Day 2: Budapest

This morning, your sightseeing tour takes you to historic Buda Castle from where you can enjoy a splendid view of the twin cities of Buda and Pest spread over both banks of the River.

Your afternoon is free to explore on your own.(B)

Day 3: Bratislava, Slovakia - Vienna, Austria

Wake up this morning in Bratislava, capital of Slovakia. You have your choice of two tours today. The first option is a walking tour of the city’s major sights, including the Old Town Hall, the stunning Mirbach Palace and Gothic St. Martin’s Cathedral. In the alternative, choose a “Communist Tour” that includes architectural landmarks such as the Radio Building, Liberty Square and the Soviet War Memorial. Later, you will have some free time before the ship cruises to Vienna, the music capital of the world. After dinner, enjoy an optional Mozart and Strauss concert in one of the great formal concert houses of Imperial Vienna, such as the Hofburg Palace or Palais Auersperg. (B,L,D)

Savor the Baroque elegance of romantic Vienna during your guided sightseeing tour, which will include the impressive Vienna Opera House, the majestic Ringstrasse and the historic St. Stephen’s Cathedral. The remainder of the day is at your leisure. After dinner, experience a traditional “Viennese Wine and Music” evening in a wine village near Vienna. Enjoy the year’s newest vintage, surrounded by music and hospitality. (B,L,D)

Day 5: Dürsntein - Melk

This morning arrive in Dürnstein, where you will take a walking tour along the town’s medieval cobblestone streets, passing by 16th century town houses and wine taverns. Marvel at the magnificent blue façade of the baroque Stiftskirche. Your tour will also include a wine tasting at a local vintner, where you will enjoy several different wines, presented along with bread, knowledgeable hosts, and plenty of laughter.

This afternoon you have the choice of three different excursions. The first option is a visit to the scenic “Salzkammergut” region, the Austrian Lake District, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Explore the historic town of Gmunden, on the shore of Lake Traunsee. The second option is to join an excursion to the Czech town of Cesky Krumlov. This is a wonderfully preserved medieval town, nestled in the hills just over the Austrian-Czech border.

As an alternative, explore the city on a guided bike tour (capacity controlled).

This morning, disembark your ship in Vilshofen, and depart for Munich. Stop in Regensburg, one of Germany’s best preserved medieval cities, where you will enjoy a walking tour. Afterwards, enjoy free time to explore Regensburg’s old town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, before continuing your motor coach transfer to Munich, the capital of Bavaria. Located north of the Bavarian Alps on the river Isar, Munich is Germany’s third-largest city. With a history that dates back to the middle Ages, Munich is an important industrial, educational and cultural center. It is also famous for its breweries, beer gardens and attractions such as Oktoberfest. (B)

Day 9: Munich

This morning, enjoy a panoramic tour of Munich followed by a walking tour of the Old Town.

(B)

Day 10: Munich

Your excursion begins with a scenic drive through the Bavarian Alps to the famous Neuschwanstein Castle, inspiration for the “Sleeping Beauty” Castle. The palace was built in the 19th century by “Mad” King Ludwig II of Bavaria, as an homage to the grandiose operas of composer Richard Wagner. After a tour of the castle, visit Fussen, Bavaria’s highest town, known for St. Mang’s Abbey, where you will have free time for lunch before returning to Munich. (B)
