The Beautiful Blue Danube

Map of the Danube, Rhine & Main Rivers
Map of the Danube, Rhine & Main Rivers

Inspiring composers through the centuries the Danube passes through some of Europe's most beautiful and historic cities. Central to the story of Europe this river truly deserves its enchating reputation.

Its 3000 kilometre length flows through 10 countries - how many can you name? Rising in the German Black Forest and flowing into the Black Sea in Romania, along its route it winds through no less than four capital cities.

Thanks to the completion of the Main-Danube canal cruises can now combine stretches of the Rhine and Danube rivers. For those with a little more time to explore, we are able to provide itineraries for 7, 12 or 14 nights to appreciate the diversity of Europe and its ports between Amsterdam and Budapest or even through to Belgrade and to the Black Sea.

Nuremberg

Nuremberg can be described as the archetypal Medieval German city - encircled by defensive walls and red roofed buildings. Home of the pocket watch in peaceful times and also the famous Nuremberg trials of the Nazi hierarchy in 1945. There is an enormous documentation centre of the Nazi party and a permanent exhibition, including courtroom 600, which was the venue of the trials. Kaiserburg castle is also a splendid example of gothic architecture. From Nuremberg it is possible to transfer to Prague by coach for an extended stay.

Regensburg

A walking tour of Regensburg is a must. Regensburg was founded over 2,000 years ago by Emperor Marcus Aurelius and has been designated a UNESCO world heritage site as one of Europe's best preserved medieval cities. The old town includes St Peters gothic cathedral which dates back to the 14th century. Bavarian hospitality abounds and a warm welcome can be found in one of its many beer gardens.

Budapest

Budapest is a highlight of any Danube cruise and can also be an additional extension as there is just so much to see.

The city stradles the Danube having been formed by the unification of Buda & Óbuda on the west-bank with Pest on the east-bank in 1873. Former capital of Austria-Hungary the city has a wealth of breathtaking architecture and cuture. Regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in the world reflected in the extensive World Heritage Site.

Passau

A city built on merchants trade, its medieval merchants houses stand beautiful and proud. A great fire in 1662 brought after it a rebuilt city with Italian Baroque influence. Narrow streets lead through to St Stephens Cathedral which houses Europe's largest pipe organ.

Melk

Melk is home to the wonderous melk abbey, an ivory and gold Baroque imperial fortress which was built between 1702-1739 by architect Jakob Prandtauer . Today it is a Benedictine monastery and the black robed monks can be seen walking around the site which also houses a school, a museum and an 80,000 manuscript library.

Wachau Valley

Austria's Wachau valley is a 24 mile stretch of countryside which has been designated a UNESCO site. It is a stunning place to cruise through due to its castle ruins, walnut trees and apricot orchards. Between Melk and Krems one can find a wine region which has vineyards dating back to the 9th century.

Vienna

polaroid style photo Hungarian Parliament, Budapest

The other side of the Wachau valley lies the home of such famous composers as Strauss, Beethoven, Mozart, Schubert, Brahms and Hayden. Music is very much the life blood of the Austrian capital. Another tradition to savour is a stop at one of Vienna's Kaffeehaus' for a slice of sachertorte chocolate cake and a smooth local coffee.

Saltzburg

The incredibly pretty town of Salzburg has been recognised by UNESCO for its well preserved medieval town core and musical heritage, its most famous son of course being Mozart. A walking tour is the best way to see the sites of Salzburg via its narrow cobbled streets and colourful gardens. A tour will be sure to take in the Hohensalzburg Fortress, the town's most eye catching landmark.

Bratislava

The only capital city in the world that borders two other countries. Not to be missed are the views from its castle, originally built in the 10th century from which Austria and Hungary can be spied.

Bucharest

Just off the Danube, Bucharest, Capital of Romania, displays an ecletic mix of architecture from the neo-classical to the modern with Bauhaus, Art Deco and Communist-era exaples along the way.

Periods in and out of Ottoman, Habsburg and Russian rule have defined this city for over 300 years. Now Capital to an independent Romania urban regeneration and conservsation of its historic centre is transforming the city.

Things to do onboard and ashore

Ships tend to offer an on board enrichment programme which can include German lessons, lectures on the life of Mozart, sausage making culinary demonstrations and instruction in wine and food pairing.

A week on the Danube can be combined with a week on the Rhine, allowing passengers to travel from Amsterdam in Northern Europe all the way to Budapest. This combination is usually known as the Grand European or Ultimate European River Cruise. A truly splendid and indulgent way to see the many different faces of historic Europe.

Extend Your Stay

polaroid style photo Historic Bridges, Prague

Why not extend your stay for a few nights in either Prague or Budapest to really explore these beautiful cities?

Off the main river cruise route Prague is an enchanting city, steeped in history and remains surprisingly unchanged since the 19th Century

Budapest also has a rich history and stunning architecture not least of which the magnificent Hungarian Parliament building.
