Best Danube River Cruises
The Danube is one of the most popular river cruises in Europe, with 4 countries and 7 cities to visit.
The route will take you from Budapest to Vienna, Nuremberg, Linz and Prague.
You’ll get to enjoy the best views of each city as well as their museums, historical buildings and landmarks.
Budapest is the capital and the largest city of Hungary.
It is one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, and it’s a great place to visit on any journey along the Danube.
Vienna, Austria – 2 days
Vienna’s nickname is “City of Music,” and it has earned this title in part because of its famous composers, including Mozart and Beethoven.
But Vienna is also a city of art and culture, with the largest gallery museum in the world (The Kunsthistorisches Museum).
It is a city rich with history and tradition; one can walk down streets that date back to Roman times or visit ancient castles where kings once ruled.
And yet at the same time modernity thrives in Vienna; you will find shops on every corner selling designer clothes and high-end jewelry, as well as museums featuring cutting-edge exhibitions from around Europe.
If you love beautiful architecture then there are few better places than Vienna: from majestic palaces along elegant boulevards to churches dating back centuries ago—the city has them all!
Linz, Austria – 1 day
You arrive in a city steeped in history and brimming with culture.
Linz is the birthplace of Johann Strauss, the composer most famous for writing the waltzes that are synonymous with Vienna.
It’s also home to one of the largest modern art museums in Europe, which boasts works by Picasso and Kandinsky among others.
The city’s annual festival celebrates all things musical: classical music concerts take place outdoors while jazz musicians perform inside churches.
If you’re interested in seeing how Linz was before it became such an important cultural center, visit its impressive hillside castle, which has been painstakingly restored since being constructed during the Middle Ages
Regensburg (Nuremberg), Germany – 2 days
Regensburg is a city on the Danube River in southern Germany.
It is known for its beautiful old city, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
If you are only planning to travel through Regensburg for one day or two, there are several ways to see the sights and get an idea of why this place was so important during medieval times.
First stop: Stadtamhof
This area of town is near the center of Regensburg and offers a view of all four riverside gates.
This gate was once part of the defensive wall that protected Regensburg from attack during medieval times. From here you can walk over to Stadtturm (City Tower), which has been standing since 1069 and offers panoramic views of town from its top floor!
Prague, Czech Republic – 3 days
Prague is a city of bridges, baroque architecture, and more than 1,000 historical monuments.
It is the capital and largest city in the Czech Republic.
Founded by Bohemian King Vratislaus I, Prague has been an important cultural center for centuries.
Named one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites in 1992 for its rich history and beautiful architecture, Prague also has many tourist attractions such as Charles Bridge (Karlův most), Petřín hill with its observation tower and funicular railway lines up to Strahov Monastery (Strahovský klášter) or Jewish Cemetery (židovské hřbitovy). You can visit these landmarks on a walking tour through Old Town Square.
River party (Budapest) – 1 day
On the last night of your cruise, you’ll have the chance to party in Budapest!
This night will be filled with dancing and fun as we float down the Danube to where it meets up with the river Szajna.
You’ll then be able to explore this beautiful city at night as you’ve never seen before.
This is a one-night only event so make sure you don’t miss out on all of the excitement!
