Gems of Danube

Embark on a guided bike tour along the river from Dürnstein to Melk

Your journey along the Danube River—Europe’s second longest waterway—kicks off in lively Budapest. But before setting sail aboard the Scenic Amber, survey the Parliament Building, stroll along the Danube Promenade, and grab a drink at a ruin pub.

The first stop on this weeklong cruise is Vienna, the capital of Austria. Here, you’ll visit the Belvedere Museum—home to works by Claude Monet and Vincent van Gogh—and the Palais Liechtenstein, where you’ll enjoy a private Viennese concert.

Next, embark on a two-hour guided bike tour along the river from Dürnstein to Melk.

Or opt to travel via ship and spend the day wandering the halls of the Benedictine Abbey.

In Salzburg, where The Sound of Music was filmed, meander through the Mirabell Palace and Gardens or pay a visit to Mozart’s former residence.

This river cruise concludes in Nuremberg, but not before you get the chance to sample beer from one of the world’s oldest monastic breweries—Weltenburg Abbey—just outside of Regensburg.
