Enchanting Danube River Cruise Itinerary

Arrive at Munich Airport, where you will be transferred to the ship docked in Passau.
Take in the natural beauty of the Danube including the iconic hairpin loop, known as Schlögener Schlinge, a “Natural Wonder of Austria.” Once at your first German port of call, Passau, discover the medieval city with a walking tour along the cobblestone streets to the baroque St. Stephan’s Cathedral. There are two ways to spend the remainder of your day, both are “Go Active” choices. Firstly, you can take a guided bike tour along the Inn River or if you prefer to Hike, join a nature expert for a guided trek along the stunning Ilz River.
Take your pick between Salzburg or Linz. By spending the day in Salzburg, you’ll be treated to the childhood home of Mozart and the iconic scene of “Do-Re-Mi” from The Sound of Music. Linz has just as much on offer, as a destination shaped by its former Roman settlers which now showcases a hub for the arts. Begin the day with a guided walking tour which stops for freshly sourced coffee and some indulgence in a Linzer torte. Once invigorated you’ll venture in to the countryside to a local farm and sample some hard cider, a local delicacy.
A visit to Melk will provide you with the opportunity to lay eyes upon its 900 year old abbey which acted as an imperative learning centre for centuries. You’ll then wind your way through the UNESCO-protected Wachau Valley to Melk. If you’re feeling more active, a bike ride along the Danube through the scenic Wachau Valley to Melk should do the trick. Once in Durnstein, enjoy sampling the organic wines at the historic Nikolaihof estate, perhaps the oldest winery in Austria, which produces some of the world’s best Rieslings. If you’re feeling an urge of hunger, visit a local saffron producer, where you’ll educate your taste buds with saffron-infused chocolate and jams.
Welcome to Austria! This famous European capital city is known for its fabulous palaces, museums and architecture, as well as the people who have called the city home such as Mozart, Beethoven, and Freud. You’re in for a real treat with “Morning with the Masters,” an exclusive early opening and art tour of the Kunsthistorisches Museum. Afterwards, be treated to a Bellini cocktail on the stunning cupola terrace.

If you prefer to experience the city as a local,  take a guided walk that highlights Viennese essentials, such as coffee, sausages, wine, music and public transportation. No visit to this beautiful city is complete without music, so you’ll be treated to an exclusive private “Royal Anniversary” concert, celebrating Maria Theresa’s 300th birthday and legacy in a Viennese palace.

Enjoy a relaxing day on board the Uniworld S.S Maria Theresa as your European river cruise continues up the Danube River. You will also explore Slovakia’s capital city, a thriving commercial hub with a village-like atmosphere and a fascinating mosaic of architectural styles.
Welcome to Hungary! Today there are three excursion choices available as part of your all-inclusive cruise package! Choose from a panoramic tour visiting UNESCO Heritage sites and the two halves of Hungary’s capital Buda and Pest. Alternatively take in the city by bike, or experience the Budapest as a local with a visit to the National Museum, and a ride on the metro. End your day with the Captain’s Farewell Reception and Gala Dinner.
Disembark the ship in Budapest and catch the complimentary transfer to your Budapest hotel, all thanks to My Cruises!
