Thrilling Cities

Berlin to Budapest - River cruise and land tour

Australians have fallen in love with river cruising but few have journeyed beyond the former ‘Iron Curtain’ along one of Europe’s most important waterways, the Elbe. This less-travelled but graceful river flows through the lush landscapes of Germany and the Czech Republic, with much of the beautiful scenery unaltered by humans over centuries. This breathtaking cruise tour will take you from the imposing edifices of Berlin to the once war-torn city of Dresden, now a thriving city of beauty. Relax on your deluxe river ship, Viking Beyla on this illuminating 5-night cruise to Prague.

Over 1200 years old, Prague is one of Europe’s most spectacular and intact medieval cities and a delight to explore with it old town squares, majestic castles, romantic bridges and soaring church spires. Your land tour across Austria, Slovakia and Hungary embraces other great imperial cities – Vienna with its baroque palaces and alluring coffee houses – and the lively city of Budapest where the famed cream cakes are a must. A day cruise on the Danube will take you through the beautiful scenery of the Wachau Valley to Melk, home to a magnificent, 11th century Benedectine abbey – one of Europe’s largest monasteries.

So much is included in this richly curated holiday – touring, hotels, meals, transfers, flights – even beverages with lunch and dinner on the Elbe River – so unleash the explorer in you and get ready for a holiday as thrilling as the grand cities which grace it.
