Vienna is perhaps the most popular port on Danube River cruises, and with good reason. Wander through the tranquil Viennese streets full of music, art and cafes, which have made it a cradle of European culture, claiming such great minds as Beethoven, Mozart, and Sigmund Freud. Explore the city's museums and architectural masterpieces like Schönbrunn & Hofburg Palaces and climb to the top of Saint Stephens Church for a breathtaking view of the city. From Vienna, your Danube River cruise will take you down river towards nearby Bratislava, Slovakia and onward to Budapest, Hungary. Voyaging up river will take you to Krems, Durnstein, Melk (and its impressive Abbey), and Linz, Austria. Myriad Danube River cruises start and/or end in Vienna so contact us for help selecting the perfect cruise on the Danube to Vienna.

Vienna Highlights
The capital city of Austria, Vienna is home to thousands of years of culture and has also served as an important part of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire. Throughout the centuries, it has expaned into a modern city, but the relics of its storied past are well preserved visitor sites like:
  • Schönbrunn Palace – an expansive palace that served as the summer home for the royal family; although it was the summer residence, its relevance as a Baroque landmark in Austria's architectural and cultural history sets it above most other buildings in Vienna.
  • Hofburg Palaces – built in the 13th century, it has been the imperial seat for more than 800 years
  • Grinzing – this neighborhood is most famous for its taverns, where you will experience a true flavor of the region as you sample its delicious locally grown and crafted wines and beers.
Before or after your trip to Vienna, your Danube River cruise will likely take you to the Wachau Valley, and on to Switzerland, Hungary, Romania, or other destinations on this long and winding river.
