    Boat trip Passau-Linz-Vienna

    The 297-km-long segment was driven on from 1837 to 1995 by the formerly state DDSG daily with three ships and so it is the oldest distance used by motor ships at the Nibelungenstrom. You spend the nights in 1st-class-hotels in Linz and Vienna, so the journey also becomes a city tour by boat.
