Taking in three countries, two celebrated European capitals and a string of captivating heritage towns brimming with historic and cultural wonders; our Classic Danube & Budapest river cruise and city stay is a wonderfully insightful continental getaway. Join us on-board an award-winning Emerald Waterways Star-Ship and relax as you’re transported from Germany to Austria via dazzling medieval settlements, alpine vistas and elegant Vienna, where your waterborne journey ends. From here, you’re transported by coach to the stunning Hungarian capital of Budapest, where cultural discovery and exploration are guaranteed during an enriching two-night city break – the perfect way to end this momentous voyage through the heart of Europe. Begin in the heritage-rich lands of the Rhine-Main-Danube canal, where medieval cities such as Nuremberg and Regensburg offer much in the way of cultural sightseeing – from the sobering Nazi rally grounds and WWII Documentation Centre to Regensburg Cathedral, The Walhalla and the Palais Thurn und Taxis. From here, you’ll venture south to the graceful streets of Passau, before crossing the Austrian border to visit Linz, Melk Abbey and the captivating Wachau Valley, where you can enjoy an enlivening EmeraldACTIVE riverside cycling experience.

The commanding boulevards of Vienna are next, and here you’ll marvel at the Ringstrasse and its fabled architectural highlights, from Burgtheater to Hofburg Imperial Palace. From Austria to Hungary via a region of spectacular beauty, your two-night Budapest city break begins, and with it the start of your love affair with the great queen of the Danube.
