Blue Danube Discovery Cruise Itinerary

This 7-night Danube Cruise visits some of Europe’s most iconic landmarks. Gently float through heritage, history and culture with fabulous river views, five-star cuisine and a selection of fascinating itineraries and excursions.

Day 1

Budapest

Embark in Budapest.

Day 2

Bratislava

Join a guided walking tour and discover the ‘Coronation City’, home of 11 Hungarian monarchs all crowned here between 1536 and 1830 or take the Bratislava Castle hike, with magnificent city views. Try local fare on the Tastes of Bratislava tour with Bratislava’s famous goulash and potato dumplings at the top of the menu.

Day 3

Vienna

Stroll through Vienna’s history with famous locations like the Imperial Palace of the Habsburgs, the Opera House and the UNESCO-designated city centre. If you want to explore further afield, then join the guided bike tour. The afternoon is free for guests to discover this cultural and cosmopolitan city, and no trip to Vienna would be complete without sampling that famous Viennese apple strudel!

Day 4

Dürnstein

Explore Dürnstein on a guided walking tour with wine tasting. The more adventurous can choose a hike to the fortress, but why not savour the Apricot and Sweets tour delights if this sounds too much like hard work? The second excursion is to the beautiful UNESCO Wachau Valley, or you can enjoy a Danube bike tour with a third excursion option, a guided visit to a Benedictine Abbey.

Day 5

Passau

Enjoy a leisurely morning exploring Passau on the ‘City of Three Rivers’ walking tour or take the River Inn bike tour. There is also a Passau Castle hike to the Veste Oberhaus, one of the largest castles in Europe. It’s a short hike, and the views are picturesque.

Day 6

Regensburg

Discover the medieval centre of this ancient UNESCO city, or if you want to sample Bavarian delicacies and watch the world go by, then the Tastes of Bavaria tour will hit the spot. There is also a bike tour to the striking Walhalla, a temple modelled in the style of the Parthenon in Athens and located high above the Danube.

Day 7

Nuremberg

Nuremberg has a rich heritage with many historical landmarks that visitors can enjoy on a medieval city tour. Fast forward to the 20th century, and Nuremberg played a pivotal role in the Nazi war machine, which passengers can discover on a World War II tour. The Tastes of Franconia excursion is a chance to sample some famous Franconian specialities, including Bratwurst, red beer and gingerbread.

Blue Danube Discovery Cruise Review

“It was the low passenger numbers that sold this cruise to us, that and the traditional style and quality of the vessel which was as important to us as the port excursions. Everything is beautifully organised and luxurious, and this theme continues when you go ashore as the itineraries are meticulously planned with a mix of famous landmarks and more unusual and thoughtful tours. We’ve cruised the Danube before, but this voyage was a real notch up.”

Ian and Sarah Middleton, Reading
