CRUISE THE DANUBE RIVER FROM VIENNA
Ready to treat yourself and that someone special? How about Christmastime on the Danube
River? What better time than the holidays to enjoy a cruise? And what’s better than seeing
some great old world cities decked out for the holidays. Combining the two, that’s what!
Experience awe inspiring cathedrals and world renowned museums at every port, and you won’t
want to miss old world Christmas markets with thousands of lights and decorated trees
everywhere. This is truly a one of a kind cruise.
I have just returned from a wonderful & fun Avalon Waterways Christmastime River Cruise. I
can honestly say this is one of Avalon’s best. Tranquility is well appointed and hosts a gracious
and helpful staff. I enjoyed good food, enticingly presented. The wait staff was cheerful and
Cabins are a nice size and have a stocked refrigerator. Opt up for large sliding windows that are
especially nice for watching as you relax in comfort.
A magical evening at a Mozart & Strauss Concert at the
Kursalon Wien in Vienna was a personal best.
A visit to the Silent Night Memorial Chapel in Oberndorf where Silent
Night was first sung, and then on to Arnsdorf to hear Silent Night
performed in its original version, will live forever in fond memories
and great pics!
An educational trip to Duerstein. In December 1192 Richard
Lion-Heart was imprisoned in the castle. How old Europe!
Last but definitely not least, a tour of St Peter’s Cathedral in
Regensburg. One of the most beautiful cathedrals in the world, it
stands majestic and unbelievable in its splendor.
These are only a few of the many delights of the cruise.
Add the special, uniquely old world flavor of the Christmas
Markets, so very special in their own right, and the result is a very
special cruise at a very special time of year.
