Christmas Ribon

Passau to Passau
4 night Danube Christmas Market Cruise


From Engelhartszell (Passau) to Vienna and Linz to Engelhartszell (Passau). A trilogy of cult films about “Sissi”, Empress Elisabeth of Austria, is always shown on German TV at Christmas. But this year, you can go one better: by visiting the Sisi Museum yourself. The Danube will take you there in festive style – with castles and abbeys lining the way as you pass through the most beautiful landscape imaginable. Vienna was made to fill you with Christmas cheer. Christmas lights shine out from the high windows of magnificent historical buildings. Meanwhile Baroque churches and opulent squares with sparkling Christmas markets and iceskating rinks look like something out of a fairy tale. The Christkindl market in Linz also entices you in with the aroma of sweet treats, festive music and a sightseeing train that whisks you off to the peaceful, wintry Pöstlingberg Schlössl restaurant.

Settle into your cabin and explore the range of amenities before setting sail at around 5pm. Enjoy your first dinner on board as the ship makes her way towards the Austrian border.

DAY 2: Cruising through Wachau Valley to Vienna

This morning the ship cruises through the scenic Wachau region to the west of Vienna.

Vienna, the capital of Austria, is known as the city on the blue Danube, but today the main river is actually detached from the inner city and only the Danube Channel runs through the city. Vienna is still one of Europe's most seductive cities, however, and is worth a visit not just for its incomparable cultural treasures, the pomp and elegance of former glory, but also for its traditional coffee houses.

Arrive in Vienna this afternoon where you can explore Vienna’s prettiest squares which are transformed into magical Christmas markets. The aroma of Christmas bakery items and hot punch creates a wonderful Christmas atmosphere. You also join a number of optional excursions including a sightseeing tour of the city to see the famous Ringstrasse, the State Opera, Hofburg Palace and the Belvedere Palace

DAY 3: Bratislava

Directly at the border triangle with Austria and Hungary, on the southwestern border of Slovakia, lies the capital Bratislava, the largest city in the country. The traces of the Austrian-Hungarian dual monarchy are omnipresent in the old town. A leisurely life between baroque and rococo, palaces and palisades, art and coffee houses. Enjoy your day individually in christmassy Bratislava.

DAY 4: Linz

Arrive in the city of Linz situated at the heart of the Danube. Linz boasts a sizable Old Town rich in culture with numerous museums and festivals. Here you may stroll around town, stopping to buy Christmas presents and inhale the scent of Bratwürstel and mulled wine. The Linz Christmas Markets are a true festive highlight and are held on the city's baroque main square and also in the Volksgarten.
