The Danube Flow River Cruise

Relax. You’re cruising on the Danube, and worries don’t exist on this fine-looking waterway. Germany, Austria or Hungary? You don’t have to choose. You’ll get to explore all three on this 8-day cruise that is part small town, part big city and all parts good times. Regensburg’s Old Town has an open- air café feel and the highest density of pubs and bars in Germany (and that’s no small feat). Austria’s Wachau Valley is a UNESCO World Heritage site if we’ve ever seen one—its Benedictine Abbey houses the most famous library in Northern Europe. Hungary’s lively capital city offers double the fun, with Buda on one side and Pest on the other. And that’s just the beginning.

 7 night Danube river cruise aboard U by Uniworld's The A

Cruise Itinerary:

DAY 1 - REGENSBURG

Included Night Out - Deutschland Discovery (PM)

This one's for the students. Head to Regensburg at sunset and experience the youthful buzz of Old Town, home to some of the best nightlife in all of Deutschland. Kick things off with a host-escorted walk, stopping at the city’s famous churches and aristocratic houses from the 13th and 14th centuries. Then if the weather’s nice, head to the Stone Bridge to eat, drink and mingle under the moonlight. Regensburg comes alive at night, as you will see.

 

DAY 2 - STRAUBING & PASSAU

Included - Bavaria: A Journey Into The Past (AM) 

Join your host on a stroll through the medieval streets of Straubing, a quintessential small town in Bavaria, Germany. Check out the count’s castle and the beautiful Renaissance cemetery behind the Church of St. Peter. Pose for a picture next to the best-preserved Roman armor north of the Alps. Explore the oval-shaped town square and enjoy a hearty Bavarian lunch in one of the surrounding inns. For dessert, try a slice of Agnes Bernauer cake. You can thank us after. Note that some locations and venues may be closed on Sundays.

 

Included Night Out - The Passau Social (PM) 

Passau's old town is a pedestrian-friendly hot spot for food, drink and good times. Step right off the ship and follow your nose to one of the city's great pubs or bars. In the summertime, people gather on the shores of the Inn River, one of three meeting in Passau, to chat, drink and eat, or play volleyball or soccer. Get some exercise, then treat yourself to some hearty pub cuisine. After, head to a Bavarian beer garden for a true Passau experience. Celebrate good times. Come on.

 

DAY 3 - PASSAU & LINZ

Included - Scenic Passau (AM) 

Into beautiful scenery and architecture? Don't pass on Passau. Situated at the intersection of the Danube, Inn and llz rivers, the city boasts some of the best views on the German-Austrian border. Take a hike to one of Passau's best viewpoints: Veste Oberhaus. The views are storybook, allowing you to see the entire city of Passau as well as the surrounding countryside. Get lost in the city’s maze of old town alleys. Get your architecture fix at St. Stephen’s Cathedral, with its distinctive domed towers. Fun fact: The cathedral is also home to one of the largest organs in the world, with 17,974 pipes.

 

Included - Bike The Danube (PM) 

Feeling energized after your morning hike? Grab a bike and cruise down the famous Danube bike path, which is particularly scenic from Passau to Vienna. Your expert guides will lead you on a flat 20-mile route. Reunite with the ship in Engelhartszell, where you can quench your thirst with beer made by Trappist monks.

 

Included Night Out - The Second Life Of Linz (PM) 

Spend an evening exploring Austria’s third-largest city, Linz, a leading center for modern media arts. Arrive in port and walk to the striking Ars Electronica Center, which focuses on society, technology and life in the future. No matter which way you turn, there’s something insightful and futuristic to explore in Linz.

 

DAY 4 - MELK, WACHAU VALLEY & DÜRNSTEIN

Included - A River Runs Through It (AM) 

Take a breathtaking (literally) bike tour through the UNESCO Wachau Valley. You’ll travel 20 scenic miles along the Danube, passing the wine villages of Willendorf, St. Michaels, Weissenkirchen and Joching, and meet the ship in Dürnstein with some amazing new memories and photographs.

 

Included - Castle Ruins Rendezvous (PM)  

Dürnstein, Austria, is a beautiful town situated along the Danube River. Explore its restaurants, shops and scenic views to discover why it’s nicknamed the “Pearl of the Wachau.” Take a stroll through the town’s narrow cobblestone streets to historical buildings like the Blue Monastery Church and Abbey. Last but definitely not least, hike up to the famous Dürnstein Castle ruins where Richard the Lionheart was once a prisoner, and have a dream photo op. With expansive views of the Danube River and Wachau Valley, this is a can’t-miss experience.

 

DAY 5 - VIENNA

Included - Good Morning Vienna (AM)  

Wake up, grab a cup of joe and follow your U Host onshore for a morning stroll through Vienna. Head to the Historic Center of Vienna, an area rich in architecture, including Baroque castles, gardens and late -19th-century Ringstrasse lined with grand buildings, monuments and parks. The best way to wake up in the morning is with a tour of beautiful Vienna.

 

Included Night Out - Vienna After Dark (PM)  

Looking for a night out on the town? Perfect. Your U Host will show you some of the coolest night time spots in Vienna! First, you’ll head to Stephansplatz, a glorious architectural setting and popular meeting up spot for many locals. Then you’ll work your way through the alleyways of the so-called Bermuda Triangle where most night owls stay forever. There are cocktails bars, beer pubs, nightclubs and lots of live music in this famous hotspot. And if you haven’t stopped off for a drink anywhere yet, the tour will conclude around the Danube Canal, where many waterside “beach” bars form a lively social scene every evening. This will be a night to remember!

 

DAY 6 - BRATISLAVA & BUDAPEST

Included - Bohemian Dreamin' (AM) 

Take a stroll through Bratislava, Slovakia’s charming capital. It’s located on the Danube and surrounded by the Carpathian Mountains. Known for its lively bars and Art Deco cafes, it’s a great place for Czech beer and Bohemian eats. Soak in the relaxed urban lifestyle of 18th-century Old Town and treat yourself to a little something from a Bratislava pastry shop. It’s vacation, after all.

 

DAY 7 - BUDAPEST

Included - Budapest: The Heart Of Hungary (AM) 

With more than 40 theaters and over 100 museums and galleries, Budapest has a lot to offer. Take to the city by foot and explore all of the region's "must sees."

 

Included Night Out - Ruin Pub Rendezvous (PM)  

Budapest has a reputation for being an epic party city, but we can’t be certain. If you could, please follow your host through the city’s scene of abandoned buildings turned raves and report back to us. We hear cheap drinks, techno beats and street art at every stop are to be expected.

 

DAY 8 - BUDAPEST

Disembark and head off to your next adventure.
