Songs have been sung, poems and plays written. The Danube. Johann Strauß dedicated a famous waltz to it, the Austrian writer Bettina Balàka made it the setting for a successful thriller (“The Whisper of Ice”). Not without reason. The Danube cannot be topped in its natural beauty.

Sometimes it flows very quietly, sometimes it widens to form a lake and sometimes it shoots its water through narrow valleys. It is lined by majestic cities such as Vienna, Budapest and Bratislava – and by lush growth. If offers the most beautiful pictures during every season. One of its most impressive stretches is the Wachau. For over 30 kilometres you sail through a bucolic cultural landscape and UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it’s so attractive you won’t even want to blink. Wine and fruit grow here like in the biblical stories of Adam and Eve.
