The Danube flows very fast, and this museum, in a lovely building, illustrates the struggle over the centuries to travel up and down. Vast teams of horses, pulling long strings of barges up the river very well displayed. Do visit!

We had a wonderful local guide for our tour of this museum. It is dedicated to travel and commerce on the Danube before there were modern ships. There were life-sized horses to depict the pulling of barges up the river. The model ship is very impressive and the building itself is worth seeing. This area is famous for its wine and apricots. We enjoyed a tasting of apricot brandy and other apricot products which were also sold in the gift shop at the museum.

This is a small museum but well worth a journey to learn about travel on the Danube in former days. It is located in a beautiful former Bishop's residence and the architecture alone would almost justify a visit. However, the exhibits are well laid out with excellent models of the types of boats used in earlier times plus a long small model of a cargo barge being pulled upstream by 60 horses - all represented! There is also a life size collection of horses and riders demonstrating how the system worked. The setting of the little town in which the museum is sited surrounded by vineyards and apricots is also very attractive. We would love to go back and have more time there. It is right in the mioddle of the Gruenerweltliner area.

This is a small, but excellent museum providing insight into the importance of the Danube for commerce, in particular, and the history of shipping on the Danube, in general. It definitely contributes to the understanding of life along the Danube through the display of artifacts, including some great models of boats.

This museum is almost completely dedicated to a life on and around the Danube with some other nautical additions. The exhibits are exceptionally good and many have translation into English. Getting to the museum is an easy walk from the bus stop. On the return walk to town I recommend taking the hiking trail to the nearby castle ruins and the overlook pavilion for great views and photographs.
