Spectacular European heritage mingles with stunning scenery on this remarkable journey, which includes an eight-day river cruise on the iconic River Danube and a three-night stay in the beautiful Czech capital of Prague. Travelling from Passau, with its refined baroque architecture, you’ll visit four countries and three renowned capital cities, savouring cultural highlights and a spectacle of magnificent architecture. Your river journey is complemented by a collection of EmeraldPLUS and EmeraldACTIVE encounters, from a guided bike tour between Melk and Durnstein to a Hungarian folk show in Budapest, while your time in Prague includes a visit to the city’s distinguished castle, and dinner with entertainment in a local restaurant.

After crossing the Austrian border from Germany, stray into the cobbled streets of Linz, Austria’s third largest city. Take in the impressive 14th-century Pestsäule column during an enriching city tour, before using your free time to stroll the city’s string of historic market squares. Slipping through the Wachau Valley wine region, visit the Benedictine Abbey of Melk and the imposing castle of Dürnstein, before touring the elegant Ringstrasse of Vienna. Budapest is a firm highlight for many of our guests, and you’re sure to share their sentiment for the ‘Queen of the Danube’ as you explore her heritage highlights and hike to Buda Hill. From Budapest, Prague beckons, and you’ll travel to the Czech capital on what promises to be a beautiful coach journey. From the Old Town Square to Charles Bridge, Prague has much to offer the curious sightseer, so use your time well to experience all that this beautiful city has to offer.
