We present an innovative first-time adoption of two methods for estimating travel times of ships on inland waterways. These methods are based on historical data and currently observed velocities. Precondition for these methods is a tracking system for ships like the "Donau River Information Service" (DoRIS) as implemented in Austria. We therefore developed and tested the approaches on the Austrian part of the Danube. Numerical results indicate a clear improvement of the reliability of estimated arrival times of ships compared to state-of-the-art approaches based on average travel times of ships solely. Operators of locks and harbors benefit from the provided information because they can optimize their processes subsequent to the arrival of a ship.
