Your European river cruise adventure begins in romantic and exciting Vienna, the capital of Austria, and ends in Passau, Germany, the “City of Three Rivers” because of its unique location where the Inn, Ilz, and Danube rivers converge.

Known as the “City of Music,” Vienna inspired the creative genius of Beethoven, Mozart, and Strauss. Join your Local Guide for a tour of the city that offers the lavish Hofburg Palace complex with its Vienna Boys’ Choir and dazzling Lipizzaner horses, the neo-renaissance Vienna Opera House, and much more! In your free time, stroll along pedestrian Kärntnerstrasse with its many shops, or try a piece of Apfelstrudel in an elegant Viennese café.
