Avalon Waterways

Danube Symphony Cruise — Munich to Vienna

10 Days: Friday, October 12–Sunday, October 21, 2018

Save $750 per person when you reserve by April 16, 2018

Your Danube adventure begins with three nights in magnificent Munich --stroll along the pedestrian walkways and savor a local beer as you relax at a Biergarten; visit fairy-tale-esque Neuschwanstein Castle and Oberammergau, an idyllic village known for its once-a-decade performance of the Passion Play. Travel by motorcoach to Passau, the "City of Three Rivers," and explore its narrow cobblestone streets lined with beautiful Patrician houses. Afterward, you can relax with a glass of wine atop the Sky Deck of your ship as you cruise along the Danube River into Austria. A highlight will be a guided visit to the majestic Benedictine Abbey in Melk, one of Europe's largest monasteries, which sits high on a bluff overlooking the Danube. In Dürnstein, a guided walk will show you the baroque Stiftskirche, a church from the early 1700s, and one of the most beautiful, with its luminous blue and white façade. To round out this unforgettable European river cruise, visit Vienna, the "City of Music" --known to have inspired the creative genius of Mozart, Beethoven, and Strauss. After guided sightseeing, stroll along the pedestrian walkway of Kärntnerstrasse, or try a piece of Apfelstrudel in an elegant Viennese café as a perfect ending to your river cruise adventure.

When you reserve your Avalon Waterways Cruise with The Travel Club, any current Avalon promotions will be applicable to your reservation.
