Map Classical Danube River Cruise

Ports of Call

Passau - Passau is a town in Lower Bavaria, Germany. It is also known as the Dreiflüssestadt or "City of Three Rivers," because the Danube is joined at Passau by the Inn from the south and the Ilz from the north.

Regensburg - Begin your cruise with a visit to Regensburg. This UNESCO site boasts architecture from many centuries, reflective of its varied history throughout the centuries. The stone bridge, built in 1135-1146, the Church of St James, and the Schloss of Thurn and Taxis are a few of the highlights of this beautiful city. In the afternoon join our excursion to the Weltenburg Abbey, which towers high above the Danube and can be seen from afar. The Benedictine abbey is the oldest monastery in Bavaria and always worth a visit. Back onboard this evening, experience a Bavarian evening with lively traditional music and a dinner of local specialities. 

Emmersdorf - This morning presents an opportunity to visit the famous Benedictine Abbey of Melk which stands over the Danube, or continue with the vessel to the town of Weissenkirchen. Here, sample some of the region’s famous Riesling wines or enjoy a leisurely stroll through the cobbled streets. Everyone will rejoin the ship in the early afternoon to continue on to Vienna.

Vienna, Austria - The "City of Waltzes" offers a treasure trove of gems and you have two ways to discover them. Join a city tour showcasing the regal splendor of the city, including the majestic Opera House and the former Imperial Palace of the Habsburgs before concluding in Vienna's historic city center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and then visit St. Stephen's Cathedral. Or, for a more active exploration of the area, take a guided bike ride along the Danube. During the afternoon, you can enjoy leisure time or pedal your way to Klosterneuburg Monastery on a guided cycling tour.

Esztergom, Hungary - Esztergom is a city in northern Hungary, 46 km north-west of the capital Budapest. It lies in Komárom-Esztergom county, on the right bank of the river Danube, which forms the border with Slovakia. The biggest church of Central Europe can be found in Esztergom. The building is 100m in height and boasts the world's largest altar piece. Organ and choir concerts attract many visitors inside the interior. Other attractions include Watertown with its two-towered church, the Kereszteny Museum and the imposing Town Hall. The views from Szent Tamas Hill are stunning and the Szechenyi Square and surrounding streets offer a quaint but elegant vista.

Budapest, Hungary - Home to several UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the Buda Castle quarter in Castle Hill, and Heroes' Square, Budapest offers and unmatched combination of culture, tradition and even a secret labyrinth of caves and caverns under the city. Your city tour begins with a visit to the vibrant Great Market Hall brimming with vendors selling everything from food to souvenirs. The remainder of this tour takes you to both the Buda (hilly) and the Pest (flat) sides of the river (B)
