Shipping supports the local economy

The vessels of the white fleet are not only beautiful to look at. Much more than that, they are important pillars of the Austrian tourism industry, especially in the Danube area, for tourist destinations, businesses, restaurants, hotels, bus companies and many of the region’s suppliers. Many regional firms, from winegrowers to bakers, regularly supply demanding and delighted passengers with their wares.

1.17 million passengers travelled on the Danube in Austria in 2015, 67% of them on day trips and 33% on cruise vessels.

In 2019, there will be 187 different cruise vessels and 16 day trip ships, 6 of them operating scheduled services, making regular stops along the Danube during the cruise season and transporting guests to the regions along the river.

Ships are among the most environmentally friendly means of transport, can move huge tonnages with minimal effort, and do so using the resource-saving power of water.

According to a recent study, river cruisers in the Danube region between Regensburg and Vienna generated total added value of €110.7 million during the 2016 summer season. With its comprehensive market analysis, this study provided an insight into the European cabin-cruise market on the Danube on the stretch between Regensburg and Vienna. An expert survey and a guest survey were conducted as part of the study. The guest survey sought the opinions of 1,350 guests on cruise ships. The survey was carried out in the 2016 summer season in the period from the beginning of May to the end of October, when 90% of all cruises on the Danube take place.


High value added

As the basis for calculating the added value, the study referred to passengers’ additional spending, booked excursion packages, fees and charges, overnight stays, transfer costs and the purchase of products. From May to October 2016, overall added value generated by river cruises on the Danube between Regensburg and Vienna was calculated to be a total of €110.7 million. Of this, €21.7 million came from the Austrian federal state of Lower Austria, €11.9 million from Upper Austria and €49.2 million from the city of Vienna. Bavaria was responsible for added value of €27.9 million.

Excursion packages booked by passengers accounted for the biggest share of added value with 46%, followed by costs for loading (delivery of products and food on board) with 19% and extra spending by passengers on land with 17%. In addition, river cruise trips on the Danube between Regensburg and Vienna created the equivalent of 1,173 jobs during the period.


Wealthy target group & return visitors

The guest survey revealed that the passengers questioned were an average 67 years old. Accordingly, they also included a comparatively high proportion of retirees (71%). Moreover, cabin cruise guests are very wealthy holidaymakers: 57% of passengers surveyed have an above-average household income of more than €3,500.

Most of the guests on Danube cruise ships have a high affinity for travel: 91% of those surveyed indicated that they had already made at least one holiday trip to Europe in the past. Some 37% had travelled in the Danube region at least once in the past, with 11% of them having taken a river cruise on the Danube. The intention to make a return visit is another important and positive effect of cabin cruises on the Danube. 75% of German-speaking guests said they wanted to revisit places, cities or regions along the section of river between Regensburg and Vienna. Of the guests from the USA and Canada, a total of 42% said they wanted to visit the Danube region again in the future.


DrPetra Bohuslav – Lower Austria State Minister for Economy, Tourism and Sport is pleased with developments in Lower Austria: “Cabin ship tourism brings Lower Austria high added value and is therefore highly significant for the tourism industry. Last year, around 380,000 cruise tourists travelled on cruisers throughout the entire Danube region, taking land excursions to Lower Austria’s cultural assets and destinations such as Melk Abbey or the Wachau Valley. Our long-term goal is to increase the quality, added value and the appreciation of river cruises in the region. It will be even more important to implement measures for the sustainable control of visitor flows in the region. In this way, we can ensure further improvements for everyone working in the cabin cruise segment, as well as for the people who live in the region.”
