Iconic Danube 2019 Scenic River Cruise
This journey along the Danube demands you take your time and savour the sights around you. Few waterways have carved such an important route through Europe, so it's only right that you pay the river – and its historical treasures – the respect it deserves. During the Danube's journey through lower Germany, central Austria and out into Hungary, some of Europe's most distinctive cities unveil a treasure trove of cultures and rich historical legacies. Travel from Passau and take your time on the water as you cruise further east, visiting Linz, Melk, Vienna and Budapest, the crowning jewel of this inspiring voyage. Each destination offers a unique insight into the region, with charming old towns rubbing shoulders against majestic cityscapes.
Your journey into wonder begins here. Raise your glass to the days ahead at this evening’s welcome reception.
