ENCHANTING DANUBE
8 DAYS FROM BUDAPEST TO PASSAU


The shimmering waters of the fabled Danube River flow for thousands of miles through the very heart of Europe, silent witness to centuries of artistic achievement and historical events. This perfectly composed journey provides an immersive cultural tasting menu of four equally beguiling countries—ideal for first-time river cruisers as well as seasoned travelers seeking to experience yet another dimension of these much-loved destinations.

Our locally-based destination experts will take you well beyond the “must-sees” of each region, offering fresh takes on classic sites, insider knowledge of delightful under-the-radar locales, and VIP access to places only a privileged few will ever experience—such as a private early-morning viewing of the acclaimed art collection of the Kunstkammer Vienna.

A veritable showcase of the best of Central Europe, this new journey is one any culturally curious world traveler will love, featuring old-world capitals and charming towns and villages.

(
Providing the most all-inclusive luxury to our guests is the heart and soul of our brand and that will never change. Yet sometimes our guests want something that goes even "above and beyond" our included experiences. In light of this, we now offer guests a curated selection of optional excursions, available for an additional charge.)

 

DAY 3: Bratislava, Vienna
Your ship sets sail from Bratislava later this morning and heads for Vienna today. You may relax onboard all day, perhaps enjoying a drink on the Sun Deck and taking in the scenery as the ship wends its way along the Danube Bend. When you arrive in Vienna, you’ll cap off your day with a private concert of Mozart and Strauss at a stunning Viennese palace.

Featured Excursion:
Night Out: Private Mozart and Strauss Concert
Choice of Bratislava - Small but Precious Walking Tour or "Let's Go" Hike to Bratislava Castle

 

DAY 4: Vienna
Vienna is a cultural treasure trove revered for its art and music (and sinfully rich pastries). Experience the “City of Waltzes” with your choice of tours, as well as an expertly led tour of an extraordinary collection of art at the renowned Vienna Art History Museum.

Featured Excursion:
“Morning with the Masters” at the Vienna Art History Museum
Choice of Vienna - Imperial City Highlights or Vienna's Music and Composers
MASTERPIECE COLLECTION:
Schönbrunn Palace After Hours Visit
You have leisure time after your tour to explore Vienna on your own. You might wish to visit the Albertina Museum, which houses one million old-master prints and an impressive collection of works by 19th- and 20th-century painters, ranging from Renoir to Rothko.

If you’d like to get a little exercise and see a completely different side of Vienna, borrow a bike from the ship and explore Danube Island and Prater Park. (For a wonderful view of the region, ride the Ferris wheel in Prater Park.)

DAY 5: Dürnstein, Melk
Dürnstein is one of our favorite towns along the Danube, a lovely place to wander cobblestone lanes, browse quaint shops and maybe hike up to a ruined castle (with an intriguing tale all its own). You can also opt for a tasting or learn all about the world’s costliest spice from the Wachau Valley’s only saffron grower. Later, visit the 900-year-old Melk Abbey and its extraordinary baroque-style library. You have two ports of call in the incredibly scenic valley, Dürnstein and Melk, and an assortment of delightful ways to explore this lovely region.

Featured Excursion:
Melk Abbey with Library Visit
Choice of Dürnstein Wine Estate Visit with Tasting (MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experiences)* or Dürnstein Village and Saffron Workshop (MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experiences)*
*Our MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experiences support sustainable tourism, offering our guests opportunities to directly impact the communities we explore in a positive way.

 

DAY 6: Linz (Salzburg)
Mozart’s birthplace of Salzburg is nestled in a glorious alpine setting that sparkles like a winter wonderland. Linz may be best known for its famous Linzer torte, but it’s also a hotbed for the arts. See the sights with a local expert and visit a family at their farm in the countryside. Austria’s third-largest city, Linz boasts a long history of trading and textile manufacturing, but these days it is perhaps best known for its electronic arts and annual festival.

Choice of Full-Day in Salzburg with Sound of Music or Linz Town and Country: Linzertorte and Cider Farm Visit (MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experiences)*
*Our MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experiences support sustainable tourism, offering our guests opportunities to directly impact the communities we explore in a positive way.

 

DAY 7: Passau
Passau is a crossroads in more ways than one, as three rivers meet here and three nations nearly do, making for a fascinating cultural mosaic. Get to know the town and its main claim to fame—Europe’s largest pipe organ—or “Let’s Go” with an invigorating riverside hike or bike ride.

Choice of Passau Three Rivers or “Let's Go” Bicycle Ride along the Inn River or “Let's Go” Hike along the Ilz River
In the evening, a special Captain’s Farewell Reception and Dinner will be prepared for you.

 

DAY 8: Passau (Disembark)
