City Cruises

People have celebrated the Danube in song, dedicated poems to it and written fairy tales about it. So when you are on the deck of the A-ROSA watching the wonders of nature and cities glide by, don’t be surprised if you find yourself writing unusually grandiloquent postcards and text messages to your friends back home. This happens a lot. This trip will enable you to take home European history not only as a store of knowledge but also as a heartfelt sense of life. Vienna and Budapest, the former capitals of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, are positively overflowing with stunning Baroque architecture and the finest Hungarian art nouveau. And, despite being surrounded by all this old splendour, both cities seem to keep getting younger and more dynamic. Nonconformist types will be thrilled by a visit to the self-confident Slovakian capital, Bratislava. While you’re there, make sure you order bryndzové halušky! This national dish is made of noodles with sheep’s cheese. It’s simple but really good.

International Cruises

We are pleased to offer international cruises on selected cruise ships.

Our international ships on the Danube River are A-ROSA DONNA and SILVA.

The official languages on board our international ships are both German and English and the ship announcements and all written information is provided in English. As well, our international ships are accompanied by an "International Host" who is your contact person for our international guests and responsible for making sure that you enjoy your cruise to the fullest.

Danube Highlights
Harbour Arrival Departure
1st Engelhartszell (Passau) 5:00 pm
2nd Vienna 2:00 pm 8:00 pm
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 Budapest 12:30 pm 8:00 pm
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.
4th Bratislava 1:00 pm 6:00 pm
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.
5th Wachau 1:00 am 1:00 am
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.
Linz 4:00 pm 11:00 pm
Reiseverlauf Danube River Cruise 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.
6th Engelhartszell (Passau) 7:00 am
