The Blue Danube

Board sleek A-ROSA DONNA at the Austrian market town of Engelhartszell. Your ship will depart in the early evening, allowing plenty time to explore. Wake up the following day to the delightful vineyard-carpeted rolling hills of the Wachau Valley. Sit back, relax and make the most of the ship’s on-board facilities as you spend a morning on the river, arriving at Vienna around lunchtime.

Your ship will moor in Vienna until the next evening, giving you ample opportunities to explore the city, on the included city tour and under your own steam. Vienna is, amongst many other things, famous as home of the kaffeehaus, and no doubt during your visit there’ll be time to sit and enjoy some coffee and cake.

Depart Vienna early the following evening, arriving in Linz the next afternoon, staying until the evening. Characterised by its impressive collection of Baroque buildings, Linz is a forward-thinking city, brimming with interesting galleries and public art installations. Join an optional excursion, or explore under your own steam, before departing for Engelhartszell later in the evening, arriving the following morning.

Your Itinerary

  • Travel to Engellhartszell in Austria, where you’ll meet your sleek A-ROSA vessel. Perhaps take a stroll through the town, before your ships departs in the late afternoon. Once boarded, dine when you wish at the gourmet buffet, and perhaps enjoy a nightcap before turning in.

    Overnight, you’ll sail east, toward Vienna.

  • This morning, you’ll wake to the delightful scenery of the Wachau Valley. Sit back, relax and make the most of the ship’s on-board facilities, as you enjoy a delightful morning cruising on the river, passing by picturesque rolling hills, carpeted with vineyards and dotted with medieval villages and fortresses.

    You’ll arrive in Vienna around lunchtime, where you'll spend the next two days.

    Enjoy an included city tour of the Austrian capital, city of Strauss waltzes, ‘coffee and cake’, elegant arcades, the Ringstrasse of imposing buildings, great St Stephan’s Cathedral and the magnificent Hofburg Palace. Perhaps join an optional excursion to imperial summer home, Schönbrunn Palace, whose opulent salons once echoed with the sound of the young Mozart.

    Depart early the following evening and enjoy a night on your ship, meandering past picturesque scenery and villages. 

  • After lunch today, you will dock at Linz, Austria’s third-largest city. The ship will stay here until later in the evening, and you’ll have the choice of several optional excursions, each of which will bring this city to life. Linz is a city of contrasts: it is famous for its impeccable collection of ornate Baroque buildings, but scratch beneath the surface, and you’ll find a modern city at the forefront of Austria’s technology industry, home to a cutting-edge electronic arts venue and a striking modern art museum.

    Depart later in the evening and begin your overnight journey back to Engelhartszell.

  • Tie up this morning in Engelhartszell and begin your homeward journey, bringing a wonderful few days on the Danube to an end.
