Shame the weather wasn't better for us today, but we still enjoyed the one way trip from Vienna to Bratislava. We did the train for the return trip (€13 each one way). The boat was very comfortable and was on time. The centre of Bratislava is only 10 min walk from where the boat drops you off. This is worth... More

The liner is a large high-speed boat, which travels from central Vienna to central Bratislava in little more than an hour. Its wharf in Vienna is in front of the Schwedenplatz subway station; in Bratislava, it is at walking distance from the historical center. The boot seating area is quite spacious. There is not much to see during the trip,... More

It was a cloudy day, took this Twin City Liner in the morning from Vienna to Bratislava. We bought the tickets online but it did not help us saving time to get on board.. We had to wait on the long queue in order to get our actual tickets from the printed confirmation. Not surprising, it was not fast, there... More

Really enjoyed the one hour (+) trip to Bratislava. Spent several hours knocking around Old Town - wish tI had time to spend a night there - maybe another trip. I had the Captain's Lounge seats as that was all that was available for my cruise. It was nice but not worth the additional cost. The general seating is quite... More

Took this service from Vienna to Bratislava and returned that night. Enjoyed the boat ride. We booked directly at the ticket office in Vienna. We went in October and had no trouble booking the return trip after arriving in Bratislava. But I imagine in peak season this might be more difficult. Drinks available onboard coffee, beer soft drink and some... More

Since we couldn't take our rental car into Slovenia, we decided to make a day trip via this cruise. Very restful cruise, although I wish I had spent the extra money to sit in the front. I enjoyed the view from my side window - the fishermen's huts, castles, etc. But I think I would have loved the front row... More

Simply as a mode of transportation alone, I would not recommend it over the regular 13-euro return train ticket from Vienna. But in our case, it made logistical sense. Our accommodation is only minutes from Schwedenplatz, so it saves us the time and trouble of having to get ourselves to the Hauptbahnhof for the train. The jetty in Bratislava is... More

Taking a boat from Bratislava to Vienna proved to be a great way of travelling between the two cities. There are alternatives of course, but this proved to be one of many highlights of our holiday (we were visiting Budapest, Bratislava, Melk (the Wachau) & Vienna). Ticket purchase on the DDSG website and collection of the actual tickets at the... More

It was an interesting day. One is advised to purchase their ticket online before so all you have to do is present your printout and receive your ticket for the chosen services. The actual trip on the twin hulled boat was interesting and the brief commentary was adequate and in multiple languages. As one was "asking a question" the answer... More

We were looking at ways to travel from Bratislava to Vienna, and as soon as we realised it was possible by boat rather than train, the decision became a lot easier. We opted for Twin City Liner - though more expensive of the two boat companies on offer, the timing suited us better. We were not disappointed, and were happy... More
