Danube Dreams for Wine Lovers - Cruise Only

This enticing river cruise vacation begins in Deggendorf, Germany, then sails down the Danube River through Germany, Austria, and Slovakia to Hungary’s vibrant capital of Budapest. And as this is a cruise with a wine theme, you’ll be accompanied by our Master of Wine who’ll share his expertise at wine tastings and lectures. Passau, the “City of Three Rivers” lies at the confluence of the Danube, Inn, and Ilz Rivers. Walk the city with a Local Guide and admire the patrician houses and baroque St. Stephen’s Cathedral. In Linz, Austria, walk around the Hauptplatz, Austria’s largest medieval square which forms the center of the city and prepare your taste buds for an exclusive onboard food and wine-pairing dinner hosted by your Master of Wine. Enjoy the magnificent views as you cruise through the picturesque wine region of Wachau Valley. Stop in Melk to visit the magnificent Benedictine Abbey; and in Dürnstein, you may wish to join an interactive wine experience and tasting. Vienna, the “City of Music,” makes an immediate impression with its lavish Hofburg Imperial Palace and neo-renaissance Vienna Opera House. Enjoy a guided tour of this magical city and then take time to explore on your own. In Bratislava, Slovakia’s capital, a guided walk takes you through the delightful Old Town and a visit of gothic St. Martin’s Cathedral.</BR></BR>Lastly, a local expert shows you the must see-sights of Budapest, then takes you to visit wine cellars right in the heart of the city! A perfect ending to this timeless European river cruise.
