Fahrt durch die Wachau: Blick auf Spitz

We were very pleased to get to know you at the EFTC Workshop last week in Vienna. As I promised, you find below some standard offers for our tourist trains “Wachaubahn” and “Reblaus Express”: Offer n° 1: Ferry boat + train ride WACHAUBAHN

Arriving with your own bus from the west to Melk> Having left the A1 –Highway at Melk in the direction of Krems, you go to the village of Arnsdorf.

  • Crossing the river Danube by rope ferry from Arnsdorf to Spitz an der Donau
    • a little boat trip, lasting about 15 minutes

At the station of Spitz an der Donau, you take the Wachaubahn railway to Krems an der Donau

  • Departure from Spitz: 15:13 or 18:13
  • Arrival at Krems: 15:45 or 18:45

At Krems, your bus is awaiting the group – either to go on to Vienna or to visit Krems…

The price of this standard program:

  • including the ferry boat and the train ride, is € 11,00 / person (incl. 10% VAT)

If you add this program to your bus ride to Vienna, you have to estimate about 1½ hours for this “detour”.

Of course, the above program can be extended, for instance by a wine-tasting session or a guided tour to the monastery of Dürnstein.

Here some useful websites if you want more informations about the region and the railway line:
