May 01, Tuesday Vienna, Austria Embark pm

Layered and elegant, with elements of cozy and grand, musical and visual might be the best way to characterize Vienna—

Or one of many ways, as this imperial city surely can inspire endless lines of poetic descriptions. Once the capital of the

Austro-Hungarian Empire and forever known for its distinguished roster of composers who either were born or lived and

worked here—including Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert, both Strausses, Liszt and Brahms—Vienna finds itself at

the very center of European culture, even as it sits near the border of the Czech republic, Slovakia and Hungary. Turn to

a blank page to memorialize your own impressions of this grand city, remarking on its manicured gardens, ornate

architecture—especially that of the famed Ringstrasse—intimate bistro pubs called beisln and a certain flourish that can

only be called Vienna.

May 04, Friday Krems, Austria 8 AM 12 PM

Situated at the confluence of the Danube and Krems rivers 43 miles west of Vienna, Krems marks the beginning of the

Wachau Valley (if traveling upstream) and showcases a true crisscross of old and new. The Steiner Tor, or Stoney Gate,

combines architectural styles, with its original 15th-century construction later refashioned into a fanciful Baroque style.

Putting the old and new literally side by side is a preserved length of the old city walls, which is snugged up against a

newer chrome-and-glass section – similar in height and purpose, and entirely different in appearance and feel. Putting the

new within the old are the designer shops housed in the regal 18th-century buildings of the Altstadt. In the upper Old

Town, you’ll find one of the oldest parish churches in Lower Austria. Old traditions also stand the test of time: In cozy

heurigen, or wine bars, wine is consumed with a relaxed conviviality. Storybook beautiful in its steep-roofed architecture

and Danube setting, Krems is perhaps neither old nor new, but timeless.

May 04, Friday Danube Scenic Cruising

Scenic River Cruising At Its Best.

Aboard your all-inclusive, all-suite Crystal river yacht, luxury knows no bounds. While cruising from one storied European

port to the next, your day’s adventure might include a morning in the Fitness Center using state-of-the-art TechnoGym

equipment, or perhaps a yoga class followed by a soothing massage. For lunch, dine on Michelin Star-level cuisine while

watching the world drift slowly by. Enjoy a mid-afternoon respite on the top deck under the sun, or in cooler climes escape

to your well-appointed suite and avail yourself of your attentive butler. Catch up on your reading. Watch a movie. Attend

a lecture. As always aboard the World’s Most Awarded Luxury Cruise Line™, the choices are yours.

May 04, Friday Melk, Austria 4 PM 7 PM

Best known for its fortified baroque Benedictine monastery, Melk Abbey, the town of Melk boasts an assortment of smaller

gems. Among them, the city’s riverside location, serene and regal with a ribbon of wooded groves giving way to the lovely

village. Cobbled lanes and a petite size make for a pleasant stroll with a chance to discover its 16th-century Town Hall, or

Rathaus, in the center of town, and Haus am Stein, or House at the Rock. Built in the 15th century, the vine-covered abode

is Melk’s oldest building.

May 05, Saturday Cruising the Danube River

May 05, Saturday Passau, Germany 1 PM

At the confluence of the Danube, Inn and Ilz rivers, Passau is also situated at a meeting of cultures. The town began as a

Roman settlement, enjoying the rising tide of influence as the largest bishopric in the Holy Roman Empire and enduringly

vibrant as a hub for various trade and manufacturing pursuits, including salt, swords and ideas. Experience Passau’s charm

as you the wander the cobbled streets of Old Town, gaze upon arched bridges and Italianate manses and encounter

magnificent St. Stephen’s Cathedral and the New Bishop’s Residence.

May 07, Monday Linz, Austria 8 AM

Named the European Capital of Culture in 2009 and added to the roster of UNESCO Creative Cities as a City of Media

Arts in 2014, Linz embraces the present and future, even as it remains reverential to its past. There is much to be proud of

: Here on the gentle curve of the Danube, Linz rose to power as a political and economic hub for the Holy Roman Empire.

Trade and influence extended in all four directions, from Hungary and Germany to the east and west and Poland and Italy

to the north and south. Later, Linz sparkled as a city of the Habsburgs, the last home to German Emperor, Friedrich III.

The city’s layout reflects its history, with an ancient medieval center encircled by neoclassical, neo-baroque and

neo-Renaissance neighborhoods, a kind of tree-rings of age and architectural styles. Highpoints of old traditions and

impressive landmarks include the Linzer torte, dating to 1653 and thought to be the oldest cake in the world, and

St. Martin’s church, the oldest church in Austria.

May 09, Wednesday Bratislava, Slovakia 1 PM 10 PM

Slovakia’s capital city may be the country’s buzzing political and economic center, but it is also a historic gem that stirs

the imagination. A maze of narrow, cobblestone streets wind around colorful 18th-century buildings, and shade-covered

sidewalk cafes beckon weary—or simply hungry—travelers to linger over a meal and enjoy people watching. Museums,

cathedrals and palaces are edifying locales to spend some time, while photography buffs will want to snap images of the

medieval castle that looms over the city with a majestic grace. For those looking for more contemporary sights, Bratislava

boasts a pulsating modern art scene, as well as some outstanding examples of Communist-era architecture.

May 10, Thursday Esztergom, Hungary 7 AM 10 AM

Once the capital of Hungary, Esztergom still displays a regal appearance, situated beautifully on the Danube and capped

by the Esztergom Basilica, the largest church in Hungary. Adding to its former-capital credentials is Esztergom’s

stretch-way-back history: It is one of the oldest towns in Hungary. The Middle Ages version of the city lies underneath

the present Esztergom; excavations have revealed evidence that this spot of Hungarian earth has been inhabited since

the end of the Ice Age—in other words, 20,000 years ago. Fast forward to today and you’ll discover a town that stays in

touch with its past, with most roads leading to the grand Basilica. Turn your head away from the church’s imposing

edifice to glimpse the city’s other attractions, including fountain-adored squares, fine gardens and, of course, the waters

and bridges of the Danube.

May 10, Thursday Budapest, Hungary 2 PM

Cast your eye over the Budapest skyline, and you’ll see all the makings of a world-class city and striking photograph:

domes and spires, bridges and lampposts, splendid architecture in the foreground, rolling hills in the back, and the Danube

River placidly curving through it, providing a reflective surface for sunsets and city lights. Look closer, and the treasures

of Budapest—Hungary’s capital and the largest metropolis—really come to light. Castle Hill is at the top of most

visitors’ lists, a UNESCO-listed district hosting Buda Castle, Trinity Square, Matthias Church and Fishermen’s Bastion.

The area is also residential, with 18th-century houses, cobblestone streets and few cars, thanks to a strict vehicular

ordinance, giving you a real sense of what the city must have been like ages ago. Budapest is full of history, originally a

Roman settlement, formed as a unified city when Buda and Pest joined in 1873, overtaken by various invading forces over

the centuries, and today an interesting goulash of local culture and foreign influences. Take a seat in a Turkish-era bath or

savor rich Esterházy torte in a genteel coffee house to experience the many sides of a city that charms from both sides of

the Danube.
