Danube Symphony – Cruise Only Eastbound 2019
Austria, Germany
Your Danube River cruise adventure begins in picturesque Passau, Germany—the “City of Three Rivers.” Here, where the Danube, Inn, and Ilz Rivers converge, a Local Guide will take you through the town’s narrow cobblestone streets lined with beautiful Patrician houses, and you’ll see St. Stephen’s Cathedral, a masterpiece of Italian baroque architecture. Afterward, you can relax with a glass of wine atop the Sky Deck of your ship as you cruise along the Danube River into Austria. A highlight will be a guided visit to the majestic Benedictine Abbey in Melk, one of Europe’s largest monasteries, which sits high on a bluff overlooking the Danube. In Dürnstein, join a guided walk and see the baroqu Stiftskirche, a church from the early 1700s, and one of the most beautiful of its kind because of its luminous blue and white façade.
