ATTENTION: Due to the current restriction because of the spread of the nowel coronavirus, some employees are currently not on duty or work decentralized, so that we have to process incoming mails and requests according to urgency and not in order. Therefore we have adjusted our office hours. Corporate customers and tour operators can find current information in our news area.

What to expect

The Danube is the second-longest river of Europe and flows through ten countries. A wide stream bed, changing landscapes and cultural diversity are only a few reasons why the Danube is so popular for river cruises.

Having its origin in the Black Forest, the Danube strings together beautiful Germany cities before continuing to Austria, e.g. Ingolstadt, Regensburg, Straubing and Passau. The cities of Nuremberg and Munich are just a stone’s throw away from the river. The Main-Danube Canal connects the two rivers, running from Bamberg via Nuremberg to Kelheim.

As we are specialised in land excursions for river cruises, we look forward to organise tailor-made programmes for your cruise along the Danube! We arrange city tours and trips, as well as bus transfers to and guided tours around many different sights of the area.

My tip for your Danube river cruise: “Why not combine your cruise with a short break at the Bavarian capital – Munich? Make sure to see the old town and its Gothic City Hall, St. Peter Church, Royal Residence, Opera House and Hofbräuhaus – often described as the most famous pub in the world.”
