Danube Discovery & Prague

Itinerary, Prices and Dates

Vienna to Nuremberg & Prague 10 Days

Explore the wonders of the Danube and the pride of the Czech Republic—Prague on this luxurious, all-inclusive European river cruise.

Sheer cliffs rise above the mighty river, with tiny baroque villages nestled at their feet. As you cruise through the heart of the old Habsburg Empire, you’ll find stunning scenery, beautiful libraries, astonishing frescoes, medieval city walls and Gothic cathedrals, encountering the perfect mix of big-city glamour and small-town simplicity.

Explore historic capitals, including Vienna, home to a treasure trove of imperial art; Prague, the beautifully preserved Gothic, Renaissance and baroque city that boasts a unique architectural heritage of its own; UNESCO-designated Regensburg; and the old walled city of Nuremberg. Discover 17th-century Italian artistry in Passau, medieval intrigue and modern-day microbrewing in Straubing and magnificent baroque architecture in Melk.
