    Enjoy classical concerts as you sail from Budapest to Vienna

    This classical music themed river cruise on the Danube will entertain you with on-board talks from Classic FM Concert host John Suchet, plus live performances both on board and ashore. An included excursion in Budapest will reveal some of the capital's highlights, such as the UNESCO-listed Buda Castle and Fisherman's Bastion.

    You’ll also attend a private classical concert. While in Vienna, the capital of classical music, you’ll see famous sights such as the Imperial Hofburg complex and State Opera House. Plus, you’ll attend an evening concert of music by Mozart and the Strauss family in one of the city’s palaces near the Ringstrasse. A visit to Linz provides the opportunity to go to Ansfelden and the birthplace of the composer Anton Bruckner, which is now a museum. This included excursion also features a concert in the elaborate Baroque surroundings of Florian’s Abbey.
