Is it worth to travel from Bratislava to Vienna by the Danube river?How long does it take?Or better to take the train,bus for the transfer and make an extra boat trip in Vienna and Bratislava?

Hi there

We travelled to Vienna by bus. It took about 1 hour and was well worth it. The buses go from the Novy Most, we went at about 9am and returned at 4.30pm, I think there are about 3 or 4 a day. There is a little hut by the bus stop selling tickets and you buy the return on the bus coming back. It was about £3 each way I think!!!

P.S. Don't forget your passport!

Hope this helps

Lauren

As far as I know the boat only runs in the Summer. Buses run every day from the main bus station for about 5Euro

We are coming to Bratislava at the end of June. We want to spend at least one whole day in Vienna - we like the look of this Twin City Liner that is starting.

We are a middle aged couple and want to travel in reasonable comfort.

Would it be a good idea to travel one way by bus or train (and which do people recommend?) and one way by the twin city liner?

We would be grateful for any help.

Thanks.

Hi Tom

We're booked on the Twin City Liner which takes 75 minutes each way along the river. It's cost 80 euros for the two of us but we are travelling at the weekend and paid the extra to book front seats.

It travels at 55km to 60km per hour!
