Full description
From the end of March to the beginning of November, the proud red-and-white fleet will take you on a daily leisurely cruise through the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Wachau. A boat trip through the Wachau is an experience in every season. In spring, the apricot and fruit trees are in full bloom, whilst in the summer drive past baroque monasteries and medieval castles under a bright blue sky. In in the autumn, you can see a natural spectacle when the vineyards turn red-gold and shimmer in the afternoon sun. Your ship will allow you to travel in comfort through Wachau. These ships have huge sundecks with plenty of seating, as well as a partial roof and a beautiful all-around view which contribute to the perfect experience. Let yourself be pampered in the onboard restaurants, where a varied food and beverage package offered. The menu focuses on regional products and modern interpretations of Wachau classics, such as a summer salad with apricot pieces.

Booked online, which was relatively easy, paid via Klarna. But you can also buy tickets on the spot. Direct parking possibility, we paid 9 euros for about 6 hours..which I think is quite a lot, but you are right there and don't have to walk far. So if you're not so good on foot, this is a great option. The trip itself was very nice, the ship was clean and very modern and stylish. The staff was very friendly, both on the MS Wachau and on the MS Dürnstein. Food tasted good too. Come back for sure.

Lovely boat tour around the river. Good food, nice atmosphere

The only thing we wish is that where we had to go to get tickets was more explained to us in advance. I was led to believe that we could print our tickets at home. Thankfully a stranger helped us not only find the dock our boat would be at but suggest we go ask upstairs at the ticket office. After that all went well. Thank you

Nice boat trip, excellent value for money food

Mobile voucher was not immediately accepted, while it was on the website. They had to have a printed version. Eventually emailed the tickets to them so that they could print. Checking in was not really smooth and friendly ... Food was fine, service too. You have to love music, but it gives atmosphere. The disadvantage is that you sit with other people at a table (8 people). After dinner I sat outside, delicious!
