Cruise Description

12 Night cruise sailing roundtrip from Engelhartszell onboard A-Rosa-Silva.

With a stroke of the bow, a violin begins to weep. The young, the artistic and business people sit beneath the golden ceiling of the Book Café in Budapest. This city of many influences is a place where people, culture and architecture come together to create a unique atmosphere. Visitors who dock in Belgrade will be able to smell peach trees and wood smoke as they make their way to the imposing fortress. They’ll also be able to try pljeskavica, a kind of burger served with cream cheese and flatbread. There’s more to Vienna than the Sissi Museum, the cathedral and Prater; there’s also an endless array of charming and innovative shops, cafés and museums. Plus, the Carpathian Mountains aren’t far away. First, though, you must pass through the “Iron Gates”. Looking on disapprovingly is a 40-m-high portrait carved into the cliffs of a king who ruled here until 106 A.D. The deep-blue water flows through the vertical cliffs of this mighty canyon, taking many a passenger’s breath away. The Wachau valley seems rather gentle by comparison. This area’s mild climate means that sun-kissed grapes can be grown to produce exquisite wines. This UNESCO World Heritage Site also boasts idyllic ruined castles and picturesque villages. A region for true connoisseurs.

Highlights of this cruise:

Vienna
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.

Engelhartszell
This is the departure point for your Danube Cruise. Our tip: to ensure that you get off to a relaxed start, travel the day before the cruise begins and spend the night. This allows you to explore the region around Passau, too. And when your ship sets sail for an exciting Danube cruise, you will have already enjoyed your first few adventures.

Budapest
Budapest once consisted of three parts: Buda, Obuda and Pest. Buda meaning “oven” was the historical upper city with the castle. The part Obuda meaning “old oven” was the part between the hill and the Danube. And Pest on the left-hand side was where most of the population lived. In 1872, these three parts were combined to form a real centre.

Belgrade
Belgrade’s troubled history is reflected in a rich and varied architectural legacy. In the past, the city has changed hands many times and has now been the capital of Serbia since 1992. At the heart of the city, the square of the Republic leads on to the pedestrian shopping area and also the so-called Skadarlija artists’ quarter, both of which are definitely worth a visit.

Bratislava
Bratislava has been the capital of Slovakia since its independence in 1993. Bratislava was also the capital of Hungary from 1536 to 1784. A visit should begin at the castle, which offers spectacular panoramic views over the "Beauty on the Danube". The Old City presents a fascinating network of attractive squares and winding lanes.
