Danube Ahoi!

Discover and experience the Danube by boat

Many important European cities developed along the banks of major rivers and stretches of coast. Their strategic location has made them important centres of regional and national economic activity. In times when airplanes, cars and railways were still a thing of the future, the only way to transport people and goods was by land – often a burdensome and high-risk task – and by shipping. Nowadays, travelling on the Danube is a wonderful experience that allows you to discover current and past economic centres in comfort.
