One of the main highlights of any Europe river cruise on the Danube will be a visit to Vienna. This cultured city has so much to offer visitors, so spend your time here wisely. There are many museums and galleries to choose from, along with traditional coffee houses to try. A Mozart recital is an absolute must!

A visit to the regal Hungarian city of Budapest is another highlight that demands careful planning. As the gateway between Western and Eastern Europe for many centuries, Budapest is one of the continent’s most intriguing destinations — and again, there’s a lot to see!
