Planned doing a day visit to Bratislava while in Vienna and this was a fine method of getting there and seeing some of the Danube. Booked the 1000 departure for €30 each and it... read more

Perhaps the main disappointing thing about this cruise was its blatant disregard for those in Bratislava wanting to visit Vienna. With myself as one of them, we had always planned on visiting Vienna - but stayed in Bratislava instead to cut costs as the cities are practically next door to each other anyway. We thought that a cruise up the... More

The average review is more for the experience than the service. Couldn't fault the service, clean boat, good refreshments, ran on time. The stretch of the river from Vienna to Bratislava is not particularly picturesque so you don't get a lot for your money, however i would point out this is not the fault of the Twin City Liner. I...

Planned doing a day visit to Bratislava while in Vienna and this was a fine method of getting there and seeing some of the Danube. Booked the 1000 departure for €30 each and it took 90 minutes. The guy at the boat booking office at Vienna from the Bratislava tourist board was very helpful. Last boat back was too early... More

The TCL departs from Schwedenplatz near the underground of same name and transports you between the two closest Capital cities in Europe fairly quickly at a cost of up to 33 euro single depending on the time of day. It is a pleasant journey and is quicker on the journey from Vienna to Bratislava. If you really wish a full... More

We opted to take this boat between Vienna and Bratislava knowing some of the other reviews were not always favorable. We did not regret it, but do understand why others may not like this. There is very little to see from the boat along the shore to/from Vienna, however, it was still a pleasant journey and pleasant way to arrive... More

The tickets were expensive (25 euros one way per person) but worth it on a hot summer day when it's nice to enjoy the breeze on the sun deck.

If you in Vienna, and want a day trip, then look here! A quick and comfortable trip in a super fast Cat to Slovakia! The cost is ok, and it's very clean and easy. You land in Bratislava, a very short walk from the centre where you can arrange a tour or two, eat some Slovak food, drink some Slovak... More

The hydrofoil from the Schwedenplatz (Vienna) to the port of Bratislava was comfortable, with good views from the oversized seats and a snack bar with everything from soup to nuts and champagne (Proseco). The ride is smooth and on hot days the breeze out on deck is refreshing. The only bad thing is the snack bar personnel in the port... More

We took the Twin City Liner from Vienna to Bratislva. The seating is reasonably comfortable. The bath room facility was not adequate for the one hour trip. There is not that much to see around the river banks. Even if there were, I could not really stand on the top deck for more than a few minutes because of the... More

A little more expensive than the train or bus however much more interesting and novel. Lovely cooling breeze up on deck on a hot day was welcome. Drinks and snacks available on the boat. interesting views and would definitely recommend a visit to Vienna and think this is a great way of travelling between the two capitals
