Full description
Embark on a boat trip along the Danube Canal through the historical and modern city of Vienna. Once known as the “Vienna Water,” the “Vienna Arm," and the “Little Danube," this route of today’s Danube Canal was the main arm of the Danube in the Middle Ages. On this tour, see important buildings including the Uniqa Tower, the Urania Observatory, hotels and commercial buildings by Jean Nouvel, and the Media Tower by Hans Hollein. Take a look at the Schützenhaus by Otto Wagner, the Ringturm, the Rossauer Barracks, and the waste incineration plant of Spttelau designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser. Below the lock, the boat turns around and heads back to the starting point. Let the new Vienna and its countless graffiti art pieces and trendy areas enchant you as they pass by.

The meeting point, there is a public bus stop. Transport in the immediate vicinity. The ticket can be exchanged on the 1st floor at the above address, which is very easy and uncomplicated. The ride was pleasant. Going upstream takes longer than going back the same distance. There are not many sights but it is relaxed. The waiter was quick and friendly. I can't comment on the food as we only drank.

This was a pleasant trip on a slow-moving boat on the Danube Canal. The scenery that could be viewed from the boat during the trip was not especially beautiful or impressive, but the views were nice enough and the trip was relaxing. The food and drink service from our waiter on the boat during the trip was excellent.

Not much view tbh. I would recommend choosing a timeslot at around 9 pm so you can view the sunset. I booked 5:30 pm so I didn't get to watch the sunset. I didn't choose the package that includes food, but you can bring food to the boat and enjoy it during the tour.
