The Danube has been used by mankind since ancient times for transportation of its vital goods. Indispensable for this were "Zillen", traditional Austrian boats made out of wood.
On a trip with one of these traditional boats, you can enjoy a little bit of history of theDanube navigation and gain a unique insight into the beauties along the river.
The Witti family in Freizell has been manufacturing and renting these boats for centuries. Even if you do not have a boat license, you can go "on a big trip" after a detailed enrollment. The boats have a maximum of 6 PS and can accommodate up to 5 people. Guests with the appropriate license can also rent larger boats (max 30 PS, up to 7 persons).
Between the hydro power station Jochenstein and Aschach, you will see along a length of about 35 km numerous castles, ruins, beautiful gravel beaches, but also imposing, steeply sloping slopes as well as lovely villages. Hotel guests can also book a combination of a "cruise and a picnic" on the Danube in Upper Austria
You want to rent a boat yourself? The Antares 7.80 is for your disposal!
Enjoy the beautiful landscape from the water, either alone or with friends. For more information, please find some more information on:
