Sail through Central Europe along the storied Rhine, Main and Danube rivers, legendary waterways with fascinating histories. Unpack once aboard an exclusively chartered first-class river ship and settle in for a 12-night cruise, enjoying an intimate look at four distinct countries, Germany, Austria, Hungary and Slovakia.
Awaken each day to medieval villages and vibrant capitals, enchanting vistas and lauded UNESCO World Heritage sites. Centuries of heritage unfold in Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest, cities steeped in the legacies of great empires. Glide by idyllic landscapes of fairytale villages, castle-crowned hilltops and the beautiful Middle Rhine and Wachau valleys.
Along the way, join local experts for enriching discussions and take part in immersive cultural experiences, including a traditional German Frühschoppen.
