Exclusively inclusive river cruising

Moments of history shape the sights you’ll see in the cities and towns along the Danube River, bookended by moments indelibly etched in time in Berlin and Kraków.

Three nights in Berlin chronicle past political divides with a look back at the story of the city through the ages. Onboard your Tauck riverboat for a 7-night cruise, you’ll visit picturesque Bavarian towns like Passau. Crossing into Austria, cruise the Wachau Valley, discover Linz or the unique Czech Republic town of Cesky Krumlov, and enjoy (if you wish) opportunities to explore towns along the river by bicycle. There is no other city like Vienna – and during days of sightseeing you'll enjoy a Tauck Exclusive when you attend an evening in Vienna at a private palace. During a three-night stay at the Sheraton Grand Krakow, overlooking beautiful Wawel Castle, poignant pauses in Kraków, Auschwitz and Kazimierz pay homage to lives lost in tragic times. Read Less

Evening in the Wieliczka Salt Mine

An unforgettable evening in the Wieliczka Salt Mine

Join us for an unforgettable dinner in the subterranean world of the Wieliczka Salt Mine outside Krakow in Poland; in operation continuously from the 13th to the 20th centuries and designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the mine illustrates the development of mining techniques in Europe through the ages, and is one of the city’s treasured sites. You'll descend down a shaft into the salt caverns like the miners do... and arrive at an amazing dinner venue that has to be seen to be believed!

Hotel Adlon Kempinski Berlin

A living legend in the heart of Berlin

Situated in Pariser Platz Square on Unter den Linden Boulevard within sight of Berlin's iconic Brandenburg Gate, Hotel Adlon Kempinski has held court in the heart of Germany's capital since 1907. Named among Northern Europe's top hotels by Condé Nast Traveler, the hotel's amenities include a full-service spa, two stylish bars and several refined, Michelin-starred restaurants.

Our Tauck Directors treated us as family members as they introduced us to the sights throughout our cruise.

It was truly a flawless trip!! Tauck Tour guides were excellent and we loved learning about their background. Local guides were also very good. We were a little concerned about traveling with such a large group but we were impressed with how well the guides managed to make the trip seem very intimate. We loved the ship and the pace of the trip.

Most Memorable Moment:

Visiting Aushwitz and Birkenau as well as the Salt Mine on our final evening. I also enjoyed the onboard guest speakers as well as the local evening entertainers as well as the music at the Palace dinner.


Tauck understands all the ingredients of a happy, carefree holiday. And these are all present on this maiden eastwards voyage from Berlin to Krakow. It was especially interesting to compare how East Berlin and Poland have recovered after WW2 and 40 years of Russian domination. There's a strong historical theme too. Well done Tauck - yet again.

Most Memorable Moment:

Tauck keeps you busy on board with musical entertainment and interesting lectures. My most memorable moment was Edith Kudlak's talk on her memories of life in Vienna during WW2 as the young daughter of a Jewish father and Catholic mother. She endured great hardship and humiliation which she relives in her address with honesty and fortitude.
