Beginning in the Black Forest of Germany and opening into the Black Sea, the Danube is the only major European river to flow from west to east. At 2850 kilometres long, the Danube is the second longest river in Europe. The Danube has been a vital means of transportation for over 2,000 years and is one of the most important and historic waterways in Europe. Today, the Danube remains a popular river cruise destination for both first-time and seasoned travellers alike.

Winding through ten beautiful and historic countries (Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Moldova and Ukraine), a Danube river cruise offers views of the Old World unlike anywhere else. As you pass clifftop castles, hillside vineyards, ancient villages and other-worldly forests, the Danube will leave you enchanted.

For those looking to tick items off their bucket list, the Danube flows through four of Europe’s most lively capital cities. With mesmerising views, historic sites and ports of call that are both familiar and off-the-beaten-path, the Danube offers something for every traveller.
