About Us

… affiliated with the Danube for generations

For many generations the work of the Brandner family has been dedicated to the river Danube.


In the year of 1995 the MS Austria was purchased, completely rebuilt and adapted for operation in the Wachau, where it was first set "off the lines" in the year 1996.  A new way of operating daily sightseeing and charter cruises on the Danube was founded by female sense and power. It has mainly been Barbara Brandner and her team who have developed a shipping company that stands for security, sparkling white ships, cleanness, a friendly crew, a delightful atmosphere and very good food and wines on board.
