Grand Danube Tour


Take the two ships MS Vindobona and MS Wien through Vienna. The MS Vindobona was lovingly designed by the artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser and with its distinctive colour scheme is now one of the sights of the city itself. The MS Vienna is a city ship of the extra class. Let the Viennese scenery pass by during the Great Danube Tour and enjoy the "green Vienna" (Route A) and the "modern Vienna" (Route B). Relax in our cosy on-board restaurants with Viennese delicacies and enjoy the sun and the view from the open deck.
