Danube Bike and Barge Tours



A  bike barge trip along the Danube is a very special experience as your hotel on the water is always with you! Slightly downhill and most of the time with a helpful tailwind, you will be exposed to the impressive river-meanders of the Donauschlinge (“Great Loop”) as well as the gorgeous landscape of the legendary Wachau. Also you will explore Europe’s Capital of Culture 2009, the city of Linz in Upper Austria. And finally Vienna, an explosion of interesting places and culture! A city hard to describe as you just have to live it for yourself! Sights like the St. Stephen’s Cathedral, the Town Hall (Rathaus) and the world’s oldest Ferris Wheel (Riesenrad) are easy to reach during a wonderful sightseeing tour by bike. To stroll around the Naschmarkt (famous food market) is a cultural and culinary adventure you will never forget.

Your floating hotel is MS Primadonna. It is the second largest cruise ship on the Danube. Experience the elegance of the MS Primadonna with spacious decks, wellness, restaurant, bar, atrium and much more at a bike tour without hotel change! The Primadonna is waiting for you daily at the end of your trip. You can also enjoy the day on board – on the sun deck with whirlpool or in the wellness-area with whirlpool, sauna & Kneipp water-treading basin. In the kitchen, we emphasize using regional Austrian products – all dishes are prepared fresh on board. The MS Primadonna is the only cruise ship under Austrian flag.

We have reserved 10 cabins on the Promenade and upper deck for select sailings in 2020. Act quickly as these tours fill up well in advance.
