Austria: River Cruise
The Danube is one of the most famous and most beautiful rivers in Europe, and it flows right through the heart of the Austrian countryside. Around every turn you will discover a medieval castle, or church, or Austrian village, or even a vineyard. The Wauchau Valley is a particularly popular part of the Danube; a narrow gorge, 24 miles long and surrounded by mountains and woodlands. If you want more than just a day cruise, you can opt for some overnight stops and an itinerary that can take you all the way from Vienna, through Austria, Slovakia, Hungary and back again.
