& Danube River Cruise

Combine a spectacular Driving Tour of the Highlights of Austria with a wonderful 7 Day Danube Cruise on board CroisiEurope's river cruise ship, MS Modigliani from Linz.

Austria is one of Europe's most spectacular destinations and boasts an amazing range of sights, attractions and activities to entertain and exhilarate. Whether you prefer to explore the Glittering Lakes or the Dramatic Mountain Terrain, Historic Cities or the Lush Mountain Hillsides synonymous with the Sound of Music. The Grossglockner High Alpine Road is probably the most well known stretch of road in Austria, winding its way from Bruck in Salzburg to Heiligenblut in Carinthia, Hochtor is the highest point at 2505 metres.

The Danube is Europe’s second longest river and takes in a wide array of amazing landscapes and contrasting cultures, helped by flowing through 10 different countries, the most of any river in the world. Visit Budapest’s Castle District and cross the famous Chain Bridge. Explore Göttweig Abbey, one of Austria’s most revered monastic centres, and make dumplings with Wachau Valley apricots. See Europe’s largest pipe organ in Passau, or travel to Salzburg. Celebrate Vienna’s musical heritage at a concert featuring works by Mozart and Strauss. With medieval towns, grand cities and stunning scenery.
