By bike and boat along the Danube. What a special experience, because your floating hotel is always with you. Enjoy the impressive natural spectacle of the Schlögener Danube loop and the fascinating landscape of the Wachau with its wine terraces, castles and palaces in the saddle or from the comfort of the deck. Enjoy the untouched floodplain forests of the Donauauen National Park and the picturesque Hungarian Danube Bend. Discover the many sights to the right and left of the Danube. The broad river runs like a silver thread through Budapest and divides the city into 2 parts- mountainous Buda and the flat Pest. In Esztergom, the imposing dome of the basilica greets you from afar. Bratislava, formerly Pressburg, the Slovak capital at the foot of the Little Carpathians, invites you to take a long stroll with its charming old town. Would you like a little flirtation with Vienna, the city of the waltz? A fireworks display of sights, small, dreamy coffee houses and cozy wine taverns await you.


Passau in the southeast of Germany is located at the Austrian border. Situated at the confluence of the rivers Danube, Inn and Ilz, Passau is worldwide known as "The Three Rivers City".
