Austria River Cruises
Explore Austria’s enchanting landscapes with a TUI River Cruise on the majestic Danube, weaving culture and history along its banks.
Where we sail in Austria
Austria might be landlocked, but the Danube River waltzes its way across the north of the nation, making it the perfect river cruise destination. Austria river cruises showcase beauty personified – both natural and manmade. You can move from the lavish palaces of Vienna to the rolling hills and vineyards of the UNESCO-listed Wachau Valley. Here, the journey’s just as important as the destination. On a river cruise through Austria, you’ll stop at under-the-radar towns in some scenic settings. Durnstein’s one of them – it’s right in the heart of the Wachau Valley, surrounded by vineyard-covered slopes.
Cosy towns to capitals
Another picture-perfect spot is Melk – here, the best views come into shot from the town’s abbey. Just around the corner from Durnstein, Krems is another place not in the guidebooks. It’s a top spot for a relaxed stroll and a glass of locally grown Riesling. City-wise, capital Vienna’s the most talked-about. And its grand architecture and atmospheric coffeehouses don’t disappoint. But waiting in the wings is Linz. Churches and Baroque buildings fill the main square, while the riverfront’s dominated by hi-tech museums.
