A Culinary Experience on the Danube Symphony - Cruise Only

Your European river cruise adventure begins in romantic and exciting Vienna, the capital of Austria, and ends with three nights in Munich, the Bavarian capital. Since this is a cruise with a “foodie” theme, there’ll be culinary treats and tastings and an exclusive onboard food and wine-pairing dinner hosted by our Master of Wine.

Known as the “City of Music,” Vienna inspired the creative genius of Beethoven, Mozart, and Strauss. Join your Local Guide for a traditional tour of the city, or participate in a culinary walk, ending with a cooking class! In your free time, stroll along the pedestrian walkway, Kärntnerstrasse, or try a piece of Apfelstrudel in an elegant Viennese café.

Cruise along the Danube River to Dürnstein, in the heart of the Wachau Valley, famous for its baroque Stiftskirche; and later in Melk, visit Austria’s majestic Benedictine Abbey. Savor local cheeses and wine in a tasting hosted by a Master of Wine and prepare your taste buds for a food and wine-pairing dinner, with wines especially chosen for this occasion. Explore Passau, the “City of Three Rivers,” with its narrow cobblestone streets lined with beautiful patrician houses or join a tour focusing on German and Austrian culinary traditions. A befitting end to this marvelous European river cruise vacation!
