Since its first publication in 2002, the Manual on Danube Navigation has become one of the major standard works in European inland waterway transport. It captures Danube navigation with all its achievements, developments and services and also identifies the potentials and possibilities of Danube navigation which are waiting to be used and promoted.

The manual is directed to practicians in inland waterway transport and to anyone interested in navigation. As it also serves as a textbook used for professional training in this sector, the Manual on Danube Navigation contributes significantly to disseminating knowledge and inspiring future customers to use the environmentally-friendly mode of waterway transport.

The fourth edition of the manual was published in 2019 and is currently available only in German (Margareta Hauser).
