Make your Danube River cruise an active experience on any one of these tours with multiple hiking opportunities. Arguably the best place to hike along the winding Danube is in the Little Carpathians just outside of Bratislava, Slovakia. Here, you can trek to the promontory rectangular Bratislava Castle. Another great hiking option on Danube cruises is a light hike from Weissenkirchen in Austria through the Wachau Valley to the fortress where Richard the Lionheart was held prisoner. In Passau, Germany, hike to the 13th century Veste Oberhaus Fortress. Metropolitan Prague also makes for a great trailhead for hikes. Let us know what you want to see on your Danube River cruise.
