Infographic: The Danube

Deciding on a river cruise itinerary can be difficult, first of all there is a vast choice of rivers across the globe, let alone in Europe. And even when you narrow it down to one river, there’s a whole choice of itineraries, each visiting a variety of destinations. That’s why we’re here to help make your choice easier & outline the highlights of a Danube river cruise in an infographic!

The Danube River is undoubtedly one of the most popular choices when it comes to selecting a river cruise holiday! Flowing through a total of 10 different countries, stretching over two thousand miles from Germany to the Black Sea, the Danube is enormous! 

Rich in European culture; art, music, literature and culinary delights, a river cruise along the Danube will not disappoint. The river is made up of three sections, the upper, the middle and the lower – all of which are accessible on a river cruise. No matter which itinerary you choose, you’ll visit an array of medieval towns and grand historic cities.

Cruise the lower Danube, often from Budapest towards the Black Sea (or in reverse) for a Balkan adventure. Highlights include Belgrade - Serbia’s cosmopolitan capital, the dramatic Iron Gates and Bucharest – “The Paris of the East”. Or cruise the upper Danube, often from Budapest to Passau (or in reverse) and take in Vienna - Austria’s capital & "the city of music", Melk Abbey and the Wachau Valley.
