Improved river terminal to open in Vienna


Travellers visiting Vienna this year will be able to set off on a river cruise from a new and improved terminal in Austria's capital city.



Set to open in May, the three-storey construction is located between Schwedenbrucke and Marienbrucke on the bank of a canal that is linked to the Danube. It will provide a new base for the high-speed Twin City Liner catamarans, which operate 75-minute river cruises from Vienna to Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia.


The terminal will provide easier access for wheelchair users and will also host smaller ships offering pleasure cruises on the Danube. There will be a desk manned by representatives from Bratislava, who will provide information for people planning to visit the Slovakian city. Around 200,000 passengers are expected to use the new terminal every year.


As well as providing a new and improved location for travellers to sail from, the development will include a restaurant, coffee house, shops and spaces for events and exhibitions.
