Itinerary

Danube Cataracts
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.

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!

Durchatmen, erholen und Ruhe genießen – dafür lieben die Budapester ihre Margareteninsel. Nach einer kurzen Busfahrt steigen Sie um in die kleine Bimmelbahn. Ganz entspannt entdecken Sie damit auf einer 30-minütigen Rundfahrt die Schönheiten dieser Insel, zum Beispiel die mehrere Jahrhunderte alten Bäume, die blumige Parkanlagen, das an die Vereinigung von Buda, Pest und Obuda erinnernde Zentenariumdenkmal oder den musikalisch untermalten Margitsziget-Springbrunnen. Ebenfalls wunderschön: die Ruinen des ehemaligen Dominikanerklosters und die restaurierte Szent-Mihaly-Kapelle aus dem 12. Jh. Nach dieser Rundfahrt lassen Sie bei einem Spaziergang den japanischen Garten auf sich wirken und genießen einen Kaffee auf der Terrasse des Grand Hotels. Dann bringt Sie der Bus zur St.-Stephans-Basilika. Mit ihrer 96 Meter hohen Kuppel ist sie die größte Kirche der Stadt. Und erst die Orgel! Die 6.000 Pfeifen erzeugen Gänsehaut-Klänge.

Thanks to the mild climate and the southern slope of the Mecsek mountain range, almonds, figs and sweet grapes grow perfectly in the region around Pécs, earning it the moniker in Hungary, The Mediterranean City. Pécs is also known for its fine porcelain, which is produced in the traditional Zsolnay factory. In 2010, Pécs was one of the European Capitals of Culture and awaits you with interesting sights and an elegant city centre. With this many assets, it is not surprising that even the great religions settled here and made their mark on the city’s architecture: the former Turkish mosque is the largest in Central Europe, the magnificent cathedral is home to a stunning panelled ceiling and the synagogue is one of the most beautiful in Hungary.

Topola once played a key role in the history of Serbia, since it was here that the First Serbian Uprising took place between 1804 and 1813. Saint George’s Church stands on Oplenac Hill near Topola. This white marble edifice was founded by King Peter I of Serbia and is the resting place of a great many members of the Serbian – and later Yugoslavian – royal family.

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.

The capital of the autonomous province of Vojvodina makes quite an impression, with the mighty Petrovaradin fortress occupying the right bank of the Danube and the picturesque old town of Novi Sad standing atop the left bank. With around 220,000 inhabitants, it is Serbia’s second-largest city. Tourists are captivated by the old town – which looks as though it could almost be Italian. Will it cast a spell on you too? During this Danube cruise, you’ll have the chance to find out.

First of all, you’ll travel into Novi Sad’s old town by bus. On a walk through its handsome streets, you’ll find that you can’t help but think of the opulent Habsburg era.
