Why cruise one European river when you can experience the three most majestic — the Rhine, Main, and Danube — on one single, seamless, deluxe voyage? Our Majestic Rivers of Europe Wine Cruise brings you through the most scenic stretches of Germany, Austria, and Hungary, presenting you with all the iconic attractions (including nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites) and cultural experiences that make this part of the Old World so memorable. Absorb the sophistication of Vienna, the city that gave birth to the modern world’s greatest movements of art, architecture, music, psychology, and more. See the great Gothic cathedral towns of Cologne, Würzburg, and Bamberg. Admire the legendary castles along the Rhine, and wander around fairy-tale villages of half-timbered houses.

As if those experiences weren’t intoxicating enough, you’ll also savor the region’s renowned wines during onboard tastings, visits to local cellars and vineyards, and at wine parings with your included nightly dinners. But that is not the only way we’ve enriched your itinerary . . . Your journey includes an impressive 32 included features and Cultural Connections that let you try out local traditions for yourself. Visit Vienna’s Kursalon for classical music, then learn how to waltz from a pro. Learn about the traditional artisanal industries that still inform village life during your time in charming Marktheidenfeld. Get your oompah on in the beer gardens and wine bars of Rüdesheim, Cologne, and Bamberg. Best of all, enjoy all this while unpacking only once, your deluxe Vantage river cruise ship serving as a floating hotel.

The icing on the cake is your two optional trip extension opportunities: Add a visit to Paris or to Bratislava & Prague to make the most of your time and your value.

If you’re interested in this itinerary and want to revel in even more Cultural Discoveries and immersive experiences, check out our combination river cruise Grand European River Cruise. Explore more and save.
