Danube River

Captured in art, poetry and music, the Danube River is one of the world's most romantic waterways. Itineraries wind through Germany and Austria, and often to Slovakia and Hungary as well. A few travel all the way to the river's end at the Black Sea.

You can see the half-timbered homes of Nuremberg and the baroque architecture of Vienna. Visit the splendid Benedictine abbey of Melk, with its library of 16,000 books, and enjoy a concert on Europe's largest church organ in Passau. Take in the sweeping views of Budapest from the Fisherman's Bastion, and explore the well-preserved Old Town and 18th-century Primatial Palace of Bratislava.

Holiday cruises are popular, taking place from late November through December. On these trips, you can visit the festive outdoor Christmas markets set up in town plazas and cathedral squares throughout Germany and Austria.

Our sailings are hassle-free and easy to budget. Experienced tour directors take care of all the day-to-day details, while expert guides in each city help you make the most out of your time in port. And, so much is included in the price you pay up front, including your stateroom, meals and entertainment on board and sightseeing excursions.
