European River Cruising
Flowing from the English Channel to the Black Sea the rivers of Europe make their way through some of the most spectacular scenery and culturally rich landscapes in the world. And what better way to enjoy this than on one of Uniworld Cruises luxury river vessels?

From Amsterdam to Bucharest, Uniworld allows you to explore each nook and cranny of the these waterwayrs. The Netherlands is a beautiful starting point for your journey through – from the Rhine River you can view all that the country is famous for and discover that the stereotypes might not be far from the truth as you cruise past windmills, cows and tulips through the Dutch countryside.


Cruising the Canals of Amsterdam

From the Netherlands the Rhine then flows into Germany; past Cologne with its spectacular cathedral, through Rudesheim, Frankfurt, Miltenberg and the 18th century palace there, through Wurzburg for more palaces and onto the Main River in Bamberg. Witness a spectacular feat of engineering as you cruise the Main-Danube Canal in Nuremberg – a centre for WWII history, and into Regensburg.

The Danube River offers further treasures as it passes out of Germany through Passau, through the German Alps and into the spectacular Wachau Valley and its quaint, Baroque era Durnstein village which is famous for its saffron. The last stop for the Danube in Austria is Vienna – an imperial wonder of the late Austro-Hungarian Empire.

   
Wachau Valley, Austria

From Austria the river winds into Eastern Europe, offering something new for the regular Western European visitor. From Slovakia and into Hungary you’ll be witness to where western and eastern architecture collide into the awe inspiring masterpieces on the riverfront. Hungary offers even more with an array of Roman ruins and Ottoman mosques-turned-churches in Mohacs.

Delve further into history as you pass through Serbia and onto the majestic Iron Gates. From Serbia the Danube follows the border between Romania and Bulgaria. This pathway offers a unique insight into a whole new world of food, architecture, religion and traditions – one that you will never forget.

   
Floating by Budapest

Uniworld Cruises offers multiple itineraries all along the European river system. You can take your pick of East and West and everything in between. No other journey quite captures the diverse landscape of Europe and the best part is you only have to unpack your bag once. Choose from exciting excursions, dining options, group activities or simply sitting on your balcony and watching the world go by. This is one of the best and simplest ways to see the wonders of Europe.

Can't wait to hop on board your river cruise?
