River Cruise Itinerary
Day 1 Nuremberg
Your cruise begins here, and you’ll get to toast the occasion at this evening’s welcome reception. (Dinner)
 
Day 2 Nuremberg
Freechoice: Choose to visit moving WWII sites or try something a little lighter – the 'Tastes of Nuremberg', a tour of culinary delights that will help you discover a passion for local bratwurst, beer and gingerbread. We won’t tell anyone if you loosen your belt a little. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
 
Day 3 Regensburg
At the confluence of three rivers, Regensburg offers a rich tapestry of experiences, from its medieval Old Town to the Bavarian Forest on its border.
 
Freechoice: Join the group for an enjoyable walk around Regensburg or hop on a local ferry and sail the Danube Gorge to view historic Weltenburg Abbey, where you can sample beer from one of the oldest monastic breweries in the world. Alternatively, you could take a leisurely cycle on your own to the Walhalla monument with your Tailormade GPS device. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
 
Day 4 Passau > Linz

Day 5 Melk > Dürnstein
Freechoice: Be guided through Melk’s magnificent 18th century Benedictine Abbey. Alternatively, if you’re feeling more active, embark on an enjoyable guided bike ride along the river from Melk to one of the most enchanting villages in the region, Dürnstein – at your own pace, of course.
 
Sundowners
As the day ends, you’ll get to take in the fine views of the breathtakingly beautiful Wachau Valley. You’ll be in very fine company, and can expect a wonderful ending to a magnificent day. Of course, we can't take all the credit for this one. It’s nature who provides the view, we’re just bringing the drinks. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
 
Day 6 Vienna
Today you have options galore.
 
Freechoice: Take a guided tour of Bratislava or Schönbrunn Palace, and witness the sheer opulence of the Habsburg Empire.

Or why not taste your way around the local market on our Shop with
a Chef tour with your on board chef.
 
Enrich
Breathe in the opulence and luxury of Palais Liechtenstein while enjoying a glass of fine Austrian Sekt. Then be enthralled by an enchanting private Viennese evening concert featuring the timeless music of Strauss and Mozart. Even in elegant Vienna, Palais Liechtenstein is one of the grandest of all venues. (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
