Majestic river, royal cities, unique countryside

Duna, Dunaj, Dunav, Dunarea – over 2,888 km, the river we know as the “beautiful blue Danube” meanders and crosses through ten countries from its source in the Black Forest to the natural wonder of the Danube Delta. The coronation cities of former rulers with their magnificent buildings line up on its banks like pearls on a beautiful chain.

But it’s not just about the metropolises; the diverse countryside has always inspired artists from all over Europe to create stunning works. Through the lovely Wachau valley, the wild and romantic Carpathian Mountains and all the way to the gentle natural paradise of the Danube Delta, the “Queen of Europe’s rivers” makes her way to the Black Sea.

Here, the river provides a habitat for a unique variety of flora and fauna. First narrow and dainty, then broad and foaming, it unites countries, people and cultures as a border river, giving Vienna, Budapest, Bratislava and Belgrade an incomparable cityscape and providing travellers with a cruise that is full of cultural and scenic highlights. The Danube is quite justifiably the most popular destination among river cruise fans.
