The river cruises in Austria from The River Cruise Line are varied and exciting, offering a selection of cruises to suit your unique needs. It’s no secret that Austria’s countryside is breathtaking, or that Vienna is one of the most famous cities in the world, but it is landlocked, so cruising probably isn’t the first thing you’d think of when considering an Austrian holiday. But a river cruise is the perfect way to soak in the sights, tastes and sounds of this beautiful country.

Our Austria cruises use the Danube river, and some move up the Rhine as well. Keep an eye on the variety of cruises for these rivers, as well as the featured cruises tab below. Or watch out for our special offers page for last-minute deals on various cruises, including our Austrian cruises.

Austria is a mountainous central European country whose name, Österreich, means ‘eastern realm’. It has an approximate population of 8 million — with 98% of these speaking German — and its capital is Vienna, which sits on the famous Danube river.

The great Danube river runs through the north of Austria and can take cruise passengers from Germany all the way through to the Black Sea. This river forms such an integral part of the Austrian identity that it inspired the famous waltz The Blue Danube by composer Johan Strauss II.

Please get in touch with us here at The River Cruise Line if you’d like to ask us anything about our Austrian river cruises.
