The Blue Danube Discovery With 2 Nights In Prague on Avalon Tranquility II

Product Image
This timeless European river cruise vacation begins in Budapest, Hungary, then sails along the Danube River with exciting stops in Austria and Germany. Your Danube River cruise is followed by two nights in the golden city of Prague! Enjoy an amazing view of the landscapes of Bratislava while embarking from Budapest, and cruise to Vienna, Austria, offering stunning St. Stephen’s Cathedral, the Habsburg Palace, and the Vienna Opera House. In the heart of the Wachau wine region is Dürnstein, a 16th-century town with charming cobblestone streets and the baroque Stiftskirche with its luminous blue façade. In Melk, visit the majestic Benedictine Abbey, one of Europe’s largest monasteries, and enjoy a tasting of some of the Wachau Valley’s famous Austrian wines. You’ll love a guided walk through Passau, with its narrow streets and beautiful Patrician houses. Further up the Danube River, you’ll come to the medieval walls of Regensburg-the only German city not bombed during WWII.

Your last stop is the 1000-year-old city of Nuremberg, where you’ll marvel at the medieval fortifications, extraordinary Gothic churches, and the Imperial Castle. Disembark your Avalon Suite Ship® and travel to beautiful Prague. See the sights with a Local Guide and enjoy exploring on your own. Stroll across Charles Bridge, mix with the locals on Wenceslaus Square, and shop for hand-cut crystal and art books. A perfect ending to a memorable European river cruise vacation!
