There are no beaten paths when your road is the Blue Danube. Begin in Prague, an enchanting medieval city of castles and spires, stunning palaces and cathedrals; the awe and wonder will carry you over land to Regensburg on the Danube, where your leisurely riverboat journey unfolds like a dream: dramatic river landscapes, fairy-tale castles, Roman ruins, and romantic villages...the epicurean delights of Wachau Valley, wine tastings, a private lunch at a Cesky Krumlov castle... a mountaintop abbey drenched in lavish Baroque art... a mad count’s romantic vision of a medieval castle, and the quirky, eclectic charms of Bratislava. Our river odyssey winds its way to an idyll in the Viennese Woods and a sumptuous evening of dining and music at a Vienna palace. And a fitting finale? Two nights in the heart of city at The Ritz-Carlton, Vienna (a luxury landmark composed of four 19th century palaces, steeped in marble, frescoed ceilings, wood paneling and murals... not to mention the spa, the indoor pool and the rooftop terrace with stunning views of the city). There’s much to see and inspire in our Danube Reflections.
