Overview
During your stay in Vienna, don’t miss the opportunity to visit another European capital, the beautiful city of Bratislava in Slovakia. On this day trip, your knowledgeable guide will give you a complete overview of the city as you visit its main sites, such as the Grassalkovich Palace, Michael’s Gate and many others. Finally, another highlight awaits you: the journey back to Vienna by modern highspeed catamaran - the Twin City Liner.
Highlights
  • See the nearby country of Slovakia with this easy day trip from Vienna
  • Get the lowdown on Bratislava’s sights from a local guide when you arrive
  • Find the main sights on a walking tour and hear tips for attractions to visit
  • Cruise the Danube River and return to Vienna in style
What to Expect
Leave Vienna by comfortable, climate-controlled coach and cross the border of Austria to Slovakia, your destination for the day. In just an hour, you’ll stop in Bratislava, the country’s captivating capital city, framed by the Little Carpathian mountains. Get your bearings on a walking tour of Bratislava Old Town and hear the history behind landmarks such as Grassalkovich Palace and the Primate’s Palace with its pastel pink façade. Then, make the most of an afternoon of free time to have lunch or explore the city at your own pace. The Slovak National Theatre and the bars and cafes of the center are worth visiting. Meet your guide at the prearranged time to board an express catamaran and admire the sights of the Danube River as you cruise back to Vienna.

A great trip to do if you are staying in Vienna. It’s a long day which includes a coach to the city, a 2 hour walking tour and then free time before a catamaran ride along the Danube back to Vienna. We felt there was the right amount of time to learn about Bratislava before
