Cruise Overview:

Start this timeless European river cruise vacation with two nights in vibrant Budapest, Hungary. Sail along the Danube River with exciting stops and panoramic views in Austria and Germany, and end with two nights in Prague, the stunning capital of the Czech Republic. At this time of year, the towns and cities are festively lit and decorated, each in its own particular style and tradition. Christmas markets abound, and the strains of carols and aroma of gingerbread fill the air. In lively Budapest, enjoy an introduction to the city by a local expert who shows you the must-see sights, and take this first chance to explore a Christmas market.

Depart Budapest, and sail up the Danube River to Vienna, Austria. Here, Christmas markets are scattered throughout the city, with the largest located in front of the city hall. Join a traditional city sightseeing or a guided culinary walk through the Christmas market to taste some of the local traditional specialties. Glide through the winter wonderland of the Wachau Valley, and visit Austria’s majestic Benedictine Abbey in Melk. You’ll love a guided walk through Passau, with its narrow streets and beautiful patrician houses, and the Christkindlmarkt set against the stunning backdrop of St. Stephen’s Cathedral. Sail further up the Danube River through panoramic views, and you’ll come to the medieval walls of Regensburg, the only German city not bombed during WWII. Your last stop along the Danube River is 1000-year-old Nuremberg, famous for one of the oldest Christmas markets in Germany. After guided city sightseeing, be sure to explore the many stalls and try some spicy gingerbread and Glühwein! Disembark your Avalon Suite Ship® and travel to beautiful Prague, Czech Republic. See the sights with a Local Guide, explore on your own to browse for one-of-a-kind gifts at the Christmas market, and admire the beautifully
decorated tree in Old Town! The perfect ending to a winter cruise on the Danube!
