Detailed Itinerary

Departure from Passau through Nibelungen Street that takes you through the natural heart of one of the longest valleys of the Danube. Halfway you
will see the legendary natural wonder of the Schlögener Donauschlinge,
where the Danube makes a 180 ° turn. The journey continues through Eferding Becken and then through the short and forested Engtal known as “the Linz Gate” until reaching Linz, a city full of baroque and natural wonders.

The day begins with a visit from Linz. In this city you can find many unexpected aspects of the Habsburg dynasty. The trip continues to one of the most beautiful baroque monasteries in Austria, the monastery of San Florian, if you wish, you can make a visit inside (not included). Then travel to Mauthausen and then continue your journey through the fertile alluvial plain of the Machland region to the golden city of Grein

City tour. This medieval city is one of the most idyllic cities on the Danube. After the visit, continue the trip to the monumental palace of the monastery of Melk Abbey, a baroque jewel of world fame! Continuation of the trip through the Wachau valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, well known for its lush vineyards, fortified churches and legendary castles, until you reach the beautiful medieval city of Krems. Visit of the city

Travel to the medieval city of Krems up to the imposing Göttweig Abbey, from here the great view of the Danube Valley is as impressive as the unusual architectural details of this abbey. Then continue your journey through a landscape of lush forests and a mosaic of fertile fields until you reach the magnificent Klosterneuburg monastery, which was the Habsburger residence. Finally the trip continues to the metropolis of the Danube, Vienna.

In the morning, city tour. Vienna is the cultural meeting point on the traces of the Habsburgs and the baroque fascination of the Danube. No wonder, since Vienna was the imperial residence of the Habsburg House for centuries.
