Start your Danube River vacation with three nights in the exquisite city of Prague. You’ll explore the Czech Republic capital with your choice of included excursions. Explore the Golden City with your choice of a guided sightseeing tour or an urban hike extending to the Prokopske Valley Nature Reserve. Enjoy a day of unhurried free time to explore the beauty, history, and welcoming cafes of Prague. En route to your Avalon Suite Ship, you’ll visit the charming, Bohemian town of Ceský Krumlov-then embark on your Active Discovery Danube River cruise. Whether you’re an art lover, a foodie, a history buff, or adventurer, your cruise includes Avalon Choice experiences that are perfect for any preference or pace-from Active to Discovery to Classic.

Your Active Discovery cruise is packed with Avalon Choice inclusions for every pace in every place we go. Browse the art collection of the Habsburg Empire, sample cheese and beer made by Trappist monks, or choose an insider’s tour of Vienna. Attend a wine tasting in Krems or join a hike to Count Dracula’s prison tower, visit Belvedere Palace in Vienna to see Klimt’s renowned “Kiss,” or attend a Medieval Knights Tournament at a Visegrád castle. You may decide to visit the notorious Mauthausen Concentration Camp of WWII, or Greinburg Castle in Grein to meet the count who lives there. With Active Discovery river cruises, the choice is always yours. Stroll the streets of Budapest on a classic sightseeing tour or take a bike ride through town for a different perspective, or learn a few local Hungarian phrases on a walking tour! Your Active Discovery Danube River cruise can be as active or leisurely as you like!
