Arrive at Shipstation City port ready to relax and take in the sights on your 75-minute cruise. Having booked in advance, you're guaranteed a spot on this Danube River cruise, which is very popular during the height of summer.

This comprehensive tour of the landmarks on the banks of the Danube includes the benefit of insightful commentary from an onboard guide. Learn about Vienna's rich history, culture, and architecture while you travel. Unobstructed views make for great photos, including the colorful Spittelau waste plant designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser, the Zaha Hadid-House, Otto Wagner’s Schützenhaus, and the floating swimming pool on a ship called Badeschiff Vienna.

Return to Shipstation City after 75 minutes, refreshed and ready to continue exploring the city.
