Reach Bratislava in Just 75 Minutes on the Twin City Liner
River Danube cruise
Taking the Twin
City Liner along the Danube between Bratislava and Vienna is a perfectly gorgeous and super fun way to travel
between the two cities; especially during the summer. As you float down the
river you will have the chance to watch locals bring the riverside to life,
check out historical ruins, and even watch the busy water way commerce
happening right before your eyes. Barges will be passing left right and centre,
so make sure you give them a friendly wave.
the boat has left its moorings the deck is open for you to wander on. Let the
world pass you by as you cruise down the Danube, and be sure to enjoy the
on-board café, grab a beer, or glass of wine to accompany this perfect

mooring in Vienna is only a hop, skip, and a jump from Schwedenplatz U-Bahn
station so it’s easy to find, and speedy to board, while the stop-off in
Bratislava is just a few minutes’ walk from the centre of the capital. The
Slovakian capital is a city rich in history; wander the beautiful and charming
old town or look down over it all from Bratislava Castle. If you’ve had enough
history, it’s a great town for shopping, too.
The trip costs a bit more than the
train, but it’s a very different experience, preferred by many. The journey
takes little over an hour as the boat can be pretty speedy along its course down the
river, but you can travel in complete comfort, and take in all the views from
the seating in the liner’s rooftop.
Discounted tickets are easy to pick up online and you can collect them at the
dockside. This trip is great for families, couples, or even commuters who are
tired of relying on the train!
