About the Tour

The majestic blue Danube—no other river in the world flows through as many countries. By land and by ship, we’ll discover four capital cities in five countries, several UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and delightful scenic, cultural, rural and culinary experiences too numerous to count! Spend days marveling at Europe’s most beautiful landscapes, and evenings docked so you can take in the night life of its magnificent cities—including two nights each in Budapest, Vienna and Prague! We’ll immerse ourselves in the splendor of Budapest (NY Times, Condé Nast Best Places to Go), whose imperial buildings dominate both banks of the Danube. Aboard the deluxe Amadeus SILVER II, we call on the charming rural towns of Szentendre and Esztergom, before visiting the Slovakian capital of Bratislava, with its classic Baroque castles and palaces. We’ll become immersed in the music, culture and imperial legacies of glittering Vienna, then sail through the stunning landscapes of Austria’s Wachau region. The Baroque abbey of Melk awes before a countryside visit outside Linz brings Austrian agriculture to life. Docking in Germany’s historic Passau, we head inland to our crescendo—dazzling Prague,
Europe’s best-preserved capital.

Join CTD President Steve Uelner and expert Discovery Director Sue Froidl for what promises to be a vacation of a lifetime!
