Day 1 UK to Prague

Night falls over Prague

Fly to Prague and enjoy two nights at the locally rated 5-star Corinthia Hotel Prague (4Q), including dinner tonight.


Day 2 Prague

Prague

The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Prague is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Perhaps discover it on an optional city tour. This afternoon, explore independently – you might like to visit the castle or Jewish quarter, or stop by the fascinating astrological clock situated in the Old Town Square – one of the oldest working astrological clocks in the world, the elaborate striking of the hour tends to draw large crowds.


Day 3 Nuremberg or Roth

Nuremburg

Check out after breakfast and travel by coach to Nuremberg, a distance of around 306 kilometres which should take approximately four hours, depending on traffic conditions. Embark your ship and enjoy a welcome drink and dinner on board.

Danube Nuremberg Bavaria Germany Europe

Day 4 Kelheim to Regensburg

Regensburg

Pause in Kelheim this morning to join an optional excursion to Weltenburg Abbey or stay on board and cruise to Regensberg. This attractive city has been a religious centre since the 7th century and has a large number of medieval churches. This evening, cruise towards Passau.

Danube Regensburg Bavaria Germany Europe

Day 5 Passau

Passau

Passau, the most easterly city in Bavaria, is home to an impressive baroque cathedral containing the largest church organ in the world. You can join an optional short walking tour of the highlights, most of which are close to the Danube. Alternatively, enjoy a full-day optional excursion to Salzburg, famous for being Mozart's birthplace – perhaps sample one of the city's sweets that bear his likeness. Amadeus Royal leaves Passau early evening and, shortly afterwards, crosses the border into Austria. Spend the evening cruising through the province of Upper Austria.

Danube Passau Bavaria Germany Europe

Day 6 Melk to Durnstein

Melk Abbey

Melk is best known for the great baroque Melk Abbey, which has a magnificent church and a famous library with over 70,000 books. Perhaps join an optional tour of the Benedictine Abbey and Wachau region before sailing for Dürnstein, known for its ruined Kuenringer Castle where Richard the Lionheart was imprisoned during the late 12th century. From here you’ll set sail for Vienna later tonight.

Danube Dürnstein Austria Europe

Day 7 Vienna

Vienna

Enjoy an included morning sightseeing tour of elegant Vienna, for 600 years the centre of the Hapsburg Empire. Your tour includes a drive around the Ringstrasse, a wide avenue encircling the old city, taking in famous sights such as the Imperial Hofburg complex built by Emperor Franz Josef, and the world-famous State Opera House. After lunch perhaps join an optional excursion to Schönbrunn Palace. Perhaps join an optional visit to a classical concert in Vienna after dinner on board ship. Cruise to Bratislava tonight.

Danube Vienna Austria Europe

Day 8 Bratislava

Bratislava

Explore Bratislava independently this morning, or join an optional tour. The city is the capital of Slovakia and lies along the River Danube next to the Austrian border. Originally part of Czechoslovakia until 1993, Bratislava’s old town, ‘Staré Mesto’ ,with its historic buildings, provides a stark contrast to the 20th-century buildings, some of which serve as a reminder of its communist past. Early this afternoon you’ll cruise towards the culture-rich Hungarian capital of Budapest.

Danube Bratislava Slovakia Europe

Day 9 Budapest

Buda Castle, Budapest

Budapest is a city made up of two parts: Buda and Pest, built on opposite banks of the Danube. Officially united since 1873, they are still quite different in character. Buda is older and more graceful, with its cobbled streets and medieval architecture, while Pest is the administrative and commercial centre, with wide avenues and impressive 19th-century public buildings. East meets west in this fascinating city, as can be seen in the variety of shops and restaurants. An included city sightseeing tour will reveal the capital's highlights, including the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Buda Castle, Matthias Church and Fisherman's Bastion. After lunch perhaps join an optional excursion, visiting Gödöllo Palace, or Lazar Equestrian Park Horse Farm, before enjoying live entertainment on board your ship this evening.

Danube Budapest Hungary Europe

Day 10 Budapest to UK

Budapest

Disembark after breakfast and travel to the airport for your return flight to the UK.
