The Experiences – Discover Europe’s fascinating culture, sublime scenery and striking architecture as you cruise the Danube, Main and Rhine rivers

Your exclusive Luxury Escapes River Cruise takes you on an incredible 15-day journey from Cologne in the heart of the Rhine valley to Vienna and finally Budapest on the banks of the Danube (also operates in reverse).

Perched on the Rhine, experience the medieval ambience and ancient atmosphere of unique Mainz—boasting quaint market squares, traditional wooden houses and architecture that dates back to the 15th century. A guided walking tour will allow you to explore all this, before entering one of the oldest museums of printing in the world, The Gutenberg Museum.

Onto the majestic Main River, the medieval town of Wertheim will reveal itself as you explore its alluring roads brimming with ancient housing, medieval monasteries and the spectacular town castle. Be dazzled by Wurzburg—Franconia’s wine capital—before entering the Main Danube Canal and reaching the striking town of Bamberg. Arguably the most beautiful historic town the region, the almost-perfectly-preserved architecture, European heritage, Roman influence and Medieval streak takes Bamberg’s beauty to a tier of its own.

Uncover the troubled history of Nuremberg on a morning tour that will have you visiting World War II sites—including the Third Reich Party Rally Grounds—900-year old Medieval monuments and the captivating Imperial Castle.

With an afternoon to explore Vienna at your leisure, classical music lovers will be in utter heaven. Vienna offers many music houses, which are accessible by foot from the city centre including Wiener Konzerthaus, Wiener Musikverein, Wiener Staatsoper, Vereinigte Bühnen Wien and Jazzland.

The Slovak capital of Bratislava will welcome you with open arms on a morning guided walking tour of the city. Wander the pedestrian-only streets of the striking Old Town—which dates back to the 18th century and overflows with lively bars and street-side cafes—and view the commanding presence of the Bratislava Castle that watches over the Old Town.

Explore what is perhaps the most striking city of all, Budapest. Enjoy wandering through the bustling cobbled streets which are home to many quaint shops and cafes and visit the top of Fisherman’s Bastion for magnificent panoramic views of the city.
