This cruise on MS Bellejour is a whirlwind of Viennese waltzing, baroque buildings and historic abbeys. It begins in the cobblestone streets of Prague, before setting sail along the Danube. Quaint waterside towns and wine-growing regions roll past as we cruise along, winding our way through Bavaria, Austria, Slovakia and Hungary. We’ll tour palaces and cathedrals in a trio of capital cities, we’ll sip Wachau Valley wines in Dürnstein and we’ll dance the waltz in Vienna.

MS Bellejour (4T)

Porta Praetoria day 4

Day 4 - Regensburg

The 18th century Weltenburg Abbey is on the agenda today. It’s a spectacular building, an opulent combination of baroque architecture, gold detailing, frescoed ceilings and marble columns. The Benedictine monks here are famous for brewing award-winning dark ale, which they’ve been perfecting over hundreds of years. The afternoon is free for you to explore Regensburg - a UNESCO World Heritage Site, home to architectural treasures such as the Porta Praetoria, a Roman gateway built in AD 179 and the Gothic St Peter’s Cathedral. We set sail along the Danube in the early evening.

MS Bellejour (4T)

Three Rivers City day 5

Day 5 - Passau

We cruise into Passau at breakfast time, giving you the day to get to know the ‘Three Rivers City’, set at the confluence of the Danube, Inn and Ilz. Join an optional guided tour, or head off on your own to discover this Bavarian city’s treasures, which include two Bishop’s Palaces and a Baroque cathedral.

MS Bellejour (4T)

Baroque town hall day 6

Day 6 - Linz

Today we cross into Austria, where we moor in the lovely city of Linz. Again, you can join a walking tour around the city sights, or choose to do your own thing. A previous European Capital of Culture, Linz offers a fascinating mix of old and new. Admire the Baroque town hall and cathedral, before taking a turn around the modern art museum (set inside a striking riverside building). Once you’ve seen the sights, treat yourself to a slice of the delicious local cake, Linzer torte.

MS Bellejour (4T)

Durnstein day 7

Day 7 - Melk - Dürnstein

We dedicate this morning to Melk, and its abbey in particular. Balancing up on a rocky promontory overlooking the river and the Wachau Valley, the abbey takes baroque splendour up a notch - every inch of the interiors seems to be covered in rich decoration and detailing. After a tour and a wander through the gardens, we head back to the ship for an afternoon sailing to our next stop, Dürnstein.

MS Bellejour (4T)

Viennabb day 8

Day 8 - Dürnstein - Vienna

Dürnstein is one of Austria’s prettiest towns, and this morning we enjoy a guided tour to admire its 16th century houses and colourful monastery, and a wine tasting, where we sample a selection of wines produced here. We depart Dürnstein at lunchtime, arriving at our next port of call - Vienna - in the early evening.

MS Bellejour (4T)

Ringstrasse day 9

Day 9 - Vienna

This morning, we have a guided city tour of Vienna. Austria’s capital boasts a glorious collection of Baroque palaces and neo-Gothic buildings. Many of these line the famous ‘Ringstrasse’, the boulevard which encircles the old town. Back on board, we learn the secrets of dancing the perfect waltz with an afternoon class. In the evening, there’s the option to take in a classical concert (Mozart or Strauss) at one of Vienna’s magnificent palaces.

MS Bellejour (4T)

Bratislava day 10

Day 10 - Bratislava

From one capital to another - today, we awake in the Slovakian city of Bratislava. Our optional tour includes a ride on a miniature train, which passes the 18th century Slovak Philharmonic Hall and weaves its way through the cobbled streets of the old town, before delivering you at the gates of the hilltop castle. Afterwards, there’s time for a walking tour of the old town’s pastel-shaded houses, palaces and fountain-studded Main Square.

MS Bellejour (4T)
