Europe's most romantic destinations announced

Unsurprisingly for regular guests of leading river cruise holidays, Budapest, Vienna and Bruges have all grabbed top spots. Featuring under the Inspiration section of the VisitEurope site, the article boasts that ‘Europe is one of the top destinations in the world for romantic getaways.’ 

Banks of the Danube, Budapest

Making the list is the Danube waterfront in Budapest along with the city itself as a whole. VisitEurope cites that ‘a cruise lets you enjoy multiple places in one trip. Take a cruise along the shores of the Danube River from Budapest to Bucharest and take in the contrast of some of Europe’s most magical cities.’

Romantic Danube river cruises are among the most popular of river cruise itineraries as they offer so much to see and do with your partner and magical experiences that you can enjoy together, with a romantic Danube waterfront stroll being one of them.

The Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna

Also making the list was the prestigious Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, Austria. This world-renowned art museum is as popular for its spectacular art works and architecture of the building itself as it is for its lush green grounds upon which couples can enjoy romantic picnics after admiring masterpieces from Rembrandt and Caravaggio.

Bruges, Belgium

Another feature is Bruges. Faultless for romantic sightseeing its Belgian chocolate shops and quaint waterways are picture-perfect. Either explore the city for yourself or have a guided tour as a part of your cruise where your guide will escort you down some of the area’s stunning cobbled streets.
