Danube/Main

Port of Linz (Austria) - DanubeMain axis

The Danube/Main axis connects Central Europe to the Rhine and the Black Sea. This river is the longest river in central Europe and Southeast Europe and the natural hinterland connection for several Black Sea ports.

Traffic on the Danube has repeatedly been affected by the wider historic context. With European integration supporting the region’s dynamic economic development also new perspectives for inland waterway transport are created.

The Danube/Main axis will form a backbone of the future Rhine-Danube corridor of the trans-European transport network (TEN-T).
