From the rich history of Germany to the unique culture of Hungary, this Danube river cruise takes you to three countries, and the scenic beauty as you cruise past quaint towns, can be experienced right from your state-room or atop the sky deck of your ship. During your cruise, experts will join us to introduce you to the Jewish culture and its remarkable history in Europe. In Nuremberg, Germany, board your river cruise vessel docked on the Main Danube Canal and visit this thousand-year-old city with a Local Guide. Next, reach Re-gensburg, the only German city not bombed during WWII, where you will follow the traces of its Jewish history from the middle ages. Lovers of architecture will enjoy the many listed buildings of historic interest, and Porta Pretoria, gates to an ancient Roman fort built in 179 AD. And here you’ll taste local sausages at one of Ger-many’s oldest restaurants and we’ll introduce you to some of Germany’s famous beers. Next stop is Passau, known for its narrow winding streets lined with Patrician houses, and the magnificent Italian baroque St. Ste-phen’s Cathedral. In Melk, you will visit Austria’s majestic Benedictine Abbey, one of Europe’s largest monas-teries, which sits high on a bluff. Take in the breathtaking views before continuing through the picturesque Wachau Valley to the romantic sounds of Vienna, the “City of Music”. Join a guided city tour and discover the Jewish life in the last century. Your European river cruise vacation ends in Budapest, the capital of Hungary.
