There is a direct connection between Vienna and Bratislava by the river Danube. Basically, there are two main companies, which operate on these routes; both using high-speed boats, but the time varies because of the different routs. The online reservation of the tickets is possible.

    Zdravím a děkuji za článek. Marně se snažím najít loď, která by mě odvezla tuhle sobotu z Bratislavi do Vidne. Ale vypadá to, že žádná z daných společností momenrálně neoperuje.

    Máte prosím jiné informace?

    Děkuju předem za info.

    S pozdravem

      Ahoj Terezie,
      je to tak, lode premávajú až v lete. Ospravedlňujem sa za neskoršiu odpoveď a dúfam, že cesta bola v poriadku. Išla si nakoniec vlakom, alebo autobusom?

    Is it possible to take luggage on board the ferry from Bratislave to Vienna. We are wanting to do the ferry down the Danube but then want to fly out of Vienna to Venice. Thanks so much

      Hi Kerri,
      yes, no problem with the luggage on board.
      Have a safe trip! :)

    I'm taking my boyfriend in April next year about the 15th/16th to the 19th and I would love to also visit Vienna for one day and think the boat journey would be lovely, I was wondering how often they would be running at that time of year as I know its fairly early on?
    Thanks :)

    1. Jakub

      Hi Dorina,
      you are lucky, the boat starts to shuttle on 11th of April, so you can take a service which runs 3-5 times per day (see timetable on the web).

    I am travelling to vienna on Saturday next. I am landing at brataslava airport and was thinking of travelling to vienna by boat. Would you recommend this and how far from the airport to the boat?

    1. Jakub

      Hi Gerard,
      honestly I would not recommend to go by boat. I would advice a direct bus service, which is cheaper and more comfortable. Moreover, boats normally do not operate in early November. Please see for online booking of bus tickets.
