Cruise Description

8 Night Cruise sailing from Vienna to Strasbourg aboard Beethoven.

From Vienna to Strasbourg, embark on a cruise on the Rhine and the Danube, two great rivers with unmatched beauty. You can admire the perfect combination of originality and modernity that dominates Mainz and Frankfurt.

Highlights of this cruise:

Vienna
Vienna is a unique blend of the historic and the modern with a wealth of architecture and artistic and musical heritage. Many of the world’s most important composers, including Beethoven and Mozart, have lived and performed behind Vienna’s Baroque façades. In addition to this Baroque splendor, there are excellent examples of Art Nouveau architecture .

The heart of Vienna is the Innerestadt where some of Vienna’s most popular tourist attractions can be found, along with pedestrianized streets lined with countless shops, cafés, bars and restaurants. The center point is the Graben (literally ‘moat’), which is a wide square lined with shops and pavement cafés under large umbrellas. Following the demolition of the city walls in 1857, the Ringstrasse was laid out and some of Vienna’s most beautiful buildings were built along it, between 1858 and 1865. Among the most important are the Staatsoper (State Opera House), Kunsthistorisches Museum (Museum of Fine Arts), Naturhistorisches Museum (Natural History Museum), Parlament (Parliament), Rathaus (City Hall) and Burgtheater.

Nuremberg
Nuremberg is a city in Bavaria, Germany. It is the largest town in Franconia, a region in the north of Bavaria and is located approximately two hours north of Munich. Nuremberg's Alstadt, or Old Town is surrounded by a mighty city-wall that is 5km long. Cobble-stoned squares and half-timbered houses make it easy to picture Nuremberg’s medieval past. This is also where sights such as Dürerhaus are to be found and in the festive season, thousands of people from all over the world visit the famous Christmas market on the Hauptmarkt. The city of Nuremberg expanded on both banks of the river Pegnitz and because of this, the Old Town is often divided into the Seebald-quarter and the Lorenz-quarter, both of which are named after the two main parish churches. Each quarter has its own distinct character.

Miltenberg
Miltenberg, the pearl of the Main, is a romantic town in the heart of Germany, and a popular Rhine Main river cruise stop. A quaint Bavarian village, Miltenberg began as a Roman fort on the Main. The Gothic grandeur of its Merchant Hall and lovely Medieval and Renaissance houses reflect its affluence and cultural wealth. Enticing outdoor cafés, half-timbered houses, and a 400-year-old fountain are among the memorable sights you’ll see in Market Square. The local area is also celebrated for the German wines produced in the neighbouring vineyards

Strasbourg
Strasbourg is the capital and principal city of the Alsace region in eastern France. It is most widely known for hosting a number of important European institutions. It is also famous for its beautiful historical centre - the Grande Île - which was the first city centre to be classified entirely as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Visitors to Strasbourg will enjoy the architectural delights of the Grande Île district including the Cathedrale Notre Dame and its Astrometric Clock, the Maison Kammerzell, Palais des Rohan and the Musee Alsacien. Also worth visiting is Petite France, the small area between the rivers just south of the Grand IIe. It is Strasbourg's prettiest and most photogenic streets and buildings, with half timbered townhouses leaning out over the narrow cobbled streets.
