River cruises on the Danube are becoming increasingly popular. In 2016, some 380,000 tourists took pleasure cruises on cruise ships throughout the entire Danube region.
The 260 kilometers of the Danube passing through Lower Austria are perhaps the most scenic of any along this river. The banks are lined with magnificent structures, picturesque towns and villages, and a wine culture of the highest caliber - it is a region tailor-made for shore excursions. In December 2000 the Wachau became the only region along the entire Danube to make the UNESCO World Heritage List and at the end of 2008, the National Geographic Traveler Magazine dubbed it the "Best Historic Destination in the World."
