8 Day Danube Discovery - Budapest to Nuremberg

Start your discovery of the Danube in the fascinating Hungarian capital, Budapest, where a range of Scenic Freechoice activities will suit all preferences. Embark on a guided tour with piano concert or hike up Buda Hill for exquisite photo opportunities. Visit the traditional thermal baths and spa or marvel at the underground caverns of Buda Castle’s Hospital in the Rock, a former WWII emergency hospital and now the Nuclear Bunker Museum. 

Vienna is your next stop, where an exclusive Scenic Enrich classical concert in the halls of the Palais Liechtenstein, once it’s closed to the public, exemplifies stunning Baroque architecture and pays homage to former resident composers. Imperial grandeur is ever-present on a visit to Schönbrunn Palace and during a tour of the famous Ringstrasse. Immerse yourself in Viennese coffee culture, explore by e-bike or venture to the Slovakian capital, Bratislava. 

The magnificence of Melk’s Benedictine Abbey, is something not to be missed, as is a bike ride along the river to Dürnstein, before a Scenic Enrich Sound of Music and Salzburg Show, celebrating the classic film in the Austrian hills where it was set. Cross into Germany for the latter stages of your itinerary and walk the streets of Regensburg with an expert, sail the Danube Gorge to Weltenburg Abbey to sample beer, or cycle to Walhalla Monument, which honours some of the country’s most distinguished people.

Your journey concludes in Nuremberg, where the Bavarian chocolate box charm that Bavaria is recognised for, combines with some thought-provoking visits to WWII sites and an on board beer-tasting.
