YOUR TRIP ITINERARY

Fly from London. Budapest is split into the sections of Buda and Pest by the Danube River. Head up to Castle Hill, a UNESCO World Heritage Site overlooking the Danube on the Buba side of the city, for sightseeting and lunch at a local café. See Fisherman’s Bastion, with its Neo-Romanesque design, and admire the stained glass windows and centuries of history in the 14th- century, late-Gothic Matthias Church (may be closed on some days due to services). 

Board your riverboat this afternoon in Budapest, and meet your crew at the welcome reception followed by dinner this evening, as you begin to cruise the Danube River aboard MS Joy or ms Savor, bound for Bratislava, Slovakia.

Meals: B, L, D

Lodging: Aboard your 443-ft. riverboat

 

Our resident expert takes you inside contemporary Slovakia and Bratislava for a look at the region's politics, economy, religion, social order, preservation and emergence of the arts. After lunch aboard the riverboat, 

you'll have a choice of exploring Bratislava's cobblestoned, vehicle-free historic city center on a eloquently chronicled in its 13th-century Old Town Hall, Baroque Habsburg-era palaces, the Opera House, Slovak Philharmonic Hall, and St. Martin’s Cathedral – or setting off on a bicycling excursion through the city's “Iron Curtain Area.” Back on board the riverboat, dinner tonight introduces you to a glimpse of daily life in Slovakia with a taste of regional cuisine and an a performance by a

talented troupe of Slovak dancers.

Meals: B, L, D

Your riverboat arrives overnight in Vienna, Austria, where an introductory tour of this former capital of the old Habsburg Empire – and its grand boulelvard, the Ringstrasse – precedes a walking tour focusing on your choice of either medieval Vienna or the Jewish district of old Vienna, or on a bike ride in the city. The rest of the day is yours to explore this famous city as you please. Later, nothing compares to the royal treatment and pageantry you’ll experience tonight at our private Imperial Evening in the opulent Palais Pallavicini, a private Baroque palace in Vienna that film buffs may have spotted in the 1940s film noir classic The

Third Man. Welcome cocktails and dinner precede an unforgettable spectacle of beautiful ball gowns and a musical performance celebrating the legacy of Mozart. Meals: B, L, D

Lodging: Aboard your 443-ft. riverboat



A choice of sightseeing this morning features a tour of the Habsburgs’ Schönbrunn Palace, an architectural masterpiece and Austrian cultural treasure, or the amazing Imperial Apartments at the Hofburg, Austria’s official presidential residence. Then, shuttles are at the ready to bring you back to the riverboat before we cruise the Danube River through Austria's Wachau Valley; glide past castles and abbeys to medieval Dürnstein, where you'll arrive late this evening.

Meals: B, L, D

Lodging: Aboard your 443-ft. riverboat



Dock in Dürnstein for a closer look at its 16th-century Baroque houses and 13th-century Romanesque church on a walking tour along cobblestone streets; you may also choose to tour a local monastery, or take a bicycle ride.

Enjoy some free time in this charming riverside town, perhaps taking an invigorating climb up the steps to

the ruins of Kuenringerburg, a hilltop castle above the town where Richard the Lionhearted was held for ransom during the Crusades. Sample the fruits of the Wachau Valley vineyards during a wine tasting at an authentic Austrian tavern. Back aboard, you'll continue to cruise the Danube River through the Wachau Valley, Austria's lush wine- growing region that was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its well-preserved medieval landscapes, to Linz; after dinner onboard, enjoy a show put on by members 

of the riverboat crew.

Meals: B, L, D

Lodging: Aboard your 443-ft. riverboat



Your boat stays docked in Linz today, with a choice of how you spend your day – full-day excursions to Salzburg (Austria), or Cesky Krumlov in the Czech Republic, or remaining in Linz. A setting for The Sound of Music, Salzburg is enticing with Baroque architecture, painted wrought-iron signage, ornate church towers, and grand palaces. Our walking tour explores Old Town, Mirabell

Gardens, and Mozart’s birthplace. Enjoy time on your own to

have lunch and experience the sights as you wish, perhaps taking the funicular to see the fortress overlooking the town; Salzburg holds an important place in the cultural fabric of Austria. Or travel with us through beautiful landscapes to Cesky Krumlov, which has been called a living gallery of elegant Renaissance-era buildings. Also graced with an incredibly well-preserved medieval heritage and charming ambiance, the town has earned its coveted designation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its historic importance and physical beauty. A walking tour takes you to part of

Krumlov Castle; it’s worth climbing the many steps to see firsthand the medieval, Renaissance and Rococo design found inside, along with the stunning views of the town below. A third option today provides an opportunity to remain in Linz for time explore as you please on your own before returning to the riverboat for dinner.

Wake up this morning in Engelhartszell, a pretty town on the Danube in Upper Austria. After a visit to a local private home (and a taste of local cake, sweets and coffee), you'll have a choice of a walking tour of town including 18th-century Engelhartszell Abbey and Danube World, or a guided tour of the Jochenstein Lock on the Danube, through which ships navigate through the Wachau Valley. Following lunch aboard the riverboat, you may, if you wish, join us for an optional bicycle excursion along the Danube (a fairly rigorous bike ride, for experienced cyclists only). Take in the views from the sun deck, lounge, or the windows of your outside cabin as your riverboat glides into Germany, bound overnight for your final destination, Vilshofen; enjoy a farewell reception followed by dinner onboard tonight.
