Itinerary and Meals
Experience your Danube River cruise from Germany to Hungary your way with two nights in Munich before your cruise. Enjoy a full-day guided tour to Neuschwanstein Castle—home of King Ludwig, and plenty of free time to explore Munich before your cruise. Board your Suite Ship® in Deggendorf, Germany, and sail to the lovely city of Linz for a leisurely morning. Continue to Mauthausen for a visit to the Concentration Camp, or to St. Florian Monastery. Explore Ybbs on a guided tour of its romantic old town; sail through the picturesque Wachau Valley to Krems and explore the small village—seemingly untouched by the modern world. Next, sail to Vienna—the “City of Music.” Marvel at the sights with a guided city tour of Vienna’s gilded landmarks—including the Imperial Palace, the world-famous opera house, and stunning St. Stephen’s Cathedral. Visit Bratislava, Slovakia, on your Danube River cruise to explore the quaint streets of Old Town and St. Martin’s Cathedral. You may decide to join your Avalon Adventure Host on a hike to the castle above! Your Danube River cruise concludes in the “Pearl of the Danube”—Budapest.
