Regensburg—Having escaped major damage during World War II, this picturesque town is considered one of Europe’s best-preserved medieval cities and the oldest city along the Danube. Enjoy a walking tour of the area—see one of the largest groupings of 13th-14th century church spires, towers and patrician houses north of the Alps. You’ll also encounter the 12th Century Old Stone Bridge, St Peter’s Cathedral and a number of idyllic courtyards.
Passau, Germany—Arrive this morning in Passau, at the confluence of the Inn, Ilz and Danube Rivers. Your guided walk along the town’s narrow streets takes you through Old Town and past traditional patrician houses. See the New Bishop’s Residence and view the impressive baroque St. Stephen’s Cathedral. Optional tour to Salzburg available as an option.

After lunch, disembark in Krems and visit Göttweig, a working Benedictine abbey that owns many of the vineyards along the Danube. The splendid ceiling fresco in the imperial stairwell is one of the largest in the world. Visit the church, a masterpiece of baroque architecture.
Vienna, Austria—Awake in Vienna. Today we tour this Austrian capital. Ride along the Ringstrasse, which replaced the city walls in the mid-19th century. See some of the city’s baroque architecture, including the world-famous Opera House, St. Stephen’s Cathedral and Hofburg Palace.

You many choose to join one of our many optional excursions, including a panoramic tour of Vienna by bike, a visit to the local Farmers’ Market with a local chef, or an all-day excursion to the Slovakian capital of Bratislava, filled with lovingly restored baroque city palaces and leafy squares. Early this evening, enjoy scenic cruising as we start sailing toward Budapest.
