Home to over 5000 species of animals, birds and plants and flanked by either lush greenery or striking architecture, it really is a sight to behold.
Later in the trip, you will travel through Germany’s Black Forest – a magical place of majestic evergreens, sprawling meadows and chiselled valleys. You can enjoy forests, castles, post-war tower blocks and, of course, enjoy the great German food. You will also visit Austria, where traditional elegance intertwined with modernity. Be delighted by the beautiful Baroque streets of Vienna and all the amazing grandeur on offer, plus the incredible Austrian cakes. 2019 is a great time to visit this fantastic city. Cruising is a great way to see the world – you don’t have to exhaust yourself with lots of internal flights, and it’s a very relaxing way to travel.

The cruise will also go through Slovakia – the home of natural beauty. Here you’ll find a respect for tradition thrives alongside buzzing city life. In the countryside, wondrous castles grace already charming landscapes of vast mountains and glistening waterfalls. Finally, you will experience Hungary. The whole country is brimming with architectural wonders, with Roman ruins, Baroque churches and Art Nouveau bathhouses punctuating towns and cities. There’s something electric about the atmosphere in Hungary, and the Danube could well be its source.
