Through the natural beauty of Austria’s Wachau Valley, with stops in quaint towns and iconic cities, you’ll fall in love with this river cruise along the Danube River.

Board your ship in Vienna and set sail for Melk, where you will visit Austria’s majestic Benedictine Abbey, one of Europe’s largest, and where Benedictine monks still stroll amidst the sacred walls. From the Abbey’s terrace, you can take in the breathtaking views of the Danube River, and the surrounding countryside. Dürnstein lies in the heart of the picturesque Wachau Valley and is best known for its beautiful Stiftskirche with its blue façade. Above the town are the ruins of the castle where England’s Richard the Lionheart was imprisoned.

Continue your European river cruise to Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia. This dynamic city lies at the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains. There’s sightseeing with a local expert and a visit to the gothic St. Martin’s Cathedral, the coronation church for Hungary during the 16th to 19th centuries. Then it’s on to Budapest, Hungary, where your Danube river cruise vacation ends. This Danube River cruise is a must to see Austria’s striking beauty, Budapest’s shining city, and all the splendid spots between on your European river cruise vacation of a lifetime.
