River Cruise Itinerary
DAY 1: Prague
Arrive at Václav Havel Airport Prague. If your cruise/tour package includes a group arrival transfer or if you have purchased a private arrival transfer, you will be greeted by a Uniworld representative and transferred to the hotel.
 
DAY 2: Prague
Is it possible not to be completely enchanted by Prague, with its fabled skyline of spires, fortress-like castle, beautifully preserved architecture and iconic Charles Bridge? A magnet for generations of artists, writers, scientists and composers, Prague is famous for its dynamic energy and elegant ambiance (and the beers here are pretty amazing, too). A thousand years of architecture, from ornate Gothic to fanciful postmodern, have been beautifully preserved in Prague, which has been a magnet for artists, writers, scientists and composers for centuries. It also boasts great beer, a lively art scene and up-and-coming fashion designers, making it a fun as well as a beautiful place to visit.

Featured Excursion:
Choice of Prague Old Town and Charles Bridge walking tour or Hradcany Castle visit
 
Generations Excursion:
Prague for kids
 
DAY 3: Prague, Transfer to Nuremberg (Embark)
Nuremberg will forever be associated with the post-WWII Nuremberg trials, but the city’s profound historical and cultural significance stretches back many centuries before that. You’ll gain a newfound understanding and appreciation of both aspects of the city today on an in-depth tour with a local expert. Leave Prague this morning and travel via motorcoach to Nuremberg, where your ship awaits. Before you embark on your river voyage, you’ll have time to enjoy lunch on your own and then explore historic Nuremberg and visit sites associated with the rise and fall of the Third Reich. One of Germany’s leading cities for many centuries, Nuremberg’s glowing heritage as a center of German arts, culture and economy was, sadly, also responsible for its disastrous experience in the 1930s and 1940s.
 
Featured Excursion:
Nuremberg panoramic city tour with WII rally grounds visit
 
DAY 4: Cruising the Main-Danube Canal, Regensburg
You have your choice of adventures in Regensburg, famous for its beautiful, UNESCO protected old city center. “Regensburg is so beautifully situated; this region had to attract a town,” wrote Goethe in his Diary of an Italian Voyage. And attract a town it did, but not due to its beautiful location alone. Ambitious and farseeing locals built a bridge (Steinerne Brücke, or Stone Bridge) over the Danube back in the 12th century, making Regensburg an international trading hub. Because so many of the handsome buildings from that period remain, UNESCO declared the old city center a World Heritage Site in 2006.

Featured Excursion:
Choice of BMW factory visit or "Baroque 500" Thurn and Taxis castle visit or "Let's Go" Regensburg hiking experience
 
Generations Excursion:
Fascination BMW or student stroll
 
DAY 5: Passau
Passau is a crossroads in more ways than one—three rivers meet here and three nations nearly do, making for a fascinating cultural mosaic. Get to know the town and its main claim to fame, Europe’s largest pipe organ, or enjoy an invigorating riverside hike or bike ride.
 
Featured Excursion:
Bike the famous Danube Valley from Engelhartszell to Passau or Choice of Passau walking discovery tour or “Let's Go” scenic Bavarian river biking or "Let's Go" hike along the Ilz River
 
Generations Excursions:
Bike the famous Danube Valley from Engelhartszell to Passau or Uniworld looks for the next top model of Bavarian kids fashion, and dumpling workshop onboard
 
DAY 6: Engelhartszell, cruising the Danube River
This may be the most leisurely day of your entire journey, as you spend it onboard, admiring the scenery, chatting with new friends and perhaps enjoying a massage in the spa. Your ship leaves Germany behind today, sailing into Austria and cruising through the Schlögener Schinge—a hairpin loop in the Danube that was once very hazardous for ships.
 
DAY 7: Spitz, cruising the Wachau Valley
Your ship will dock in Spitz, midway through the glorious landscape, where you are invited to enjoy an exclusive sparkling wine reception at Artstatten Castle. Later in the day, you’ll want to find a comfortable seat in the lounge or on the Sun Deck as your ship cruises through the Wachau Valley. Over the eons, the Danube cut a gorge through the foothills of the Bohemian Mountains, resulting in a 19-mile (30-kilometer) stretch of riverine scenery so beautiful, UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Landscape.
 
Featured Excursion:
"Exclusive" sparkling wine reception at Artstatten Castle with Habsburg royalty
 
Generations Excursion:
Treasure hunt hike in the vineyards
 
DAY 8: Vienna
A city tour will show you the architectural highlights of the Austrian capital as well as the legendary opera house in the heart of the city. Or, indulge your passion for art with visits to two distinctively different collections—a “cabinet of curiosities” collected by the Habsburgs and the Belvedere’s extraordinary cache of paintings by Klimt and other renowned artists. The grand dame of the Danube, Vienna was the heart of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and remains, to this day, the political and cultural center of Austria. Klimt painted here; Beethoven and Mozart composed here; Freud developed his theories here. It’s a treasure trove of splendid architecture, astonishing art collections and inviting cafés—and today it is yours to explore.

Featured Excursion:
Choice of Vienna panoramic highlights with Old Town food and art walk or Vienna panoramic highlights World Museum Vienna: the manic Habsburg collector's treasures
 
Generations Excursion:
Segway ride in Prater Park, Ferris Wheel, and see how Sacher Torte or Schönbrunn is made
 
DAY 9: Budapest
Located on opposite sides of the Danube, Buda and Pest each has a distinctive character and allure all its own. Explore this dynamic and multi-faceted city with your choice of excursions—you can see it from a local’s perspective on our exclusive walking tour, or cover more ground with a panoramic tour. Vibrant Budapest, Hungary’s capital, offers an enchanting combination of East and West, old and new. Even its geography is made up of two parts—Buda (the hills) and Pest (the flatlands)—divided by the Danube. Appropriately enough, you have your choice of two different ways to explore it today.

Featured Excursion:
Choice of Budapest: panoramic highlights or “Do as the Locals Do” Budapest walking tour
 
Generations Excursion:
Hospital in the Rock
 
In the evening, a special Captain’s Welcome Reception and Dinner will be prepared for you.
 
DAY 10: Budapest (Disembark)
You’ve experienced the best of Prague and the Danube River, sampling myriad culinary delights and exploring fascinating stops along the way. Now your journey comes to a close (unless you’ve booked a Uniworld post-cruise tour of Budapest) and it’s time to disembark the ship. If your cruise/tour includes a group departure transfer or if you have purchased a private departure transfer, you will be transferred to Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport for your flight home. Your Uniworld adventure may be over, but we know you’ll enjoy the memories you’ve made for years to come.
