Begin your European vacation your way with a two-night stay in the Pearl of the Danube-Budapest. Join in guided sightseeing, including iconic Heroes Square, with free time to explore and enjoy this beautiful and historic city.

Amazing views on the Danube, Main, and Rhine Rivers await on your European River cruise. Embark in Budapest and sail to Vienna-the City of Music-to see the Imperial Palace, the world-famous opera house, and stunning St. Stephen’s Cathedral. Sail to Dürnstein where you may take a guided hike to the castle prison of Richard the Lionheart. Next, visit the magnificent Benedictine Abbey of Melk.

Cruise to Passau for tour of Germany’s “City of Three Rivers.” Visit the Bavarian town of Regensburg to see medieval sights, and join us for a beer tasting on board. In Roth, take a guided tour of the town, a sightseeing excursion to Nuremberg, or a tour of the notorious Nuremberg Rally Grounds. Join a guided excursion to Munich to see Nymphenburg Palace. In Bamberg, tour its Romanesque cathedral amid the seven hills crowned with churches. Enjoy a beer tasting on board before sailing for the quaint Bavarian town of Volkach. Visit Kitzingen in Bavaria’s largest wine-producing area.

Explore Würzburg along the Romantic Road, then visit a Main River Village. In Mainz, take an excursion to Heidelberg Castle, then cruise to the Rhine Valley village of Rüdesheim. Hear the sounds of oom-pah-pah in a Mechanical Musical Instrument Museum! Take a hike up the vineyard hills with a cable-car ride down, or enjoy a coffee or wine tasting (based on your departure). Cruise through the stunning Rhine Gorge on your way to Koblenz, then to Cologne-with its gothic cathedral and soaring twin steeples. Take a guided city tour or a walking tour of Cologne’s historical Jewish sites.

This Avalon YourWay cruise through Germany concludes in Amsterdam with a guided canal cruise past stately homes of the city’s Golden Age.
