Danube short trip on MS Thomas Hardy 5*

Dates:

30 October – 4 November

SUNDAY, 30TH OCTOBER

We meet at the airport in the morning for our flight to Munich which departs at 9.25 am and arrives at 11.45 am. On arrival, we will be transferred to Passau to board our 5* river cruise – MS Thomas Hardy. Upon embarkation, we will be assigned our cabin and have some free time. Late afternoon we depart on our journey through the Danube’s history and modernity, enjoying the breathtaking views it offers. The Bavarian town of Passau is located at the meeting point of three rivers being the Danube, Inn and Liz. Its charm attracts tourists from all over the world. Today the town boasts superb examples of Gothic and Baroque architecture including St Stephen’s Cathedral.

MONDAY, 31ST OCTOBER

Breakfast on board. In the morning we will arrive in Melk – the gateway to Wachau. Approaching this historical town on the Danube, one will surely notice Melk Abbey which is located high above the river – it is visited all year round. It is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, an impressive baroque ensemble that is run by the monks of the Benedictine order since 1089. A mix of faith, culture and science come together throughout the rooms in the monastery. In the afternoon, we set sail to our next destination – Vienna. We arrive late evening – overnight in Vienna.

TUESDAY, 1ST NOVEMBER

Today we explore this Capital city – Vienna, one of the most culturally rich cities in Europe. Sitting on the majestic river, Vienna is considered as the home of classical music and the orchestrations of numerous great names seem to radiate from the street packed with magnificent architecture reflecting the grandeur of the imperial Hapsburgs. Hofburg Palace, Schonbrunn and the City Hall are some of the must-see attractions. Late in the afternoon, we set of for our next stop – Linz.

WEDNESDAY, 2ND NOVEMBER

Breakfast on board. One can appreciate the beautiful views from the cruise whilst sailing to the Linz a. Donau, arriving at our final stop at about midday. The river Danube changes its direction of flow due to a bend in the river, in the Austrian city of Linz. Visitors to this city can enjoy the Donaupark which forms part of the city’s cultural mile. It is located between the Brucknerhausmusic venue and the Kunstmuseum. One can see the whole city from Postlingberg mountain. A 100 year only tram provides a comfortable way to reach the summit – a connection from the city’s main square. Unique shopping experiences at Landstrasse offer a vast selection of products from designer fashion, and jewellery to furniture. Linz also has the largest cathedral – The Mariendom, with the capacity of 20,000 worshipers.

THURSDAY, 3RD NOVEMBER

Back at Passau, and after breakfast, we disembark the river cruise. We then make our way to the city of Munich where we enjoy a sightseeing tour of the city. Afterwards, we proceed to Mirabell Hotel (or similar) for our overnight stay.

 

 

FRIDAY, 4TH NOVEMBER
