This is a tour that has it all: scenery, nature, culture, history and architecture. Experience the natural beauty of the Danube and Wachau valleys with this romantic day trip that takes in charming villages, steep vineyards, ruined castles, magnificent monasteries and during the summer months, a spectacular cruise along the great river itself. This is a tour that has it all: scenery, nature, culture, history and architecture.

Highlights- Explore equally jaw dropping scenery outside of Vienna city centre - Enjoy a lunch or cruise depending on the season - See one of Austria’s most famous baroque buildings Few rivers have inspired artists as much as the Danube, which was immortalised by Strauss’ waltz. As the river winds its way through central and south-eastern Europe, it creates valleys of breathtaking beauty; a landscape of steep banks laden with vineyards overlooked by hillside hamlets and castles.

See the tiny village of Durnstein and the admire the remnants of its once great castle, where Richard the Lionheart was held ransom on his way back to England to fight with Robin Hood (or so some legends say). The views over the Danube and the valley are spellbinding. During the summer season, hop aboard for a 90-minute cruise on the blue Danube and enjoy a new perspective of this picturesque valley.

The Wachau Valley is a Unesco World Heritage Site famed for its lush verdant landscapes and rustic towns but most of all for the quality of its wines, especially the young whites. At Melk, discover the beautiful Benedictine abbey, one of Austria’s most famous baroque buildings. Among its many truly outstanding attractions are the impossibly golden library, the fine frescos and the speckled spiral staircase. In winter, instead of the cruise, we enjoy a lunch.
