Passau

Passau Embark: 22 December 2024

Located in Germany at the confluence of three rivers, as the river Danube is joined by the Inn from the south and the Ilz from the north, the Bavarian town of Passau has a charm that attracts tourists from far and wide. Passau is an exciting tapestry of old and new – a place that is modern and welcoming with many ancient traditions. The town can trace its roots back to the 2nd century AD when it was established as a colony of the Roman Empire. Pretty little lanes and beautiful squares, Passau has much to discover in the way of art and architecture, great places to eat and drink as well as fantastic places to party, shop, stroll and relax.
Straubing

Straubing In Port: 23 December 2024

The beautiful Danube city of Straubing is the heart of Old Bavaria, they say. So it is not surprising that there are numerous sights to be discovered here. The most famous is certainly the Gothic town tower, Straubing's landmark that can be seen from afar. The watchtower was built in the 14th century and still watches over the city today. It can be found on Ludwigs and Theresienplatz. In the historic city centre of Straubing, numerous shops and cosy restaurants invite you to stroll and linger.
Regensburg, Germany

Regensburg, Germany In Port: 24 December 2024

Having escaped major damage during World War II, the picturesque town of Regensburg is one of Europe’s best-preserved medieval cities, the oldest city along the Danube and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Old Stone Bridge, constructed in the 12th century, is a masterpiece of medieval engineering with its 16 arches. St. Peter’s Cathedral is widely considered Bavaria’s best Gothic architectural work. The Old Town’s Neupfarrplatz square is a cross section of history - it was once a thriving Jewish quarter, a bustling marketplace and the site of Nazi book burnings

Kelheim

Kelheim In Port: 25 December 2024

Kelheim is the administrative town of the district of the same name on the Danube. The small town in Lower Bavaria has about 17 000 inhabitants and offers its citizens a varied programme of leisure, culture, sports and education. The town is situated between Regensburg and Ingolstadt at the mouth of the Main-Danube Canal, where the old canal harbour dating from 1846 can be admired as a monument to earlier architecture. The nearby Altmühltal valley and the Danube breakthrough is very scenic and is where you will find the Benedictine abbey Kloster Weltenburg.
Vilshofen

Vilshofen In Port: 26 December 2024

The historic three-river city on the Danube enchants at first sight. After the former town centre fell victim to a major fire in 1794, it was rebuilt under Elector Karl Theodor according to the plans of the famous master builder Franz Anton Glonner, so that today the old town quarter of Vilshofen is a unique example of the Inn-Salzach style. A special feast for the eyes in the old town is the town tower dating from 1319, which survived the fire and is one of the most striking buildings in the town.
