Excursion to Dürnstein | A Sunday excursion to the beautiful Wachau with the elegant MS Kaiserin Elisabeth.

Every Saturday and Sunday there is a boat trip from Vienna via Tulln to Dürnstein. Enjoy the boat trip and the wonderful view of the surrounding villages, meadows and forests. The destination of the trip is the picturesque Dürnstein, with the blue church tower over which the historic ruin Dürnstein towers. The former castle served as the prison of the English King Richard the Lionheart. At the beginning of the journey from our Vienna / Marina station, we continue along the Vienna skyline, past Kahlenberg and Klosterneuburg Abbey. Via Korneuburg and along the garden city of Tulln, we continue to Krems and Dürnstein. The two-hour break at the destination offers time for walking and exploring. The large outer deck with the 360 ° all-round view invites you to stroll and the interior of the newest member of the DDSG Blue Danube fleet, with two bars on the two decks, impresses with its maritime flair. The combined price includes an extended continental breakfast, a lunch snack, an afternoon snack and an evening buffet.
