Discover Austria’s beautiful architecture and breathtaking scenery from forested alpine valleys and lush riverside vineyards to its classical cities and peaceful villages on a river cruise.
Our 'Beautiful Blue Danube' cruise starts and ends in the lovely city of Vienna, with its superb historical architecture, and travels through some stunning countryside both upstream and downstream of the city including the vine-clad banks of the Wachau Valley. Stops along the way include the riverside town of Dürnstein and the Benedictine Abbey of Melk, from where there are splendid views over the Danube.
Vienna is often called the ‘City of Music’ in honour of its rich musical heritage and also has a long standing tradition of art and culture. Some of the main sights to discover are the impressive Vienna Opera house, home to the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, the Hofburg Palace, and St Stephens Cathedral.
