(Welcome Dinner)

Day 5: Regensburg
Spend the morning discovering Regensburg’s long line of dukes, kings and bishops that called the former Bavarian capital and Free Imperial City home. Regensburg boasts the largest medieval old town north of the Alps (over 1,500 listed buildings), a prominent skyline, and a large collection of museums, exhibits and theaters. Find your need for speed with a tour of the state-of-the-art BMW factory. Tour the carmaker’s futuristic plant and learn how it’s cranked out millions of automobiles. Futuristic and antiquated, it’s the best of both worlds in Regensburg.

Day 6: Straubing, Deggendorf, Vilshofen
Nestled between Regensburg and Passau sits a town surrounded by the foothills of the Bavarian Forest, Deggendorf. Journey deep into the alluring Bavarian Forest National Park, Germany’s first national park, and discover outdoor leisure at its best. When you’re not gaping at its remarkable rolling hills, low-lying mountains and towering trees, you’ll have the opportunity to visit a Theresienthal crystal glass factory, complete with a horse-drawn carriage ride, fresh-baked bread and schnapps. In Straubing, uncover the Bavarian town’s deep-rooted love for all things food and drink. Amidst its bustling town center lined with shops, offices, pedestrian areas and restaurants serving up traditional German food and beer, Straubing is a city with a fascinating story and its fair share of Gothic-style buildings and cathedrals.

Day 7: Vilshofen, Passau, Engelhartszell
A new day brings new experiences in the “City of Three Rivers,” Passau, where the Danube, Inn and Ilz rivers join together. Take to the city by foot and explore its splendid mix of old and new. Medieval lanes, tunnels, cathedrals and archways fuse with modern shopping malls and buildings. Marvel at the Italian Baroque-style St. Stephen’s Church, which holds the second largest church pipe organ in the world.

Day 8: Weissenkirchen
Start your day in the heart of the Danube Valley, strolling through Weissenkirchen’s idyllic wine village while sampling mouthwatering Austrian pastries. If you’ve had one too many pastries, you’ll enjoy a hike through one of the area’s most picturesque vineyards. Named for its white church that dominates the landscape, the city is flanked by vineyard-lined hills, historic houses and beautiful courtyards. Melk Abbey is a Baroque monastery and sits atop a rocky formation overlooking the Danube. Aside from its stunning architecture and panoramic views of Wachau Valley below, its interior boasts pure opulence in every room. There’s nothing like it.

Day 9: Vienna
On this day, explore the “City of Waltzes” and dive into its vast artistic and musical legacy with your choice of tours. The city is known for its Imperial palaces, famous residents and expansive art collections. See the highlights as you take in Old Town’s art and food, including scrumptious pastries, or discover Viennese history at the World Museum Vienna, renowned for its collection of Habsburg family treasures. (Farewell Dinner)

Day 10: Vienna (Disembark)
Disembark the ship. If your cruise package includes a group departure transfer or if you have purchased a private departure transfer, you will be transferred to Vienna International Airport for your flight home.
