Danube Symphony – Eastbound 2019
Danube River Cruises
Austria, Germany
Your Danube river cruise adventure begins with two nights in the magnificent city of Munich, capital of Bavaria, Germany, and ends in romantic Vienna, the capital of Austria.

An excursion takes you to the most dream-like castles in all of Europe—Neuschwanstein Castle—said to have inspired the tales of Walt Disney. And the magic of the day continues as you travel to Oberammergau, an idyllic village known for its once-a-decade performance of the Passion Play, and its typical Bavarian houses painted with scenes from fairytales.

While in Munich, a Local Guide will show you all the famous attractions. Then, travel by motorcoach to Passau, the “City of Three Rivers,” and explor its narrow cobblestone streets.
