The 1912 built Schoenbrunn was at her berth in Linz when she was hit by the river cruiser, which was turning in the Danube at the time, and severely damaged. It is thought that the paddlesteamer will be out of action for at least 12 months after the accident yesterday. No injuries were reported on either vessel.

She is a beauty, certainly hope she can be repaired :(

Below is the view from the Linz webcam this morning of the paddlesteamer at her usual berth, clearly showing where she was hit by the river cruiser...
