Picture ever-changing views of fairy tale castles, inviting vineyards and pretty riverside towns as you glide smoothly along Europe’s most stunning waterway

No other river in the world flows through as many countries as the Danube. On its journey through 10 different countries and landscapes, Europe’s second longest river passes through cities rich in history and beauty, between its source in the Black Forest and its estuary into the Black Sea.

Sailing on board one of Amadeus River Cruises’ stunning river vessels, all of which combine the exclusivity of a boutique hotel with the luxury and flexibility of a private yacht, you can experience a fascinating journey along the most beautiful stretches of the Danube.

Cruise straight to the heart of the Habsburg monarchy, visiting the Bavarian ‘Three-Rivers City’ of Passau; Hungary’s capital, Budapest, and the world-famous Vienna – home to the sumptuous Schönbrunn Palace.

Drink-in diverse landscapes such as the ‘Schlögener Schlinge’, the picturesque, myth-enshrouded Wachau region, and the sharp bend of the Danube-knee at Visegrad, as you sip your favourite tipple on the Sun Deck.

Admire imposing architectural buildings along the river banks, such as Melk Abbey and the Esztergom Basilica, as you relax in the Panoramic Bar or indulge in some alone-time in your French Balcony cabin.

As a traditional family company with over 40 years of river cruising experience, Amadeus River Cruises recognise the importance of having space where you can feel at home and relax completely.

On board every one of the elegant ships of the Amadeus fleet, hospitality is more than just a tradition, it’s a passion, a passion you will experience in every detail, from beautifully-appointed surroundings and gourmet dining selections to the enthusiastic professionalism of those taking care of you.

With a staff and crew trained to the highest standards of service and the most modern fleet on Europe’s waterways, the ambience on board is relaxed yet impeccably gracious; designed to make you feel right at home in the heart of Europe.

With Amadeus River Cruises you can experience a new sensation every day. Learn about foreign cultures and make new friendships, or simply sit back and admire the fabulous panorama as you float past. Amongst all of this rich variety one thing remains the same: the warm welcome you will receive from the Amadeus family the moment you step on board.
