    Shipping on the Danube existed long before our era. For the Romans, the Danube was a border river against the peoples in the north. In the Middle Ages, the Bavarian-Austrian Danube region formed the center of East-West trade. Before the introduction of steamships in the middle of the 19th century, ships and rafts were built entirely of wood. The Spitz Danube river historical shipping Museum offers a diverse insight into the technology and history of historic Danube shipping.
