View Full Itinerary

Our Germany, Austria, Poland cruise takes you on a 14-day adventure through central Europe.

Exclusively inclusive river cruising

History takes center stage in Berlin and the cities you'll visit on a weeklong Danube River cruise – Regensburg, Passau, Vienna, Budapest and more.  

Your Danube cruise is preceded by three nights in Berlin, chronicling past political divides with a look back at Iron Curtain curfews, Jewish hardships and wartime woes – while cultural narratives in the museums on Museum Island showcase an evolution of art through the ages. After exploring and boarding your Tauck riverboat in Regensburg, one of Germany’s best-preserved medieval towns, set off on a 7-night cruise. You'll discover picturesque Bavarian towns like cobblestoned Straubing, dating back to 6,000 BC, where you'll take a walking tour or visit a BMW factory, and Passau, a quintessential Bavarian town at the confluence of three rivers. Crossing into Austria, stop at Linz for a walking tour or boat ride in the nearby Lake District; explore Krems and the Wachau Valley by bicycle. In grand Vienna, enjoy two full days of sightseeing choices and attend an evening at a private palace, and conclude your cruise in glorious Budapest, straddling  the Danube. Read Less

Pergamon Museum early-opening visit

An early-opening visit to Berlin's Pergamon Museum

Constructed between 1910 and 1930, Berlin's Pergamon Museum was originally built to display important finds from excavations conducted by Berlin's museums during the late 19th-century, including reconstructions of massive archaeological structures like the Pergamon Altar, the Market Gate of Miletus, the Ishtar Gate and Processional Way from Babylon, and the Mshatta Facade. Artifacts such as these and many more made the Pergamon famous throughout the world, and today – as the centerpiece of Berlin's Museum Island – it is the most visited museum in Germany. You'll enjoy an exclusive view of the Pergamon's holdings on a special early-opening visit.

Bicycling in the city or countryside

Bike rides in Berlin, along the Danube & more

"Royal Danube & Berlin" offers numerous opportunities to hop on a bicycle and add a new dimension to your trip, from a cycling excursion through the city of Berlin to leisurely rides through the countryside along the Danube River with your local guide – a perfect way to experience the centuries-old castles and lush vineyards of the Wachau Valley wine-growing region, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. All of our river cruises include opportunities for cycling along Europe’s rivers, and every Tauck riverboat has bicycles aboard for use by guests ashore.
