Enjoyment is guaranteed onboard the two gleaming white ships of BRANDNER Cruises as the journey, through the wild romantic Wachau, is transformed into a very special experience.

On board the MS Austria, the excursion ship with the golden crown, you can experience the World Heritage Site, the Wachau, with daily departures from Logenplatz. Exceptionally large panoramic windows, spacious and light rooms, a stylish lounge and two sun decks invite you to relax and enjoy the views.

A “Nautical Spirit” and tasteful ambience, culinary delicacies from the best onboard kitchen, exquisite local wines including a selection from our own BRANDNER winery which is located in Rossatz, provide for daily pleasure on the river.

Tip: The air-conditioned indoor area also offers free WiFi.

NEW: The recently opened restaurant “Die Flößerei in Rossatz”, located on the right side of the Danube and in the middle of the luscious green vineyards, offers you a stunning view over Dürnstein. Open: 14 April – 7 October 2018
