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 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 Grand Hotel Wien, a 5-star luxury landmark close to Vienna's State Opera House. There’s much to see and inspire in our Danube Reflections.
