ReConnecting Cruise Dates



Arrival of the Danuvina Alacris at Tulln (Austria)

On 19th April, rowers who (together) participated in the Connecting Cruise 2022 made the first journey of the Danuvina Alacris in Austria as part of the ReConnecting Cruise, rowing from Krems to Tulln. On arrival, the crew were greeted in a festive atmosphere by the mayor of Tulln, Peter Eisenschenk.

The evening was rounded off with a lecture by Prof. Dr. Boris Dreyer (Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg) on the subject of "Scientific tests on Roman boats: Historical added value you can touch".

On 20th April, the Danuvina Alacris was officially taken over by the University for Continuing Education Krems for the year 2024.
Throughout the summer, the Danuvina Alacris will be moored in the Gästehafen Tulln (Guest Harbour) and open to the public for excursions. From mid-July to mid-September, the Danuvina Alacris will visit the Czech Republic as part of the ReConnecting Cruise.

On 10th October, the Danuvina Alacris will travel down the Danube towards Slovakia, where it will stay as part of the ReConnecting Cruise in 2025.

Rowing like the Romans

Tulln [Roman: Comagenis] was an important Roman military camp on the Danube and, with its architectural treasures such as the Römerturm, it is part of the Danube Limes World Heritage Site.
2000 years ago, a unit of the Roman Danube fleet temporarily used the harbour of the Comagenis camp. The Danuvina Alacris will be on display again at the Gästehafen Tulln from 19th April to 14th July & from 18th September to 9th October 2024.
