  1. Arrive at Budapest Ferenc Liszt International Airport. If your cruise 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 its own distinctive character and charm. Get acquainted this dynamic and multi-faceted city with your choice of excursions—whether you see it on four wheels or on your own two feet, there is much to discover in the Hungarian capital.

    You’ll have two enticing ways to experience the city—a panoramic guided tour aboard a motorcoach, or discover the Budapest that locals love on a special walking 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. Come up to the Sun Deck to admire the city’s landmarks—strung along the riverbank like pearls on a necklace—as the ship sails out of Budapest toward Vienna. Today is your day to relax onboard, enjoying the luxuries of your river cruise ship while taking in the spectacular scenery all around you. A variety of activities will be available throughout the day, and you’ll have plenty of time to converse with new friends or simply unwind in your riverview stateroom or suite.

    meal(s):Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
  4. The grand dame of the Danube, Vienna was the heart of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and remains, to this day, the political and cultural center of Austria. Klimt painted here; Beethoven and Mozart composed here; Freud developed his theories here. It’s a treasure trove of splendid architecture, astonishing art collections and inviting cafés—and it’s yours to enjoy.

    To begin your exploration of this delightful and historic city you may choose between two different guided tours: a panoramic city tour or our exclusive “Do as the Locals Do” walking tour. Another highlight today—our exclusive “Morning with the Masters” at the Vienna Art History Museum. Later, you can discover the endless charms of Vienna at your leisure.

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

    meal(s):Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
  5. Named for its white church, Weissenkirchen may very well be the prettiest village in the Wachau Valley. A local expert will show you around and introduce you to some regional delicacies; later, you can stretch your legs with a vineyard hike that includes a wine tasting. Prefer to go for baroque? Visit the 900-year-old Melk Abbey and its extraordinarily opulent library.

    Featured Excursions:
    Choice of Weissenkirchen “Village Day” with exclusive guided “Go Active” vineyard hike and wine tasting or Melk Abbey with library visit

    meal(s):Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
  6. Located at the confluence of three rivers—the Danube, Inn and Ilz—Passau is well known for its ornate baroque cathedral. Long ago, the town was a Roman colony in the province of Noricum, called Batavis after an ancient Germanic tribe. Today, the city is unusually well preserved, having been spared the brunt of Allied bombing during WWII, as you’ll see on your walking tour. If you’d like some active touring, join us for a guided bike ride along the Danube.

    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
  7. Regensburg is a friendly town with quaint cobblestone streets, historic Roman ruins and a UNESCO World Heritage–designated medieval city center. This unspoiled gem was the capital of Bavaria for about 700 years, from the 6th to the 13th centuries. The remnants of Regensburg’s golden age are still on display, but don’t let Regensburg’s illustrious history fool you into thinking the town’s best days are all in the past. Modern Regensburg is a popular center of higher learning, with more than 30,000 students attending its various colleges and universities, and enjoys a lively cultural life. You have a variety of options for exploring this area today, from the ancient to the modern. Choose one excursion for the morning and another for the afternoon.

    Featured Excursions:
    Choice of “2,000 Years in One Hour” Regensburg walking discovery tour or “From Hops Field to Beer Stein” farm visit or BMW factory visit or Exclusive guided “Go Active” bird’s-eye view of Regensburg

    meal(s):Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
  8. Head up to the top deck or find a seat with a good view—you won’t want to miss seeing the ship navigate its way through a marvel of modern engineering, the Main-Danube Canal. Your destination today is the historic city of Nuremberg, which you can explore in two different ways.

    The canal is the fulfillment of a millennia-long dream, permitting ships of all shapes and sizes to travel from the North Sea to the Black Sea. A formidable set of locks, 16 in all, lifts your ship to the crest of the European “continental divide.” Unlike the US and Canada, where the Continental Divide is in high mountains, in Europe the watershed changes at 4,382 feet (1,332 meters), and the countryside is a gentle slope. Regardless of altitude, it’s amazing to watch each lock open and fill with water and to feel the ship rise and move forward.

    Later, arrive in the archetypal medieval German city of Nuremberg. Nuremberg is justifiably famous for its gingerbread and pocket watches, and it was also the site of some key moments in 20th-century history. You’ll choose between two memorable ways of exploring this exceptional city. You can hop aboard a motorcoach for a guided city tour, or you can accompany a local expert to the city’s most important WWII sites, including the enormous Nazi Party Rally Grounds—the actual site of the Nazi party rallies. The choice is yours.

    Featured Excursions:
    Choice of Nuremberg WWII historical tour with Documentation Center or Nuremberg city tour

    meal(s):Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
  9. Your floating time machine takes you to Bamberg today, a well-preserved town that offers a fascinating glimpse of medieval times. Explore the city on foot or opt to head deeper into the Franconian countryside to experience an authentic slice of rural life—including a tractor ride!

    Featured Excursions:
    Choice of Bamberg walking discovery tour or Exclusive Franconian “Village Day”

    meal(s):Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
  10. Your ship will dock in the charming Franconian town of Würzburg, where you can visit either the extraordinary Würzburg Residence—one of the most opulent baroque palaces in Europe—or a fairtytale town and medieval castle.

    Featured Excursions:
    Choice of Würzburg Residence visit
 or Rothenburg medieval walking tour

    Note: Visitors may not take photos or videos or carry backpacks inside the Würzburg Residence.

    meal(s):Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
  11. After today, you may never eat a pretzel again without thinking of the Bavarian town of Wertheim. You’ll meet one of Germany’s best pretzel makers here, as well as the owner of a historic wine estate, before heading off on a guided vineyard hike. If you’re more in the mood for a scenic bike ride, you are welcome to do that instead.

    Featured Excursions:
    Choice of Wertheim walking tour with pretzel-making and wine tasting at a private wine estate or Exclusive guided “Let's Go” bicycle tour from Wertheim to Freudenberg

    meal(s):Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
  12. Delve into exciting Frankfurt today. A major European financial and trade center, vibrant Frankfurt boasts world-class museums, soaring skyscrapers, cozy wine taverns and lovely parks. Choose a brief tour that gives you an overview or a more in-depth walking tour and then explore on your own. There’s a lot to discover, including a great bike path along the Main, if you’d like to get out and about for some exercise.

    Featured Excursions:
    Choice of Exclusive “Do as the Locals Do” Frankfurt walking tour or Heidelberg with castle visit

    meal(s):Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
  13. Like many cities along the Rhine, Rüdesheim has a lengthy history that stretches back to Roman times. These days, the town is best known for its narrow avenue of shops and wine bars called the Drosselgasse and its impressive Niederwald Monument. Later in the day, you’ll experience the most spectacular scenery on the Rhine.

    Featured Excursions:
    Choice of Aerial cable car ride to the Niederwald Monument or Kloster Eberbach medieval monastery tour with Riesling tasting

    Note: The aerial cable car to Niederwald Monument is covered but not heated. Cars are open on the sides, and it is recommended that you dress warmly.

    meal(s):Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
  14. You simply cannot visit Cologne without paying homage to its most notorious site, the Gothic masterpiece that serves as the city’s cathedral. A local expert will show you favorite haunts around the Old Town, introduce you to the famous local brew, and share some of the cathedral’s most intriguing and Magi-cal secrets with you.

    Featured Excursion:
    Cologne walking tour with Cologne Cathedral and Kölsh beer tasting

    Note: The number of visitors allowed in Cologne Cathedral is regulated by a very strict schedule of time slots. Sightseeing will be arranged around the time slots obtained. On Sundays and Catholic holidays, guided tours inside the cathedral will not be possible, but individual visits are still welcomed.

    meal(s):Breakfast, Lunch & Captain's Farewell Reception & Gala Dinner
  15. Enjoy the luxury of a full day in the “Venice of the North,” starting with a private “Morning with the Masters” tour of the Van Gogh Museum. You’ll have the museum’s extraordinary collection all to yourself, with an art historian to show you the highlights. Afterwards, explore the city with a canal ride or on foot with a local expert.

    Featured Excursions:
    Exclusive “Morning with the Masters” at the Van Gogh Museum
    Choice of Amsterdam by canal or Exclusive Do as the Locals Do Amsterdam walking tour

    meal(s):Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
  16. Disembark the ship. If your cruise package includes a group departure transfer or if you have purchased a private departure transfer, you will be transferred to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport for your flight home.

  • U.S. citizens traveling to the Netherlands, 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 Netherlands, 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. 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.
