Our cruises down the winding Danube River take you on an immersive tour of the cultures and traditions of 10 European countries, from the river's source in Germany, through Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania, Ukraine, and Moldova. Each of these cruises has a unique itinerary that highlights specific parts of southeastern Europe. The elegant Baroque palaces of Vienna make for a delightful stop; the medieval castles of Heidelberg and Passau dominate the German landscape; one particular traveler favorite is the food and wine tastings that you'll find in each country. Biking & hiking throughout the countryside is a great way to explore Europe, and many cruises even provide bicycles free of charge. Let us know when you're ready to start planning your Danube River cruise.
