Day trip to Vienna cost €30 for the front (most expensive) seats. There are cheaper ways to get there but this is definately the best and most fun way to arrive and to see the Danube. If you booked a river cruise with a fancy travel company it would cost 20 times more and I doubt it would be any... More

We originally planned to take the train to Vienna however the boat was faster, taking into account it left from the city centre, and the views were far better. It was a great trip. I'd recommend paying the extra to book the front row seats. Extra leg room and comfort.

I took a trip on Twin City Liner in mid-September 2016 and had purchased my tickets well in advance as my wife and I made our way from Vienna to Bratislava as part of a trip through Central Europe.

For my 89's mother's birthday, I had bought 2 tickets from Bratislava to Vienna but they did not allow us on their boat because I did not have an identity paper. They sent us back, at our expanses, by bus. (You don't need any identity papers by train or bus.. as logical since we are in Europe) On their long... More

This excursion was booked by our hotel through Vienna Sightseeing. We wanted to leave Bratislava on the 2:30 boat, rather than the 4:00 boat which was booked in advance. Despite wide availability on the earlier boat, the staff refused to help us unless we paid again the full fare. That and the paucity of information from Vienna Sightseeing on what... More

The travel by boat from Viena to Bratislava is very interesting and with a beautiful view but be careful. The staff are not helpful. The boy sold us a ticket ($35,00 each) of a boat that leave immediately and we lost it, and when we went to trade the ticket he sold us a more expensive one ($40,00 each) and... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
