On this Europe river cruise vacation, you’ll sail along the Danube, Main, Rhine, and Moselle Rivers. Board your ship in vibrant Budapest, Hungary, then see some of the most intriguing cities of Austria and Germany, before ending your cruise in Luxembourg. Sail out of Budapest, past the impressive Parliament Building on the Danube River, to Austria’s elegant capital of Vienna. There’s a guided walk in the quaint village of Dürnstein, in the heart of the Wachau Valley, and a visit to the magnificent Benedictine Abbey of Melk. You’ll be introduced to the treasures of Passau, Regensburg, and Nuremberg, and take an excursion to Bavaria’s capital, Munich. On the banks of the Main River, you’ll find small towns tucked away behind defensive walls and towered gates. These picturesque Bavarian villages are a photographer’s dream. Visit Würzburg and the impressive Bishop’s Residenz, then sail into the Rhine River and stop in Rüdesheim-a quintessential Rhine Valley town. Later, cruise the wide, peaceful curves of the Moselle River Valley, famous for its picturesque views, and arrive in the wine village of Bernkastel surrounded by Germany’s largest expanse of vineyards. Before you leave, we’ll introduce you to some of the famed Moselle wines. In Trier, Germany, believed to be even older than Rome-having been populated over a thousand years before the Romans arrived-a Local Guide will show you the sights, including the Porta Nigra, the only surviving fortified gate from the original Roman settlement.

Along the enchanting Moselle River, make your way to Remich, Luxembourg to disembark from your Avalon European river cruise, and transfer via high-speed train to Paris to start your Monograms vacation. You’ll enjoy a guided sightseeing in “The City of Lights” with an expert guide driving past the Latin Quarter, Les Invalides, Place de la Concorde, Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, followed by a Seine river cruise and free time to enjoy with the suggestions and support of your Monograms Local Host®.

Your European vacation continues with a trip to London. Enjoy guided sightseeing, including Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, and St. Paul’s Cathedral, as well as free time to really get to know the city.
