Our international ships:

With a stroke of the bow, a violin begins to weep. The young, the artistic and business people sit beneath the golden ceiling of the Book Café in Budapest. This city of many influences is a place where people, culture and architecture come together to create a unique atmosphere. Visitors who dock in Belgrade will be able to smell peach trees and wood smoke as they make their way to the imposing fortress. They’ll also be able to try pljeskavica, a kind of burger served with cream cheese and flatbread. There’s more to Vienna than the Sissi Museum, the cathedral and Prater; there’s also an endless array of charming and innovative shops, cafés and museums. Plus, the Carpathian Mountains aren’t far away. First, though, you must pass through the “Iron Gates”. Looking on disapprovingly is a 40-m-high portrait carved into the cliffs of a king who ruled here until 106 A.D. The deep-blue water flows through the vertical cliffs of this mighty canyon, taking many a passenger’s breath away. The Wachau valley seems rather gentle by comparison. This area’s mild climate means that sun-kissed grapes can be grown to produce exquisite wines. This UNESCO World Heritage Site also boasts idyllic ruined castles and picturesque villages. A region for true connoisseurs.

|1st||Engelhartszell (Passau)||—||5:00 pm|
|3rd||Budapest||7:00 am||10:00 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.|
|4th||Kalocsa||8:00 am||9:00 am|
|Mohács||1:00 pm||4:00 pm|
|6th||Belgrade||3:00 am||1:00 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.|
|7th||Mohács||8:00 am||12:00 pm|
|8th||Bratislava||4:30 pm||11:00 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.|
|9th||Vienna||7:00 am||11:00 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.|
|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.|
