Danube Cataracts

Itinerary

Routenkarte Donau Katarakten

This is the departure point for your Danube cruise. Our tip: to ensure that you get off to a relaxed start, travel the day before the cruise begins and spend the night at one of our partner hotels. This will allow you to explore the region around Passau, too. And when your ship sets sail for an exciting Danube cruise, you will have already enjoyed your first few adventures.

During your cruising day, enjoy watching the scenery drift by as you look forward to the next towns and cities. Our tip: the SPA-ROSA is a great place to unwind and pamper yourself during your day on the river.

Do you know how many bridges Budapest has? There are seven in total – and they span the river between the neighbourhoods Buda and Pest. The most well known is probably the Széchenyi Chain Bridge. Take a look at Budapest’s imposing structures for yourself as you cruise down the Danube. And if you go out onto the sun deck of your A-ROSA ship, you’ll also have an unobstructed view of Budapest’s famous parliament building. The perfect way to experience a stunning city.

Kalocsa

Arr 08:00 am Dep 09:00 am

During your Danube cruise, the ship will call at Kalocsa, where we will stop briefly. This town lies to the south of Hungary’s capital, Budapest. Its best-known tourist attraction is the Paprika Museum. Did you know that Kalocsa has the largest pepper-growing area in the world?

Mohács

Arr 01:00 pm Dep 04:00 pm

This idyllic little town on the Danube in southern Hungary is a delightful place to visit. Its pleasant location, snug alleyways and generous squares lend it a relaxing atmosphere. The country’s southernmost Danube ferry plies back and forth here, before the river leaves Hungary and flows into the Black Sea. Your river cruise will take you to one of the Danube’s most beautiful towns, which is also a carnival hotspot.

Belgrade is a well-kept secret among Europe’s many metropolises. The capital of the Republic of Serbia, it is the country’s political, cultural and economic centre. It has a population of around 1.7 million, making it the country’s most populous city too. Belgrade’s location makes it a hub for travel between central and south-eastern Europe. During your Danube cruise, you’ll get to experience Belgrade up-close and enjoy this wonderfully varied city.

Bratislava, home to approximately 450,000 inhabitants and located on the left bank of the Danube, is a young capital city – the youngest in Europe, in fact. Throughout the old town, you’ll see traces of the Austro-Hungarian Empire wherever you go. This leisurely city of baroque and rococo, palaces and palisades, and art and coffee houses is a perfect place to wander around, marvel at impressive sights, relax and unwind.

This is a real highlight of your Danube cruise: Vienna, the capital of Austria with that extra-special something. The locals sound as though they are singing when they speak, and it is customary for certain business owners to address their regular customers with their full title. That’s just the way things are done here. With its wealth of museums, galleries, palaces and castles, plus the state opera and many theatres, the city enjoys a lively cultural scene all year-round. The Viennese are proud of their city – and rightly so!

Wachau

You are about to enjoy a real treat for the senses as you experience the Wachau up close. You will be mesmerised by the famous Danube valley between Melk and Krems. Taking in this fascinating river landscape as you stand on the sun deck of one of the A-ROSA Danube fleet is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. It is no wonder that the Wachau is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This really is an absolute must-see.

Linz

Arr 04:00 pm Dep 11:00 pm

Your Danube cruise is the perfect opportunity to get to know the Austrian city of Linz. It offers an exciting mix of cultural attractions and true works of art. You’ll discover a modern, cosmopolitan city whose diversity, design and creativity really make it stand out. And no visit to Linz would be complete without a trip to a cafe to sample its specialities, such as the famous Linzer Torte.

Nach einer aufregenden und spannenden Donau-Kreuzfahrt legen Sie heute wieder in Engelhartszell (Passau) an. Mit so vielen schönen und wundervollen Eindrücken kehren Sie von der Königin der Flüsse nach Hause zurück. Und wenn Sie uns noch nicht so ganz verlassen wollen, dann erkunden Sie doch noch am letzten Tag die Stadt und Region. Dazu bietet sich auch die Verlängerung Ihrer Kreuzfahrt in einem unserer Partner-Hotels an. Bis bald und Ahoi!
