Once a key part of an ancient trade route, the Danube now offers a romantic, tranquil pass through fairy-tale villages, cities with cobblestone streets and majestic castles immortalised in childhood imaginations. The Danube is Europe’s second largest river, beginning at Germany’s Black Forest and flowing over 2,850 km through to the Black Sea.
Our Danube River cruises take you through the riverside gems of Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria and Romania.
Some of the European jewels you will encounter on our Danube River cruises include Regensburg, the oldest city on the banks of the Danube, the stunning St. Peter’s Cathedral in Passau, the captivating Iron Gate Gorge and, of course the glittering ‘City of Music’, Vienna. You’ll see the splendid bridges of Budapest and many castles, dynamic cities, evocative forests and still-flourishing farmland.
With so many countries and cultural discoveries to be found on our River cruises in Europe, and along the beautiful blue Danube, you may choose from a 8 day or 15-day cruise experiencing the stunning Rhine and Main rivers too.
