12 Day River Cruise Budapest to Prague

2020 Information

Explore European Jewish Heritage on board this timeless European river cruise, starting with two nights in vibrant Budapest, Hungary. You’ll sail along the Danube River with stops in Austria and Germany, and conclude your Danube River cruise with two nights in the Golden City of Prague—the capital of the Czech Republic. During your cruise, experts will join us to introduce you to the Jewish culture and its remarkable history in Europe.

In Hungary’s lively capital of Budapest, marvel at the eight bridges spanning the river as a local expert shows you the must-see sights, or take a tour focused on the Jewish heritage of the city. Join a guided tour of Vienna and discover the city’s Jewish life in the last century. In the heart of the Wachau wine region is Dürnstein, a 16th-century town with charming cobblestone streets and the baroque Stiftskirche with its luminous blue façade. In Melk, visit Austria’s majestic Benedictine Abbey, one of Europe’s largest monasteries, and enjoy a tasting of some of the Wachau Valley’s famous wines. You’ll love a guided walk through Passau, with its narrow streets and beautiful Patrician houses. Further up the Danube River, you’ll come to the medieval walls of Regensburg—the only German city not bombed during WWII. There, follow the traces of the Jewish history from the middle ages. Your last stop is the thousand-year-old city of Nuremberg, where you’ll marvel at the medieval fortifications, extraordinary gothic churches, and the Imperial Castle.

End your European river cruise with two nights in exquisite Prague. You’ll enjoy guided sightseeing, a Jewish Heritage tour of the fascinating Jewish Quarter, and an included excursion to Terezin Concentration Camp. This unforgettable and enriching European river cruise is an experience to remember for its remarkable history, traditions, and culture of the Jewish heritage found along the Danube.

During the cruise Eva Schloss, stepsister of Anne Frank, will travel with you. Enjoy her lectures on board!
