Shipping supports the local economy
The ships of the passenger fleet are more than just a pretty sight. Indeed, they are an important pillar of the Austrian tourist industry, particularly along the Danube as they serve numerous day trip destinations, shops, restaurants, hotels, coach operators and many other associated businesses in the region. Passengers demand and enjoy top quality goods. These are supplied by local producers, from winegrowers to bakers.
A 2005 study of 610 guests suggested that an annual total of around 45 million Euros of business was generated in Lower Austria alone for businesses benefitting from the custom of passengers.
1.145 million passengers travelled along the Austrian section of the Danube in 2014, 67% travelling on day trip rides and 33% on cruises.
In 2016 160 different cruisers and 18 day trip boats (6 of them scheduled liners), regularly stop at the Danube stations during the shipping season taking passengers to local areas up and down the Danube. Boat travel is one of the most eco-friendly forms of transport in existence.
Immense weights can be pulled using very little power, saving resources and exploiting the natural power of the water.
Tourists on board enjoy a gentle floating sensation on the graceful waves of the Danube; a peaceful way to travel, the journey more important than the destination, soaking in the beauty of the Danube scenery, in appreciation of the places of cultural interest and the people around them. The average cruise passenger is 60 years old, interested in culture, would like to visit several countries, and appreciates relaxation. There is an above average intention among guests to return to the region for a longer stay. Hence, passenger travel increases turnover in the Danube and also encourages guests to return for a longer period.
