Itinerary

Fly from the UK to the beautiful city of Nuremberg. On arrival, transfer to your hotel.

Discover Nuremberg then board your ship.

FREEDOM OF CHOICE: Explore Regensburg’s atmospheric World Heritage-listed city centre or perhaps get active and take a guided bike ride to the Walhalla memorial.

FREEDOM OF CHOICE: From Passau, head to Salzburg to visit some of the sights featured in Roger and Hammerstein’s The Sound of Music. Or set off into the Czech Republic, where Česky Krumlov awaits. Either way, re-board your ship in Austria’s Linz. Alternatively, explore the town of Passau, followed by a relaxing day on board cruising to Linz.

FREEDOM OF CHOICE: Roam Dürnstein’s cobblestone lanes at your leisure. Or perhaps take a guided bike ride along the river from Melk to Dürnstein.
Visit the statuary-adorned Melk Abbey. It’s then onto more remarkable scenery as you cruise through the Wachau Valley to Dürnstein, where you’ll choose your sightseeing.

SIGNATURE EXPERIENCE: After dinner, head to the Family of Liechtenstein’s City Palace in the heart of Vienna, where we have arranged an exclusive cocktail party and private recital, just for you. A full orchestra will perform classical masterpieces by Mozart and Strauss. You will also be enchanted by an operatic recital and some members of the Mozart Boys’ Choir.
FREEDOM OF CHOICE: Perhaps take in the city’s many landmarks along the Ringstrasse, including St Stephen’s Cathedral. The 1,441-room Schönbrunn Palace and its gardens are a favourite. Or tick another country off your list and journey to Slovakia’s Bratislava. Otherwise, get active with a bike ride to Klosterneuburg Monastery.

SIGNATURE EXPERIENCE: In Esztergom, set out on a guided tour to discover this picturesque town and its historic buildings. Then, follow in the footsteps of the Habsburg Empire as you board the Grand Empress steam train, bound for Budapest. See inside some of the ornately adorned carriages from the early 1900s and be treated like royalty as you savour lunch on board. On arrival in Budapest, enjoy a glass of sparkling at Budapest’s Royal Waiting Room – a rather fitting way to end this opulent journey. Later, return to your ship. Operates on all departures between April and September.

Enjoy a morning city tour of Budapest taking in its historic monuments, including Fisherman’s Bastion and Heroes’ Square. The afternoon is at leisure to further explore.

Sadly, the time has come to say goodbye. Upon disembarkation, you will be transferred to the airport for your return flight to the UK.
