Danube boat trip in the Wachau

On the way with the passenger ship

Romantic, almost nostalgic, and always an experience: a boat trip on the Danube belongs to the favourite activities in the Wachau region. Let the landscapes and buildings left and right of the river pass by while the ship cruises through the blue water of the Danube. You can go on board right in Emmersdorf at the landing only a stone’s throw from the Donauhof Hotel.

DDSG Blue Danube Schifffahrt

The Wachau – probably the most beautiful stretch of the river Danube – reaches from Melk to Krems. The 36-kilometre-long river valley has been honoured by the UNESCO as world cultural heritage.

On board of the DDSG Blue Danube with the ships “MS Prinz Eugen” and “MS Wachau” you will experience the region from the water and pass by medieval fortresses, picturesque villages, great cloisters and vineyards. Let yourself be enchanted!

In the main season, the DDSG ships depart from Emmersdorf at 11.10 am or from Melk at 11.00 am / 1.50 pm and 4.50 pm.

Tickets are available at the Donauhof Hotel and at the Landhotel Wachau!

Holidays with the Pichler family in the Wachau

Let the Wachau work its charm from different perspectives, if on the water way or on the overland route, from the top of a fortress or leisurely on the sandy beach opposite of our hotel. In the evening you will relax in the hotel with an excellent meal, still with the day’s impressions before your inner eye. Feel the cordiality of the Wachau and visit us. We look forward to you at the Donauhof Hotel, the Landhotel Wachau and Luberegg Castle!
