Are there ferries on the Danube?
We have only taken two ferries on the Danube, and both were spur of the moment kinds of decisions. One was ten years ago in the Wachau section from Melk to Krems – absolutely beautiful scenery and the ferry went pretty slowly.

Is the train ride from Budapest to Vienna scenic?
Scenery. It’s worth pointing out, straight off the bat, that the journey from Vienna to Budapest is not the most scenic – it’s flat and the countryside is fairly uneventful, which means this isn’t a journey you make for the views… unless you’re big into wind turbines that is!
