A Danube River Cruise – now we’re talking. These cruises, even short ones, such as the one along the Wachau Valley, are a major tourist and visitor attraction, on this, one of Europe’s and certainly Austria’s major waterways – the Danube River, or simply, “The Danube”. As a waterway, the Danube River has been a major artery of commerce for much of Europe since early times.
Today, with the aid of a canal system in Germany, Danube River Cruises can take you to the North, all the way to Amsterdam or South, all the way to the Black Sea. In between you’ll travel historic lands, discover vineyard-lined valleys and explore grand old castles and beautifully preserved medieval towns in Austria as well as other countries such as Germany, Hungary, Serbia and Romania. The Danube River, often called the Blue Danube for its sparkling color, has been the inspiration for much music and even waltzes and is definitely a source of pride for the Viennese. When you want to enjoy a different kind of Austria, book a cruise on the Danube and watch Austria go by as you relax and take in the historic sights.
