Tip: A barge ride to the Schlögener Schlinge and a walk to the Schlögener Blick viewpoint: enjoy a barge trip through the Schlögener Schlinge, a wonder of nature. The traditional barges used on the Danube are called “Zille”. A trip on a Zille barge is a complete contrast to the huge tourist ships. The trip includes the journey from the Hotel Wesenufer or the harbour in Freizell to the Schlögener Schlinge by barge, stop and the opportunity to walk to the Schlögener Blick viewpoint (around 30 minutes each way) and back. A barge will then take you back to the Hotel Wesenufer.
