A-Rosa Donna, Danube Christmas Markets ex Engelhartszell Return
- Saturday, 19th December 2020
- A-Rosa Donna
4 Night Cruise sailing from Engelhartszell roundtrip aboard A-Rosa Donna.
A trilogy of cult films about “Sissi”, Empress Elisabeth of Austria, is always shown on German TV at Christmas. But this year, you can go one better: by visiting the Sisi Museum yourself. The Danube will take you there in festive style – with castles and abbeys lining the way as you pass through the most beautiful landscape imaginable. Vienna was made to fill you with Christmas cheer. Christmas lights shine out from the high windows of magnificent historical buildings. Meanwhile Baroque churches and opulent squares with sparkling Christmas markets and ice-skating rinks look like something out of a fairy tale. The Christkindl market in Linz also entices you in with the aroma of sweet treats, festive music and a sightseeing train that whisks you off to the peaceful, wintry Pöstlingberg Schlössl restaurant.
Highlights of this cruise:
Vienna, the capital of Austria, is known as the city on the blue Danube, but today the main river is actually detached from the inner city and only the Danube Channel runs through the city. Vienna is still one of Europe’s most seductive cities, however, and is worth a visit not just for its incomparable cultural treasures, the pomp and elegance of former glory, but also for its traditional coffee houses.
Linz is the capital of Upper Austria and has a unique character all of its own. You can still find traces of the Roman era here, while the old town centre boasts elegant Renaissance courtyards and Baroque churches. A local specialty is the Linzer Torte, a spicy cake with a jam filling.
