable enough and it was quite pleasant going along the Danube canal. The 70 minute trip does not get to the Danube itself but stops and turns round at the lock. There is not much to see in the way of historic buildings, since most such buildings in Vienna are not sufficiently close to the canal. There was a commentary in German and English but on the trip there were only half a dozen points of interest covered by the commentary and one of those was a discussion of the canal itself. We were invited to use the Boat's wifi for more information but neither my wife nor I could make it work as there was no internet access.

Boat trip on the Danube CHANNEL and not on the Danube as I thought it would be. In the reservation it was clearly written "Canal", but not knowing that in Vienna there is a difference between the canal and the Danube, I mistakenly thought I was on the Danube. However, the tour is pleasant.

The exchange of the card on site was quick and uncomplicated. I had ordered the schnitzel with the ticket. The service was very attentive and friendly. The schnitzel came promptly and the taste was great. The trip was very pleasant, the ship was fortunately not too full for us, so that everyone had enough space and could enjoy the view. A nice quiet activity!
