We booked this trip over the phone before we went to Vienna to ensure we had a seat on the boat.The company are extremely well organised and everything ran smoothly. We collected our tickets on arrival in Vienna so that we knew exactly where we were sailing from . The catamaran went speedily to Bratislava which is a beautiful little... More

Wanted to visit Bratislava from Vienna and rather than take train here was something different! An enjoyable way to travel. On way out were on deck and way back inside. Was comfortable, clean and tidy. Took you right to the centre of Bratislava, about 5 mins walk from major attractions.

When visiting Vienna, we decided to go on a day trip to Bratislava (great marketing coup by the way, making Vienna and Bratislava twin cities)....Anyway, book in advance - the trips are usually pretty booked. Bear in mind that you book for a certain time and cannot interchange tickets. A return ticket is a whopping EUR 60! and seats are... More

Do not book your tickets through this fraudulent company. Their website is set up to deceive you. When you book your tickets online, you are prompted to select your outbound journey and return journey and a price is shown (in my case it was 30 euros), but once you book your confirmation shows that you only booked your ticket one...

Chose the high speed catamaran for our day trip to/from Vienna to Bratislava. From our hotel, it was just a 5 min walk to the pier on the canal. Boarding started at 30 min prior to departure. Keep in mind that you do need identification documents for everyone in your party (passport, etc). On board there was a small concession... More

Decided to take the boat trip to Vienna instead of the bus. Nice trip but quite expensive. Couple of things bothered me during the cruise. Why could we not drink our beer on upper deck even though it was bought on board? Found it also strange that we had to sit down inside when approaching Vienna? I don´t mean just... More

We used this boat to travel from Bratislava to Vienna. A rocket of a boat. :-) 50kph and only took 90 minutes. Has a shop and very comfy seating inside with air condition. Very well priced too.

We took the Twin City Liner in the morning and returned mid afternoon. It's the perfect short trip with enough time in Bratislava for an hour bus tour plus lunch and strolling the old city center. The TCL is comfortable, with great views from all seats. On the return to Vienna we were surprised by their 10 year anniversary celebration,... More

Staying in Old University Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
Old University Quarter
North of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna suddenly turns small, winding and medieval, opening up to legendary places such as the Basilisk sculpture at Schönlaterngasse, as well as glamorous baroque façades, courtyards and churches. Take 45 minutes for a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse, Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories and legends that will enrich your Vienna experience.
