Soak up the festive flavour of the continent during this 11-day luxury Danube river cruise, including a three-night city break in the exquisite Czech capital of Prague. Browse Austrian and German Christmas markets, picking up handmade souvenirs and tasting your way from stall to stall, while experiencing breath-taking architecture and heritage highlights – from the ceiling fresco of Melk Abbey to the museums and galleries of the riverside town of Szentendre.

Your trip begins in Budapest, the acclaimed queen of the Danube. Make the most of a guided tour of this city, including a piano concert, or choose to visit the nearby town of Szentendre. In Vienna, you’re free to explore the city’s Christmas markets by day, while the evening brings enchantment of its own with an exclusive classical concert of the works of Strauss and Mozart in the elegant halls of Palais Liechtenstein – courtesy of Scenic Enrich.

Before leaving Austria for Germany, take a trip to the magical alpine city of Salzburg, where you’ll enjoy a guided tour of its most famous heritage sites. The medieval cities of Regensburg and Nuremberg give you time to experience the enchantment of a traditional German Christkindlmarkt, before journeying by coach to Prague, one of the truly magical capital cities of Europe.
