What to see & do in Austria
Austria has been a keystone in the history and culture of central Europe and is crossed by the Danube River. A river cruise through this historic region of Europe acquaints you with the towns of:

Vienna:
  • Schönbrunn Palace – with over 1400 rooms, it is maybe the most important palace in the whole country and a fine example of Baroque architecture.
  • Hofburg Palaces – for more than 800 years, this has been an imperial palace in Vienna.
  • Grinzing – a district known for its wineries.
  • Heuriger Tavern – one of Grinzing's renowned taverns which many of our cruises visit.
Melk:
  • Quaint and traditional Dürnstein village
  • Built nearly a thousand years ago, the Benedictine Melk Abbey that keeps watch over the Danube River below.
Wachau Valley:
Remarkable not only for its breathtaking natural beauty but also historically relevant as a region of fortresses and vineyards and also where Richard the Lionheart was once imprisoned.
