We debated whether to take this trip during a four day stay in Vienna but were glad we did. The journey itself was quick and comfortable though the scenery a little dull. We thoroughly enjoyed our few hours in the old city of Bratislva. The people we met were so warm and welcoming and food and drink very reasonable. A... More

We took the hydrofoil from Vienna to Bratislava and the coach back in the evening. There wasn't much to see as there isn't much habitation on that section of the Danube, only trees and bushes at the riverside, but it is quite quick and it's not too expensive. The piers in both cities are easy walking distances to the centre,... More

Bratislava to Vienna in 70 minutes or so by boat. It had to be done. And we were really lucky, the weather was gorgeous so we could happily walk outside, have a beer and a sandwich and relax as we sped down the river. It is not the most scenic of cruises, there are a couple of interesting castles to... More

We accidentally booked a 1-way ticket Bratislava to Vienna, when we actually meant Vienna to Bratislava. Turned up at the dock in Vienna and realised our mistake. The captain very kindly talked on our behalf to head office and cleared that it was ok for us to take the journey the other way. THANK YOU SO MUCH! The trip itself... More

We flew from England to Bratislava and then took the hydrofoil to Vienna. We saved a ton of money this way. I reckon the flights and hotel were at least 50% of the cost of going to Vienna direct. The hydrofoil is a wonderful way to travel down the Danube. You can take in the views, have a drink, and... More

We needed to return to Bratislava from Vienna to get the plane home so we decided to take the boat along the Danube. It is quite a boring trip after a while, all there is are lots of little fishing huts all along the river on both banks, it's very flat and there are next to no views. Every now... More

We traveled by train from Budapest to Bratislava and had good views at times of the River Danube and the countryside. We had inquired about buses but apparently they are only for local places. When we got off the train we could not find any information office so we had to ask at a shop about what bus to catch... More

A fun break from Vienna, we took the only boat at 8:30 am. You would have to reserve ahead for the front 3 seats and it comes with a premium in price. I think it is not necessary in the summer as you can step outside. On cold weather, the front seats are advantageous. The trip takes 70 min long,... More
