  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The grand dame of the Danube, Vienna was the heart of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and remains, to this day, the political and cultural center of Austria. Klimt painted here, Beethoven and Mozart composed here and Freud developed his theories here. It’s a treasure trove of splendid architecture, astonishing art collections and inviting cafés—and today, it is yours to explore. A city tour will show the architectural highlights of the Austrian capital as well as the legendary opera house in the heart of the city. Or, indulge the passion for art with visits to two distinctively different collections—a “cabinet of curiosities” collected by the Habsburgs and the Belvedere’s extraordinary cache of paintings by Klimt and other renowned artists.

Day 4 Emmersdorf (Spitz)

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
Find a comfortable seat in the lounge or on the Sun Deck today as the ship cruises through the Wachau Valley toward Emmersdorf and Spitz. Over the eons, the Danube cut a gorge through the foothills of the Bohemian mountains, resulting in a 19-mile (30-kilometer) stretch of riverine scenery so beautiful, UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Landscape. Castle ruins dominate hilltops, baroque church towers appear on the riverbanks, marking historic villages and splendid abbeys and apricot orchards and vineyards cling to the rocky slopes. Some of Austria’s finest white wines are produced from grapes ripening on the dry-stone terraces above the river where grapes have been grown for 2,000 years. The ship will dock in Emmersdorf, midway through this glorious landscape.

Choice of Private Artstetten Castle reception with a member of Habsburg royalty or Spitz “Village Day” or Spitz Village stroll or "Let's Go" walk the vineyards of Spitz

Day 5 Engelhartszell | Passau

  • Ship
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The ship will cruise through a scenic highlight of the Danube early this morning, the Schlögener Schlinge—a hairpin loop in the Danube that was once very hazardous for ships and is now a lovely, serene stretch of water. Leave Austria behind today and arrive in the first German port of call, Passau. Passau is where three rivers meet—the Inn, the Ilz and the Danube—and three nations almost meet: Austria, Germany and the Czech Republic, making for a fascinating cultural mosaic. Get to know the town and its main claim to fame, Europe’s largest pipe organ, or join an invigorating riverside hike or bike ride.

Featured Excursion: “Let's Go” scenic Bavarian river biking

Choice of Passau walking tour or "Let's Go" hike along the Ilz River

Choice of Regensburg walk with Thurn and Taxis castle visit or BMW factory visit or "Let's Go" Regensburg hiking experience

Day 7 Roth | Nuremberg

Featured Excursion: Nuremberg city tour with WWII Rally Grounds and Documentation Center visits

Generations Excursion: Nuremberg climbing forest
**This excursion is only available on sailings that belong to the Generations program.

On board, come out on deck or find a window seat and watch the ship navigate a series of locks as it travels across the “continental divide” and through one of the modern world’s greatest feats of engineering—the Main-Danube canal. A special Captain’s Farewell Reception and Dinner will be prepared this evening.

Day 8 Nuremberg (Disembark) | Transfer to Prague

Disembark the ship early and set sights on the “city of a hundred spires” as you transfer to Prague via motorcoach.

Day 9 Prague

A magnet for generations of artists, writers, scientists and composers, Prague is famous for its dynamic energy and elegant ambiance (and the beers here are pretty amazing too). A thousand years of architecture, from ornate Gothic to fanciful postmodern, has been beautifully preserved.

Choice of Prague Old Town and Charles Bridge walking tour or Hradčany Castle visit

Generations Excursion: Czech out Prague
** This excursion is only available on sailings that belong to the Generations program.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
