The Legendary Danube River Cruise

Start your voyage with a visit to historic Prague, “the city of a hundred spires.” Celebrate the beauty and history of the Danube River, one of Europe’s most fabled rivers, as you cruise from Nuremberg through the Main-Danube Canal across the Continental Divide. Visit centuries-old towns and marvel at the beautiful vistas slowly gliding past. Enter Austria and cruise through the lush Wachau wine region, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and conclude your European river cruise vacation with visits to two grand capitals, Vienna and Budapest.

TRAVELOGUE NOTE: Architecture and history buffs will thoroughly enjoy The Legendary Danube River Cruise stop in Regensburg, Germany. This is the only major medieval city in Germany to remain completely intact. You can stroll along Regensburg's well-preserved streets, that will transport you through a time capsule, where you'll experience what it's like to walk down a 14th-century avenue in the 21st century.
