Budapest

FEATURED EXCURSIONS: Choice of Budapest city tour OR exclusive “Do as the Locals Do” Budapest walking tour OR exclusive guided “Go Active” Budapest bike tour

Choose one of three ways to discover the wonders of the “Queen of the Danube.” Savor the beauty of both Buda & Pest on a panoramic tour showcasing key highlights.

Enjoy a day of leisure on-board as your ship cruises the Danube Bend, which is lined with scenic towns—some of the oldest settlements in the country—nestled at the foot of lovely wooded hills.

Vienna

FEATURED EXCURSIONS: Choice of exclusive “Morning with the Masters” at Kunsthistorisches Museum OR exclusive “Do as the Locals Do” Vienna walking tour, & exclusive “Royal Anniversary” Mozart & Strauss Concert at a Viennese Palace

You’re in for a real treat with “Morning with the Masters,” an exclusive early opening & art tour of the Kunsthistorisches Museum, showcasing the Habsburg’s imperial treasures as well as magnificent works of art by some of the world’s greatest artists, including Rubens, Rembrandt, Dürer, Titian & Tintoretto. Afterward, enjoy a Bellini cocktail on the stunning cupola terrace. If you prefer to experience the city as locals do, go on a guided walk that highlights Viennese essentials, such as coffee, sausages, wine, music & public transportation. No visit to the “City of Waltzes” is complete without music, so you’ll be treated to an exclusive private “Royal Anniversary” concert, celebrating Maria Theresa’s 300th birthday & legacy in a Viennese palace.

{tab Day 5}

Dürnstein, cruising the Wachau Valley, Melk

FEATURED EXCURSIONS: Dürnstein “Village Day” with choice of exclusive Nikolaihof wine estate visit & tasting OR exclusive saffron workshop with village stroll OR exclusive guided “Go Active” Wachau Valley bicycle ride, & Melk Abbey with library visit

Take a guided tour of the village of Dürnstein, where you have a choice of activities, depending on your tastes. Sample the organic wines at the historic Nikolaihof estate, perhaps the oldest winery in Austria, which produces some of the world’s best Rieslings. Prefer a tasting of a different type? Visit one of the world’s only bio-dynamically certified saffron producers, where you’ll educate your taste buds with flavorful delicacies as you taste saffron-infused chocolate & jams. You’ll then set sail through spectacular UNESCO-protected Wachau Valley to Melk. For a more active adventure, bike along the Danube through the scenic Wachau Valley to Melk. Once in Melk, visit its 900-year-old abbey, a significant centre of learning over the centuries & home to the famous baroque library that inspired the novel The Name of the Rose.

If you wish, head to nearby Linz instead, a former Roman settlement that is now a vibrant centre for the arts. After a guided walking tour that stops for coffee & a taste of Linzer torte, venture into the countryside to visit a local farm & sample another delicious treat— hard cider, a specialty of the region. *Note: Lunch is not offered with the full day excursion to Salzburg.

You then have two “Go Active” choices. For cyclists, join a local guide for a bike ride along the Inn River; for hikers, go on a guided hike with a nature expert along the beautiful Ilz River.
