City Cruises

Wouldn’t it be nice to experience several cities and landscapes in one single trip, and to discover that any one of these destinations would have made the trip worthwhile? This is exactly what you’ll experience on the almost 3,000-km stretch of the Danube between the Black Forest and the Black Sea. In irrepressible Bratislava, Renaissance meets socialism, and science fiction thrives alongside Baroque. Budapest – so majestic yet so quirky – has an improvisational feel, with its “ruin pubs” and former schools and factories converted into offices. And then there is the Hungarian language! Finally Vienna. Resembling an ornate pink confectionery creation, this is another city whose mixture of oriental, German and French influences make visitors fall in love with it. In fact, one trip to Vienna is not enough: you’ll want to keep coming back to discover more. And you’ll probably want to keep coming back for the Wäschermäderln, Vienna’s famous marzipan-stuffed apricots, too.

Harbour Arrival Departure
1st Engelhartszell (Passau) 17:00
2nd Vienna 14:00
Reiseverlauf Danube River Cruise Vienna, the capital of Austria, is known as the city on the blue Danube, but today the main river is actually detached from the inner city and only the Danube Channel runs through the city. Vienna is still one of Europe’s most seductive cities, however, and is worth a visit not just for its incomparable cultural treasures, the pomp and elegance of former glory, but also for its traditional coffee houses.
3rd Vienna 20:00
Reiseverlauf Danube River Cruise Vienna, the capital of Austria, is known as the city on the blue Danube, but today the main river is actually detached from the inner city and only the Danube Channel runs through the city. Vienna is still one of Europe’s most seductive cities, however, and is worth a visit not just for its incomparable cultural treasures, the pomp and elegance of former glory, but also for its traditional coffee houses.
4th Esztergom 08:00 10:30
Reiseverlauf Danube River Cruise Esztergom is one of the oldest cities in Hungary. Approximately 150 years ago the cathedral was built within a period of 30 years. St Peter’s Cathedral in Rome was used as a model.  At the inauguration, Franz Liszt conducted the “Graner Mass”. It is the largest and most beautiful cathedral in Hungary as well as the third largest cathedral in Europe.
Budapest 15:00
Reiseverlauf Danube River Cruise Budapest once consisted of three parts: Buda, Obuda and Pest. Buda meaning “oven” was the historical upper city with the castle. The part Obuda meaning “old oven” was the part between the hill and the Danube. And Pest on the left-hand side was where most of the population lived. In 1872, these three parts were combined to form a real centre.

6th Bratislava 09:00 18:00
Reiseverlauf Danube River Cruise Bratislava has been the capital of Slovakia since its independence in 1993. Bratislava was also the capital of Hungary from 1536 to 1784. A visit should begin at the castle, which offers spectacular panoramic views over the "Beauty on the Danube". The Old City presents a fascinating network of attractive squares and winding lanes.
7th Wachau
Reiseverlauf Danube River Cruise Many mythical and historical tales are told about the Wachau valley, from stories of marauding knights to the captivity of Richard the Lionheart. Above all else, however, it is the narrow 36-km-long valley that captures the imagination. Apricot orchards and vineyards line the slopes, while the rugged cliffs accentuate the charm of the area. On the steep hills of this UNESCO World Heritage Site grow world-famous grape varieties which were being eagerly enjoyed as far as back as the Middle Ages by the residents of the castles and palaces. The remains of these edifices can be seen all along the banks of the river; while some have been very well preserved, others survive as picturesque ruins.
Melk 12:00 16:00
8th Engelhartszell (Passau) 07:00
