4 Night Cruise sailing from Engelhartszell roundtrip aboard A-Rosa Donna.
It’s just one day before Christmas, and yet you have time to take a leisurely visit to a picturesque village and afterwards enjoy a long spa treatment? An A-ROSA river cruise lets you forget the stress of Christmas and concentrate on your own personal wish list. Here a light blue abbey tower, there the picturesque landscape of the Wachau valley decked in a white frost. Through to festive Vienna, where you can decide what will best get you in the Christmas spirit: a carriage ride to the palace, white Lipizzan horses or Mass in St Stephen’s Cathedral? And finally, to put the icing on the very successful Danube Christmas cake, a visit to the divine Melk Abbey.
Highlights of this cruise:
This is a real highlight of your Danube cruise: Vienna, the capital of Austria with that extra-special something. The locals sound as though they are singing when they speak, and it is customary for certain business owners to address their regular customers with their full title. That’s just the way things are done here. With its wealth of museums, galleries, palaces and castles, plus the state opera and many theatres, the city enjoys a lively cultural scene all year-round. The Viennese are proud of their city – and rightly so!
A visit to Melk, the ‘Gateway to the Wachau’, brings you to the Danube Valley UNESCO World Heritage Site, where you can marvel at glorious landscapes. And no trip to the Wachau would be complete without a trip to Melk Abbey, a Benedictine monastery. This is a region where towns and landscapes appear to exist in perfect harmony.
