Salzach River Boat cruises
Sightseeing-tours from the waterway
Experience the city of Salzburg with a Boat cruise on the Salzach River. From the middle of April throught the middle of October the Cruise Boat "Amadeus Salzburg" offers you first class sightseeing-tours: marvel at the city of Mozart from the waterway.
In the olden days it was the salt transports that were underway on the Salzach River and gave the river its name. An attempt was also made to start up Passenger ship service on the river. Due to the shoals in the river and the weak engines at that time the service had to be discontinued in 1891. More than a century later, since the year 2002, travel on the Salzach River has been made possible again. The "Amadeus Salzburg" is a highly modern Cruise Boat with a 68 passenger seating capacity. Its unique one-of-a-kind design with spacious windows allows for a magnificent Panorama view. The boat has an all-aluminum construction with a draft of only 38cm (14.96 inches). Dual jet-drive engines with a combined 700 horse power output accelerate the boat up to 50 km/h (approx. 31 miles per hour).Request your free holiday-offer!
