Cities selected just for you

The Danube Flow – 8 days - Budapest-Budapest

Budapest. You da best.

Relax. You’re cruising on the Danube, and worries don’t exist on this fine-looking waterway. Germany, Austria or Hungary? You don’t have to choose. You’ll get to explore all three on this 8-day cruise that is part small town, part big city and all parts good times. Regensburg’s Old Town has an open- air café feel and the highest density of pubs and bars in Germany (and that’s no small feat). Austria’s Wachau Valley is a UNESCO World Heritage site if we’ve ever seen one—its Benedictine Abbey houses the most famous library in Northern Europe. Hungary’s lively capital city offers double the fun, with Buda on one side and Pest on the other. And that’s just the beginning.
