Journey the iconic passage of the Danube from Bavaria to Hungary, enjoying rare cultural experiences that reveal the best of renowned destinations including Passau, Vienna, Regensburg and Budapest. This route is one of the most popular in Europe, helping you experience two iconic capital cities, a string of heritage-laden towns, and some of the most prized landscapes of the continent – from Wachau Valley to the Hungarian Gates.

We begin in Nuremberg, a medieval city renowned for its WWII heritage sites, which are yours to discover as part of a Scenic Freechoice guided tour. Travelling south through the Bavarian hills, explore Regensburg’s Old Town or visit Weltenburg Abbey’s ancient brewery, before crossing the Austrian border at Passau. You have a choice of excursions in Linz, including a visit to Český Krumlov in the Czech Republic or a day trip to fairy-tale Salzburg. A Sundowners event in the Wachau Valley is the perfect way to enjoy the view, while Vienna brings an exclusive Scenic Enrich concert within the palatial walls of Palais Liechtenstein.  Your journey ends in the elegant Hungarian capital of Budapest, where a guided tour with a local expert introduces the city’s highlights, from Buda Castle and the Hungarian State Parliament Building, to the Shoes on the Danube Bank and the magnificent State Opera House.
