The River Danube is one of Bratislava's great assets and it's possible to take sightseeing cruises on the river as well as ferries to Vienna.
Among favourite destinations for pleasure cruises are – downstream – the Danubiana Meulensteen Art Museum at Čunovo and the hydroelectric scheme at Gabčíkovo, and – upstream – historic Devín Castle, at the confluence of the Danube and Morava Rivers. From Devín, hikers can enjoy the nearby nature trail along the Morava. And from Sandberg, a sandstone hill above Devín, there are superb views over both rivers and neighbouring Austria, as well as fossils beds where 14-16 million-year-old fossils can still be found.
A scheduled passenger service, the Twin City Liner, connects Bratislava and Vienna by high-speed catamaran several times a day during summer (services are less frequent in winter). Other services on the river change according to the season; the best place to check is the Passenger Port (address below)
