Maritime Museum

Sailing on the Danube river has a long history before our time. For the Romans, the Danube was a border for the people from north. In the middle ages the Bavarian-Austrian Danouraum, the center of the East-West trade was formed.

Before the introduction of steamboats around the middle of the 19th century, ships and rafts were built exclusively from wood. The Schifffahrtsmuseum Spitz offers visitors a wealth of insights into the technology and history of the historic Donauschiffahrt.
