DDSG Blue Danube bei Krems

Wachau boat ride

The proud red-and-white DDSG fleet takes you to the UNESCO World Heritage Site

From the middle of April to the beginning of November, the proud red-and-white DDSG fleet heads off up to three times a day in each direction for leisurely cruises through the UNESCO World Heritage Site Wachau. Be it in spring, when the apricot and other fruit trees are in full bloom, under a bright blue summer sky along the baroque monasteries and picturesque villages, or in autumn, when the vineyards change colour and shimmer in red and gold in the afternoon sun - a boat trip through the Wachau is always a very special experience. Thanks to the tight timetable, there are many possibilities to explore the region between Krems, Dürnstein, Spitz, Emmersdorf and Melk by water.

Current Timetable:

  • departing Krems: 10:15 a.m., 3:45 p.m.
  • departing Melk: 2:40 p.m., 5:25 p.m.
