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.

A very nice and harmonious experience.

Culture and nature meet. In addition to graffiti and urban buildings of which the most important are presented via speakers you can see traces of the beavers, and in the middle of the city. Also two herons and many other birds were to be observed. Attentive service in the restaurant and also blankets against the cold rounded the trip to a very nice experience.
