One of our all-time favorites! This Family Danube river cruise will delight your family from dawn to dusk.

World Travel. Family Discovery.

Selected as one of the "10 Best River Cruises" by Fodor's Travel... there is no better way to experience the heart of Europe with your family than on a leisurely Tauck Bridges Danube river tour and cruise aboard one of Tauck's custom-designed riverboats.

Unpack only once as you travel from Budapest, Hungary, to Slovakia, Austria and Germany, enjoying action-packed shore excursions specially designed for families. Play medieval games on a visit to Devin Castle in Slovakia. Soar over Vienna on the Riesenrad (giant ferris wheel) in the Prater, the city's famous amusement park.  Visit Schönbrunn Palace, which Empress Maria Theresa and her daughter Marie Antoinette once called home. Go bicycling along the Danube and discover magical secrets – and "The Sound of Music" locations – at Schloss Hellbrunn in Salzburg. End your family's fun Danube River tour in Passau, Germany, where you'll make your own tasty marzipan creation! Read Less

Tauck Exclusive – Imperial Evening at Palais Pallavicini

Day 4

Our gala Imperial Evening at a private palace in Vienna

Fairy tales come true when you and your family dress up for a royal evening at a private palace in Vienna – the Baroque, 18th-century Palais Pallavicini – just for Tauck Bridges families that transports you to another time. Dinner is served in a ballroom gilded in gold and bathed in the glimmering light of crystal chandeliers. Dancers in traditional dress waltz into the ballroom while musicians play their instruments with regal precision and harmony. And those childhood dreams of meeting a prince or being a princess? This is where they become real.

Making marzipan in Passau

A family marzipan making experience in riverside Passau

Marzipan is a sweet candy confection – traditionally made from sugar or honey and ground almonds, and often formed into pastries or shapes – that can be found around the world. Asia, the Americas, the Middle East and most regions of Europe all have marzipan-making traditions. And you'll discover Germany's love affair with this sweet concoction with a demonstration in Passau that lets you try your hand at making your own tasty tidbit in the shape of a face... very popular in this "city of three rivers."

We saw memorable and historical sites on a our Danube trip but Tauck managed to make it so much fun for our three generations traveling together.

Please consult your physician for pre-departure health advice.
