Detailed Itinerary: Budapest to Prague

Skip to Prague to Budapest itinerary

Day 1: Budapest (Embarkation Day)

Arrive at Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport, where you will be transferred to the ship.

Day 2: Budapest, cruising the Danube River

Located on opposite sides of the Danube, Buda and Pest each has a distinctive character and allure all its own. Explore this dynamic and multi-faceted city with your choice of excursions—you can see it from a local’s perspective on our exclusive walking tour, or cover more ground with a panoramic tour. Vibrant Budapest, Hungary’s capital, offers an enchanting combination of East and West, old and new. Even its geography is made up of two parts—Buda (the hills) and Pest (the flatlands)—divided by the Danube. Appropriately enough, you have your choice of two different ways to explore it today.

Featured Excursions: Budapest panoramic highlights with Parliament visit or “Do as the Locals Do” Budapest walking tour

Generations Excursion: Hospital in the Rock (This excursion is only available on sailings that belong to the Generations program.)

In the evening, a special Captain’s Welcome Reception and Dinner will be prepared for you.

Day 3: Cruising the Danube River, Vienna

A city tour will show you the architectural highlights of the Austrian capital as well as the legendary opera house in the heart of the city. Or, indulge your passion for art with visits to two distinctively different collections—a “cabinet of curiosities” collected by the Habsburgs and the Belvedere’s extraordinary cache of paintings by Klimt and other renowned artists. The grand dame of the Danube, Vienna was the heart of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and remains, to this day, the political and cultural center of Austria. Klimt painted here; Beethoven and Mozart composed here; Freud developed his theories here. It’s a treasure trove of splendid architecture, astonishing art collections and inviting cafés—and today it is yours to explore.

Featured Excursions: Vienna panoramic highlights with Old Town food and art walk or Vienna panoramic highlights World Museum Vienna: the manic Habsburg collector's treasures

Generations Excursion: Segway ride in Prater Park, Ferris Wheel, and see how Sacher Torte or Schönbrunn is made (This excursion is only available on sailings that belong to the Generations program.)

Day 4: Cruising the Wachau Valley, Spitz

Sit back and enjoy the ever-changing views as your ship cruises through the Wachau Valley, famous for its apricot groves, Rieslings and natural beauty. Later, enjoy a private sparkling wine reception at Artstatten Castle. You’ll want to find a comfortable seat in the lounge or on the Sun Deck today as your ship cruises through the Wachau Valley toward Spitz. Over the eons, the Danube cut a gorge through the foothills of the Bohemian mountains, resulting in a 19-mile (30-kilometer) stretch of riverine scenery so beautiful, UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Landscape. Castle ruins dominate hilltops; baroque church towers appear on the riverbanks, marking historic villages and splendid abbeys; and apricot orchards and vineyards cling to the rocky slopes. Some of Austria’s finest white wines are produced from grapes ripening on the dry-stone terraces above the river, where grapes have been grown for 2,000 years. Your ship will dock in Spitz, midway through this glorious landscape.

Featured Excursions: Private sparkling wine reception at Artstatten Castle with a member of the Habsburg royal family

Generations Excursion: Treasure hunt hike in the vineyards (This excursion is only available on sailings that belong to the Generations program.)

Day 5: Engelhartszell, cruising the Danube River, Passau

Passau is a crossroads in more ways than one—three rivers meet here and three nations nearly do, making for a fascinating cultural mosaic. Get to know the town and its main claim to fame, Europe’s largest pipe organ, or join an invigorating riverside hike or bike ride. Your ship cruises through a scenic highlight of the Danube today, the Schlögener Schlinge—a hairpin loop in the Danube that was once very hazardous for ships and is now a lovely, serene stretch of water—and leaves Austria behind today. Your first German port of call is Passau, where three rivers meet—the Inn, the Ilz and the Danube—and three nations almost meet: Austria, Germany and the Czech Republic. Explore the historic Old Town or choose a more active adventure.

Featured Excursions: Bike the famous Danube Valley from Engelhartszell to Passau

Choice of Passau walking discovery tour or “Let's Go” scenic Bavarian river biking or "Let's Go" hike along the Ilz River

Generations Excursions: Bike the famous Danube Valley from Engelhartszell to Passau; Search for the next top model of Bavarian kids fashion, and dumpling workshop onboard (These excursions are only available on sailings that belong to the Generations program.)

Day 6: Regensburg

You have your choice of adventures in Regensburg, famous for its beautiful, UNESCO protected old city center. “Regensburg is so beautifully situated; this region had to attract a town,” wrote Goethe in his Diary of an Italian Voyage. And attract a town it did, but not due to its beautiful location alone. Ambitious and farseeing locals built a bridge (Steinerne Brücke, or Stone Bridge) over the Danube back in the 12th century, making Regensburg an international trading hub. Because so many of the handsome buildings from that period remain, UNESCO declared the old city center a World Heritage Site in 2006.

Featured Excursions:"Baroque 500" Thurn and Taxis castle visit or BMW factory visit or "Let's Go" Regensburg hiking experience

Generations Excursions: Fascination BMW; Student stroll (These excursions are only available on sailings that belong to the Generations program.)

Day 7: Regensburg, Roth, Nuremberg

he Main-Danube canal is a masterwork of engineering: It allows ships of all shapes and sizes to cruise from the Black Sea all the way to the North Sea, through no fewer than 15 countries. Sixteen locks punctuate the 106-mile (160-kilometer) stretch between Kelheim and Bamberg, linking the Rhine, Main and Danube rivers. Building the canal was no small task, especially considering changes of altitude (each river is different); the locks gently lift and lower the ships an astonishing 1,332 feet (406 meters) over the continental divide. Efforts to connect the rivers began with Charlemagne in AD 793, but the present-day canal was only completed in 1992.

Featured Excursion: Nuremberg panoramic city tour with WII rally grounds visit

Day 8: Nuremberg (Disembarkation Day), transfer to Prague

Disembark the ship early and set your sights on the “city of a hundred spires” as you transfer to Prague via motorcoach.

Day 9: Prague

Is it possible not to be completely enchanted by Prague, with its fabled skyline of spires, fortress-like castle, beautifully preserved architecture and iconic Charles Bridge? A magnet for generations of artists, writers, scientists and composers, Prague is famous for its dynamic energy and elegant ambiance (and the beers here are pretty amazing, too). A thousand years of architecture, from ornate Gothic to fanciful postmodern, have been beautifully preserved in Prague, which has been a magnet for artists, writers, scientists and composers for centuries. It also boasts great beer, a lively art scene and up-and-coming fashion designers, making it a fun as well as a beautiful place to visit.

Featured Excursions: Choice of Prague Old Town and Charles Bridge walking tour or Hradčany Castle visit

Generations Excursion: Prague for kids (This excursion is only available on sailings that belong to the Generations program.)

Day 10: Depart Prague

Transfer to Prague Václav Havel Airport for your flight home.

Day 3: Prague, transfer to Nuremburg (Embarkation Day)

Nuremberg will forever be associated with the post-WWII Nuremberg trials, but the city’s profound historical and cultural significance stretches back many centuries before that. You’ll gain a newfound understanding and appreciation of both aspects of the city today on an in-depth tour with a local expert. Leave Prague this morning and travel via motorcoach to Nuremberg, where your ship awaits. Before you embark on your river voyage, you’ll have time to enjoy lunch on your own and then explore historic Nuremberg and visit sites associated with the rise and fall of the Third Reich. One of Germany’s leading cities for many centuries, Nuremberg’s glowing heritage as a center of German arts, culture and economy was, sadly, also responsible for its disastrous experience in the 1930s and 1940s.

Featured Excursion: Nuremberg panoramic city tour with WII rally grounds visit
