Humming soft waltz melodies, you stand on the deck, your thoughts back in imperial Vienna. Suddenly, however, you hear the strains of wild Balkan violin music and the vibrating background noise of city hustle and bustle. The Danube, the queen of rivers, has carried you further along her course. Incredible panoramic landscapes and fascinating city views of Vienna, Budapest and Bucharest line up like pearls on a string. These views tell tales of Romans and emperors, wars and cosmopolitanism. Famous monasteries on the banks of the river show what faith in God has driven humans to achieve. The Baroque architecture in the streets of the Danube cities make Germany’s historical apartment buildings seem positively spartan by comparison. But then all man-made creations reverently take a back seat, as it is nature’s turn to shine: in the awe-inspiring “Iron Gates” of the Carpathian Mountains, for example, or the mysterious Danube Delta, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Get ready for a true voyage to different worlds.

|1st||Engelhartszell (Passau)||1:00 am||5:00 pm|
|2nd||Vienna||1:00 pm||7:00 pm|
|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||Kalocsa||3:00 pm||3:30 pm|
|Mohács||6:00 pm||10:00 pm|
|4th||Belgrade||10:00 am||11:45 pm|
|Belgrade’s troubled history is reflected in a rich and varied architectural legacy. In the past, the city has changed hands many times and has now been the capital of Serbia since 1992. At the heart of the city, the square of the Republic leads on to the pedestrian shopping area and also the so-called Skadarlija artists’ quarter, both of which are definitely worth a visit.|
|8th||Sulina||9:00 am||10:00 am|
|Mist forms around the ship in Sulina. There! Pink flamingos are passing us. Dream or reality?|
|Tulcea||3:00 pm||11:00 pm|
|We approach the mouth of the Danube Delta - the Black Sea. Here, the Danube turns into a mighty river. A maze of lakes, marshes, sandbanks and wide meadows. Overwhelming!|
|10th||Giurgiu (Bucharest)||7:00 am||2:00 pm|
|Bucharest, the capital of Romania, fortunately has retained many fine buildings from better days despite the fact that Communist rule saw the erection of monstrosities, such as the gigantic House of the People, which is the second largest building in the world. The City Museum in the Sutu Palace presents the city’s lively history in a comprehensive way.|
|12th||Novi Sad||1:00 pm||8:00 pm|
|14th||Budapest||7:00 am||4:00 pm|
|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.|
|15th||Bratislava||9:00 am||1:00 pm|
|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.|
|16th||Wachau||1:00 am||1:00 am|
|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.|
|Linz||4:00 pm||11:00 pm|
|Linz is the capital of Upper Austria and has a unique character all of its own. You can still find traces of the Roman era here, while the old town centre boasts elegant Renaissance courtyards and Baroque churches. A local specialty is the Linzer Torte, a spicy cake with a jam filling.|
