Highlights of the Danube New Year's River Cruise

The old year ends like the new one begins: With a new outlook.

From Engelhartszell (Passau) to Cruising Day, Budapest, Vienna, Dürnstein and Linz to Engelhartszell (Passau).

What do you think about on New Year’s Eve? About the year just gone? Or about what might lie ahead in the new one? In Vienna, the main thing you think is “Wow!”. Because at midnight, the Ferris wheel in the Prater pales in comparison to the fireworks shooting up into the sky. Fountains of fire, torrents of stars, blazes of gold and explosions of colour welcome the new year, and Vienna invites you to dance. But this imperial city is not the only breathtaking city on the Danube. “Budapest is like Paris without the perfume”, is how the people of Budapest describe their city. You can see why. The stunning Baroque buildings, the picturesque narrow streets with their little boutiques and cafés, and in the middle of it all the Danube inviting you for a relaxing drink at the end of the day – all of this recalls the city on the Seine. What’s different is that there’s a little crumbling here and there, and the metro is a little rickety. But who cares? As you continue on in a westward direction, you can reflect on the year gone by and the year to come. As you do so, the Wachau valley – a UNESCO World Heritage Site – glides by, its precious vineyards resting under a thin blanket of snow, preparing for a successful year ahead. A bit like you in the SPA-ROSA.

Budapest

Budapest

On one bank of the Danube is hilly Buda with its Fisherman’s Bastion and Castle Hill; on the other, there’s flat Pest with its House of Parliament. These two beautiful districts couldn’t be more different. Perhaps that’s why it took until 1873 for the two cities on opposite sides of the river to merge and form Budapest.

Winterliches Wien

Vienna

The bells of St. Stephen's Cathedral are ringing in the New Year with a powerful and melodious ring. And at the Prater, fireworks ignite to amaze your eyes. There's no doubt about it: Happy New Year! And while couples sway to the beat of a waltz on the so-called New Year's Eve Trail right across the city centre, there is also cheering, toasting and dancing on board the A-ROSA until the early morning. But this trip is more than just a New Year's Eve gala.

Linz

Linz

Baroque facades, numerous churches and, at the centre, the river. As you can see, it’s possible to describe Linz, Austria’s largest port city, in a single sentence. But that would be doing it an injustice, since there’s a whole lot more to Linz than buildings and water. In recent years, this former industrial hub has morphed into a European cultural stronghold. No matter whether it’s theatre, cinema, art or music, there’s both great demand and great support for culture here. The city also provides magnificent views – particularly in the evening – from the pilgrimage church on the Pöstlingberg hill.

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.

Engelhartszell (Passau)

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.

A-ROSA Wellness Flusskreuzfahrten

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.

Flussreisen mit A-ROSA nach Budapest

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!
