Delightful Danube & Prague

Operated By:
Tour Pace: Leisurely
Prague, Czech Republic
Tour Style: Boutique River Cruises
10 Days from $3,199 per person

Experience dynamic Budapest and imperial Vienna. Marvel at ravishing scenery as your luxurious ship glides through the Wachau Valley, celebrated as one of the world’s most beautiful landscapes, into Germany and past charming Bavarian villages. 

You’ll have a plethora of options on this luxurious river cruise down the Danube, so you can tailor your journey to match your interests. Explore Budapest with a panoramic tour that shows you the architectural highlights of the “Queen of the Danube,” or get an up-close view of the city’s shopping district and lively green market. Perhaps you’d like to take in the magnificent Habsburg landmarks of Vienna with a city tour or marvel at the Gustav Klimt paintings at the Belvedere. Ramble along the thousand-year-old cobblestone lanes of Passau or wheel your bicycle along the Inn River. Take a look backstage at a historic theater in Prague or visit the Castle Hill district. The choices are yours, and all of them are sure to delight.

  1. Arrive at Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport. If your cruise/tour package includes a group arrival transfer or if you have purchased a private arrival transfer, you will be greeted by a Uniworld representative and transferred to the ship.

    meal(s):Dinner
  2. Located on opposite sides of the Danube, Buda and Pest each has a distinctive character and allure all its own. Explore this dynamic and multi-faceted city with your choice of excursions—you can see it from a local’s perspective on our exclusive walking tour, or cover more ground with a panoramic tour.

    Featured Excursions:
    Choice of Budapest city tour or Exclusive “Do as the Locals Do” Budapest walking tour

    Note: Visits to the interior of Matthias Church may not be possible on some weekends and Catholic holidays.

    meal(s):Breakfast, Lunch & Captain's Welcome Reception & Gala Dinner
  3. A city tour will show you the architectural highlights of the Austrian capital as well as the legendary opera house in the heart of the city. Or, indulge your passion for art with visits to two distinctively different collections—a “cabinet of curiosities” collected by the Habsburgs and the Belvedere’s extraordinary cache of paintings by Klimt and other renowned artists.

    Featured Excursions:
    Choice of Vienna city tour with Vienna State Opera visit or Exclusive “Vienna, City of Arts” tour

    Note: The Vienna State Opera House is occasionally closed to visitors for rehearsals or special events without advance notice. If we cannot visit the opera house, we will visit an alternative venue instead.

    Note: The Kunstkammer Vienna is closed on Mondays between September and May. If the tour lands on a Monday, Albertina Museum will be visited instead.

    meal(s):Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
  4. Sit back and enjoy the ever-changing views as your ship cruises through the Wachau Valley, famous for its apricot groves, Rieslings and natural beauty. Later, take your pick of excursions—a stroll and wine tasting in the centuries-old village of Spitz, or a visit to Melk Abbey and its opulent baroque-style library.

    Featured Excursions:
    Choice of Spitz village stroll with exclusive wine tasting or Melk Abbey with library visit

    meal(s):Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
  5. Your ship cruises through a scenic highlight of the Danube today, the Schlögener Schlinge—a hairpin loop in the Danube that was once very hazardous for ships and is now a lovely, serene stretch of water—and leaves Austria behind today. Your first German port of call is Passau, where three rivers meet—the Inn, the Ilz and the Danube—and three nations almost meet: Austria, Germany and the Czech Republic. Explore the historic Old Town or choose a more active adventure.

    Featured Excursions:
    Choice of Passau walking discovery tour or Passau city tour with Old Town walk or Exclusive guided “Let's Go” Bavarian river bicycle ride

    meal(s):Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
  6. You have two tantalizing excursions to experience today, including a walking tour and brewery visit in Straubing, plus a choice of adventures in Regensburg, famous for its beautiful, UNESCO protected old city center.

    Featured Excursions:
    Straubing walking discovery tour with brewery visit
    Choice of “2,000 Years in One Hour” Regensburg walking discovery tour or Jewish Regensburg walking discovery tour or BMW factory visit

    NOTE: If the tour lands on a day when the BMW factory is closed, we will visit the Audi factory instead. The Audi production line is closed on weekends, so if your visit is scheduled for a weekend, you will see the Audi museum instead.

    meal(s):Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
  7. Come out on deck or find a window seat where you can watch the ship navigate a series of locks as it travels through one of the modern world’s greatest feats of engineering—the Main-Danube canal.

    meal(s):Breakfast, Lunch & Captain's Farewell Reception & Gala Dinner
  8. After cruising the most scenic parts of the Main-Danube Canal, disembark in Nuremberg for a panoramic tour of this medieval city. Alternatively, take a guided tour of significant WWII sites, including the Nuremberg Trials Memorial, which houses Courtroom 600. Later, you’ll transfer to Prague via motorcoach. 

    Note: Courtroom 600 is an active court. Visitors will only be permitted to see the courtroom during trial breaks.

    meal(s):Breakfast
  9. A thousand years of architecture, from ornate Gothic to fanciful postmodern, have been beautifully preserved in Prague, which has been a magnet for artists, writers, scientists and composers for centuries. It also boasts great beer, a lively art scene and up-and-coming fashion designers, making it a fun as well as a beautiful place to visit.

    Featured Excursions:
    Choice of Prague city tour or Exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of Prague’s Estates Theatre and Municipal House

    meal(s):Breakfast
  10. You’ve experienced the best of the Danube River and Prague, sampling myriad culinary delights and exploring fascinating stops along the way. Now your journey comes to a close. If your cruise/tour includes a group departure transfer or if you have purchased a private departure transfer, you will be transferred to Prague Václav Havel Airport for your flight home. Your Uniworld adventure may be over, but we know you’ll enjoy the memories you’ve made for years to come.

Additional dining venues will include a private space to replace the Captain’s Lounge and Library. Two new Royal Suites measuring 375 square feet and an additional Owner’s Suite are being created. We’ll also be adding several connecting rooms which are ideal for families traveling together. Join us next Spring onboard Uniworld’s newest Super Ship — the S.S. Beatrice.

Reviews

Trip not yet reviewed
  • U.S. citizens traveling to the Czech Republic, Germany Austria and Hungary must have a current passport that is valid for six months beyond the conclusion of their trip. You can find information on how to apply for a passport here, and how to renew a passport here. No visa is required for U.S. citizens entering these countries.

  • The currency in the Czech Republic is the Koruna, in Germany and Austria is the Euro, and in Hungary is the Forint. While it’s a good idea to bring some money for when you first arrive on your trip, you’ll usually find a better exchange rate in your destination.  The most convenient way to obtain cash is to use your ATM card at local banks in the Czech Republic, Austria and Hungary. We recommend you also bring a valid credit card for purchases while you are traveling.  It is important that you inform your financial institutions of your travel plans before you leave home so they don’t flag your purchases as potentially fraudulent charges.

  • We suggest packing a variety of lightweight clothing items that can be layered to save space in your suitcase and give you more options for how to dress. It’s important to bring comfortable walking shoes and a waterproof jacket. For more helpful information please refer to our Packing Tips & Packing List.

  • We highly recommend our optional Travel Protection Plan, which allows you to cancel for any reason up to 24 hours before departure. The plan also includes trip interruption, baggage loss or delay, and medical and emergency assistance. Click here for a summary of coverage details, terms and conditions.
