Danube Holiday Markets (2017) : S.S. Maria Theresa

8 Days From Passau To Budapest

OVERVIEW

A festive Yuletide river cruise through the heart of old-world Europe.

Glorious baroque architecture, delightful concerts and sparkling wintertime scenery make for a truly unforgettable holiday cruise along the Danube. Along the way, you'll explore four scenic countries, each with its own seasonal treats and traditions. In Hungary, wander through the festive atmosphere of Budapest's Vorosmarty Square, nibbling kurtos kalacs, a unique pastry baked on rods and dusted with sugar. In Slovakia, market stalls display traditional Christmas items such as spiced ginger cookies and charming figurines fashioned from cornhusks. Enjoy a "Taste of Christmas" in Austria and a classical music concert at an opulent Viennese palace. Admire living Nativity scenes, join in onboard caroling, listen to an exhilarating organ recital, and even mail a letter from the famous Christkindl Post Office, where children from around the world send letters to Santa Claus each year.
