By ship

Among the fruitful vineyards, flowering apricot trees and old cultural relics – discover Lower Austria by ship!

Artfully planted vineyards, which are close enough to touch, are alternated with endless plains and impressive buildings. Lower Austria will surprise you with a new, contrasting landscape around each river bend!

A cruise on the Danube through Wachau is a treat for the senses. Breathe in floral scents, let the breeze into your lungs, enjoy a glass of wine, and admire Melk Abbey from the water.
