Relax on board and watch the landscape, and the sights such as the Danube Tower, Millennium Tower, the Ring Tower, the District Heating Plant Spittelau, the Urania Observatory, and many others, passing by. Experience navigating through one or two of the locks as the boat is raised or lowered where the water levels of the Danube differ because of the dams.

In a fantastic atmosphere with incomparable panoramic view, you can enjoy our delicacy in the restaurant on board. The food is freshly prepared and cooked on board.
