Danube Intensive 2024

Itinerary

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.

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.

{f:if(condition: '', then: ')}

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.

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.

{f:if(condition: '', then: ')}

During your Danube Delta cruise, you’ll discover the beautiful port of Rousse. Many people consider this pearl of northern Bulgaria, nestled among the most varied landscapes of the eastern Danube plain, the country’s prettiest city. By the time you have taken a stroll along Ulitsa Aleksandrovska, between Rousse’s two main squares, you’ll probably feel the same. Enjoy your day in Bulgaria!

Cernavoda

Arr 10:00 am Dep 01:00 pm

Cernavoda is located in the Romanian region of Dobruja and has a population of 17,000. It is also the place where the Danube-Black Sea Canal begins, shortening the distance to the Black Sea by over 300km. For this reason, the city also has a lock to regulate the water level between the Danube and the Black Sea.

Constanta

Arr 07:00 pm

Oltenita (Bucharest)

Arr 02:00 pm Dep 03:00 pm

The ship will call at Oltenita, just 60 kilometres from Romania’s capital. Bucharest – often called ‘The Paris of the East’ – awaits you. A city full of contradictions, it manages to bring together many different periods of history at once. Lots of people end up falling in love with Bucharest. Will you?

{f:if(condition: '', then: ')}

Giurgiu (Bucharest)

Arr 08:00 pm Dep 10:00 pm

Bucharest – Romania’s capital – is a city of fascinating contrasts. Beautiful boyar houses compete with concrete walls and glass facades, while straight avenues morph into winding streets. Bucharest is characterised by a constant contrast between poverty and prosperity. Having been under dictatorial rule during its time as a socialist republic, it still seems to be in need of regeneration today. But in spite of this, it’s still a city you can fall in love with.

{f:if(condition: '', then: ')}

Right next to the breathtaking statue of Decebalus carved in stone and the magnificent little church of Mraconia located in the Danube Valley one will find the village of Turnu Severin. This tranquil little town perfectly reflects Romanian life. Take a stroll through the center and discover the historical water tower or the ancient relics from the Roman times, such as the Trajan's Bridge built in 102-105 AD.

{f:if(condition: '', then: ')}

The small town of Donji Milanovac is located in the east of Serbia, near the Iron Gate. A short walk along the bank of the Danube river will take you to a stretch of beach along a park. Nature seems to be still untouched here and the hustle and bustle of the city so far away. Pure relaxation!

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.

{f:if(condition: '', then: ')}

Explore more of the Hungarian capital on your second day in Budapest. The historic Fisherman's Bastion is waiting to be discovered and invites you to enjoy stunning vistas. The second largest city along the Danube is also home to the historic Gellért Baths. Here you can relax in a unique atmosphere.

{f:if(condition: '', then: ')}

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!
