The River Danube

The beautiful the River Danube is steeped in history and its banks are lined with fairytale castles, fortresses, vineyards and charming towns and capital cities. Discover the heart of Europe on a Danube river cruise.

The Danube is the second longest river in Europe passing through or touching the borders of ten countries; Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Romania, Moldavia and the Ukraine. The source of this magnificent river is in the Black Forest in Germany where it begins life as a small stream, growing in strength and passing through major cities including Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest and Belgrade, en route to its final destination, the Black Sea. Creating a delta which is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Danube Delta is vital geologically and ecologically to wildlife both on its banks and in the fresh waters in its lakes and marshes.

Many beautiful towns set in stunning countryside entice visitors; Durnstein is guarded by a medieval castle, where King Richard the Lionheart was held captive during the Crusades. Bratislava, the capital city of Slovakia, is nestled amongst mountains, hills, and picturesque countryside. Steeped in history with embankments and districts declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Budapest is one of the most beautiful and romantic cities in Hungary. So much awaits visitors with magnificent castles, palatial palaces, grand churches, fabulous statues, fine art, grand squares boasting several magnificent landmarks and the largest parks and green spaces in Central Europe.

We offer two 7 night All Inclusive cruises which start in Budapest or Vienna and Cruise & Stay options are available in both Budapest and Vienna.
