City Cruises

What do you think about on New Year’s Eve? About the year just gone? Or about what might lie ahead in the new one? In Vienna, the main thing you think is “Wow!”. Because at midnight, the Ferris wheel in the Prater pales in comparison to the fireworks shooting up into the sky. Fountains of fire, torrents of stars, blazes of gold and explosions of colour welcome the new year, and Vienna invites you to dance. But this imperial city is not the only breathtaking city on the Danube. “Budapest is like Paris without the perfume”, is how the people of Budapest describe their city. You can see why. The stunning Baroque buildings, the picturesque narrow streets with their little boutiques and cafés, and in the middle of it all the Danube inviting you for a relaxing drink at the end of the day – all of this recalls the city on the Seine. What’s different is that there’s a little crumbling here and there, and the metro is a little rickety. But who cares? As you continue on in a westward direction, you can reflect on the year gone by and the year to come. As you do so, the Wachau valley – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – glides by, its precious vineyards resting under a thin blanket of snow, preparing for a successful year ahead. A bit like you in the SPA-ROSA.

Danube New Year's
Harbour Arrival Departure
1st Engelhartszell (Passau) 17:00
2nd Cruising Day
3rd Budapest 08:30 18:00
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.
4th Vienna 18:00
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.

Dürnstein 13:00 20:00
7th Linz 09:00 21:00
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.
8th Engelhartszell (Passau) 07:00
