The often sang of (sometimes) blue Danube is the biggest stream in Europe and surely also among the most beautiful ones. Even though the 350 km in Austria make not quite 20% of the entire length, the rivers offers a lot of variety here. Not only as far as surroundings are concerned, some stretches of it are rather tricky and should be navigated with care. If water level rises marginally above average, navigation can become difficult if boats are not enough motorised.
