From the small, elegant city of Passau in southern Germany you travel past the dramatic Schlögener Loop - a 180° turn in the Danube's course - and then visit the beautiful city of Bratislava, which has a wonderful old town with ancient streets and alleyways, and a vibrant café and bar scene. Onward to the imposing Hungarian capital Budapest, which has a wealth of interest which you will have time to explore.
Your return journey to Passau includes a full day in Vienna, where optional excursions can show you the main sights of this wonderful, historic capital. The cruise is rounded off by a final cycle ride through the special Wachau region, famed for its wines and attractive baroque towns, and the Captain's Farewell Dinner. You leave the boat in Passau on the final morning after a cruise of infinite variety and interest.
