It may be highly unlikely that you will be lost for things to do in Vienna but it really is worth taking a half day to visit Bratislava. The twin city liner is NOT the cheapest way to go, 60 euro return, but the comfort of the ride and the ease of access at both ends does make it worth... More

We took a trip from Bratislava to Vienna and were very happy we didn't take the round journey. The price for one way is 30 euros and it's far too much for 1,5 hours trip considering that besides the nice view to Bratislava, one small town on Austrian border and few fishermen's huts near Vienna, there is not much to...

I had very high expectations from this mode of transport from Bratislava to Vienna, due to the high rating given by many people. However, I was overwhelmed with disappointment. To start with: the reason why I chose to travel by boat was because I wanted relax sitting on a comfortable chair while enjoying nice views of nature. Thanks to the... More

We had to go to Bratislava for a sport championship from Vienna. We took the twin city liner to make vienna - Bratislava. ~35 euros per persons single fare is not cheap at all ( ~12 euros by train) but the boat is very very confortable. You can pay 5 additional euros to be in the front row. We didn't... More

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
