Best Cities on the Danube and Rhine Rivers

By Tully Luxury Travel | 10-18-2022 |

Cruise River Amsterdam Austria Budapest Cologne Danube Germany Rhine

With incredible experiences around every bend, your favorite Viking Cruises river voyage is the one you haven’t been on yet. Imagine the romance of Amsterdam and Cologne – picture the beauty of Vienna, the charm of Budapest. See yourself riverside on a café patio, espresso in hand, drinking in the view. This is the quintessential allure of Europe – and the full magic of a Viking river cruise down the venturesome waterways of the Continent, including the legendary Danube and Rhine rivers.

From the Black Forest to the Black Sea, the Danube River passes through more capital cities than any other river in the world, including Vienna and Budapest. Danube cruises wind their way through medieval towns, past the banks of stately vineyards, and through fascinating metropolises and medieval towns. The Rhine begins in the Swiss Alps, flowing north through the German Rhineland, then west into The Netherlands. The castles and fortresses built along the banks of the Rhine stand as a testament to its prominence as a major thoroughfare for the Roman Empire. Both cruises open up a whole new world of Viking splendor, replete with fine dining, incredible wine, engaging history, and memory-making at its finest.

Experience the best Europe has to offer.

Happily, for you, both landmark waterways are part of the Viking Grand European Tour. This iconic journey traces the Rhine, Main, and Danube Rivers across 15 days, throughout some of Europe’s most fascinating countries – The Netherlands, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, and Hungary.

Look out across the expanse of the sweeping Rhine Valley from a 900-year-old castle, taste the delicacies of each storied corner of the region, explore the wine cellars of Austria’s renowned Wachau Valley, master the steps of the Viennese waltz – the list is endless. You can even explore the iconic Christmas markets of Europe if your timing allows. And the Tully Luxury Travel Designers can easily present opportunities for pre- and post-cruise extensions to make your European adventure last even longer.

The largest suites on European rivers today

The Viking longships are specially built to make the most of river cruising, wherever you’re heading. Innovative engineering gets you closer to the action onshore, ready for discovery, and a streamlined Scandinavian design oozes refinement. The large luxury suites all have full-size balconies, with guests wrapped in a world of neutral and natural colors – think tan, auburn, blues, and greens – for a quiet comfort filled with natural light.

Exquisite European flavors and fun fill the ships’ dining rooms, a taste sensation from morning until night, with a wine cellar that rivals the best in the Continent.

A library and lounge bring guests together at varying times throughout the day, and the ship terraces set you right at the water’s edge, a stone’s throw from the banks. The sun deck? Yes, plenty of seating and shade, as you relax and watch the world go by – the windmills 18th-century of Kinderdijk, the ancient ruins of Cologne, the vineyards of Miltenberg and Melk, the promenades of Vienna. We’ll see you on deck!
