Join the ship at Budapest, the ‘Queen of the Danube’, and spend time taking in the atmosphere of this historical and cultural city. Located on both sides of the river Danube, stroll around atmospheric Buda with its medieval cobbled streets, Royal Palace, museums and galleries or cross the river to experience fashionable and bustling Pest with high-end retail in leafy boulevards and Magyar cuisine.
Bratislava is the capital of Slovakia and a feast for culture vultures with art galleries, concerts and ballet. Architecturally fascinating, the diverse history and development of Bratislava are never better represented than in its famous town square, Hlavné Námestie, with the historic old town easily accessible on foot. Visit Bratislava Castle, towering over the Danube delta, a former frontier post of the Roman Empire, the 11th-century Gothic Cathedral of St. Martin and the town hall, which contains the oldest museum in the country.
Austria’s Baroque capital and the Hapsburg Empire’s former centre, Vienna, needs no introduction. Noted for its illustrious musical heritage, stroll around Vienna’s grand architecture, a blend of Italian romantic and imperial Germanic style. Enjoy gourmet cuisine and world-class coffee with easy access to the city centre, which offers an exciting cosmopolitan mix of style, culture and old-world grandeur.
Nestling on the banks of the Wachau valley of the Danube, Weissenkirchen is a refreshing contrast to the size and splendour of the city visits on this cruise. In the Wachau Valley, Weissenkirchen is a winemaking centre with vineyards dotted across the rolling green hills. Picturesque in the extreme, Weissenkirchen has a 14th-century Gothic church from which it takes its name, a museum with exhibitions and performances and a traditional Austrian wine tavern where you can sample some of the region’s finest vintages.
The third-largest city in Austria, Linz straddles the Danube and is famous for its vibrant and diverse cultural scene and is a former European Capital of Culture. Spend time in the Museum of Upper Austria and the Lentos Art Museum or check out the programme of festivals and events.
Located on the border between Austria and Germany, Passau is known as the Three Rivers City as it sits at the confluence of the Danube, Inn and Ilz. Crammed with ancient and interesting architecture, churches and museums, enjoy the beautiful riverfront promenades. Take a look at the Museum of Modern Art or the Glass Museum Passau for something a little different. A trip to Passau wouldn’t be complete without refreshments at a traditional Bavarian café with tasty local cuisine.
