Possible social programs when you charter a Riverboat on the Danube

OceanEvent knows how to combine the cultural, scenic, culinary, and sporting highlights along the Danube into an inspiring social program that will make your event unforgettable.

  • Mozart, Haydn, Strauss, Bruckner… In a private chamber concert in the middle of a historic site, we let the works of famous composers resound for your guests.
  • Wachau and Wagram are among the most famous wine regions along the Danube. OceanEvent arranges unusual tasting tours through the idyllic vineyards – of course with a visit to the popular Straußenwirtschaften.
  • Dürnstein Castle and Aggstein Castle in the Wachau are two of many examples of the rich UNESCO World Heritage sites throughout the Danube region. Our castle tour – with stopovers and fantastic views – will inspire you!
  • Through Budapest, we take you on a culinary tour: your guests will experience the heritage and vibrant flavors of this city steeped in history by sampling authentic Hungarian dishes such as goulash, langos and ‘chimney cake’ (also known as Baumstriezel).
  • The Danube can also be explored in an active way: Canoeing or kayaking on the river, hiking in the surrounding hills, cycling tours with spectacular views down the bends and loops of the imposing stream.

Sustainability on board

We make your charter cruise an environmentally friendly event. Riverboats operate with state-of-the-art technology and, in some cases, innovative hybrid drives. With responsible processes – from waste prevention to on-board recycling – these ships minimize their environmental footprint and prioritize the protection of natural resources.

Companies that charter with OceanEvent receive a certificate documenting the climate neutrality of the cruise through CO2 offsetting. You can find out more about this HERE.
