Your European river cruise adventure begins in romantic and exciting Vienna, the capital of Austria, and ends with three nights in Munich, the Bavarian capital known for its centuries-old buildings and Oktoberfest.

Known as the “City of Music." Vienna inspired the creative genius of Beethoven, Mozart and Strauss. Join your Local Guide for a tour that takes you to the lavish Hofburg Palace complex with its Vienna Boys' Choir and dazzling Lipizzaner horses, the neo-renaissance Vienna Opera, and much more! In your free time, stroll along the pedestrian Kärntnerstrasse or try a piece of Apfelstrudel in an elegant Viennese café. Cruise along the Danube River to Dürnstein, located in the heart of the Wachau Valley, and famous for its baroque Stiftskirche, a church from the early 1700s, and one of the most beautiful due to its luminous blue façade. In Melk, visit Austria's majestic Benedictine Abbey, one of Europe's largest monasteries, and taste some of the region's renowned wines. In Grein, visit the oldest theater in Austria that still gives regular performances.

For a change of pace, travel by motorcoach to Munich, capital of Bavaria, where a Local Guide shows you the famous attractions. Then explore on your own, and be sure to savor a local beer in a traditional stein as you relax alongside the locals at a Biergarten. Step into a fairytale on an excursion to one of the most dream-like castles in all of Europe—Neuschwanstein Castle—said to have inspired the tales of Walt Disney. And the magic of the day continues as you travel to Oberammergau, an idyllic village known for its once-a-decade performance of the Passion Play and typical Bavarian houses painted with scenes from fairytales.
