About Danube Tours

Second only to the longest European river, the Volga, the Danube River rises in the Black Forest Mountains of western Germany as it winds its way nearly 2,850km before opening up to the Black Sea. A Danube River cruise can take travellers through 10 different countries: Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania, Ukraine and Moldova.

The Danube has been a vital means of transportation for more than 2,000 years, and is the only major river to flow from west to east. The Main-Danube canal stretches from Bamberg to Regensburg, Germany, joining the Main and Danube rivers. Its 16 locks have made it possible to travel by river cruise ship from the North Sea to the Black Sea.

The typical duration of a Danube river cruise ranges from 8 - 15 days, but you can choose shorter or longer trips to suit your individual needs. “A Taste of the Danube,” for example takes you on a river cruise from Vienna to Budapest and lasts just 4 days, while the “Grand Danube Cruise” from Bucharest to Prague sails for 18 days.

What to expect from your Danube River cruise

Discover the picturesque Danube with its charming small towns and exciting cities. Begin with a guided sightseeing tour and enjoy overnight city stays. Relax in local cafes and visit the many historic museums in each city. You’ll find time to do some shopping and take a stroll along the historic streets.

When it’s time to board your ship, you’ll begin to explore the natural beauty and serene atmosphere of river cruising. As you gently glide along the Danube in a luxurious river cruise ship, your journey often concludes with the option to partake in some more guided sightseeing or take time to explore on your own.
