8 days Passau-Budapest-Passau 2019
Duna, Dunaj, Dunav, Dunarea – the 2,888 km-long river we call the "beautiful blue Danube" crosses or borders on ten countries, from its sources in the Black Forest to the natural wonder of the Danube delta. Along its banks, coronation cities of former rulers with their sumptuous architecture are strung together like pearls on a beautiful necklace. Not only these cultural centres but also the diverse landscapes of the Danube have traditionally inspired artists from all over Europe to create fabulous works of art.
The "Queen of European rivers" makes its way to the Black Sea via the delightful Wachau, the romantically wild Carpathian mountains and the gentle paradise of the Danube delta. Here, at the end of its journey, the Danube provides a habitat for a uniquely diverse range of flora and fauna. Initially slender and graceful, later broad and frothing, it is a border river connecting different countries, peoples and cultures; it gives Vienna, Budapest, Bratislava and Belgrade an incomparable cityscape and promises travellers a cruise full of cultural and natural highlights. The Danube is traditionally the most popular destination for river trip enthusiasts, and rightly so.
