Itinerary

Day 1

Travel to Germany, and transfer to Engelhartszell near Passau, where A-ROSA DONNA waits. Settle into your cabin, and prepare to depart in the early evening as your delightful Christmas river cruise begins.

Day 2

Enjoy a memorable Christmas Eve, as A-ROSA DONNA docks in Durnstein. This pretty medieval city is one of the most popular spots in the Wachau region, and sits beneath the ruins of Burgruine Durnstein, the castle where Richard the Lionheart was once held captive. Wander the streets, taking in the sights until your ship leaves Durnstein to meander through the Wachau Valley. This UNESCO heritage site, which runs between Melk and Krems, boasts some of the most majestic scenery anywhere along the Danube.By the mid evening you'll have arrived in Vienna. The city is a wonder to behold at Christmas, and you'll discover decorations everywhere, and elegant buildings lit by floodlights or draped with festive lights, if you choose to head ashore this evening.

Day 3

On Christmas Day, your included festive city tour will bring Vienna to life even further, and there will be a chance to explore under your own steam, before on-board celebrations and a party atmosphere ensure a memorable time is had by all.

Day 4

Possibly the first thing you'll notice as you arrive in the Austrian town of Melk, this morning, is the imposing Baroque monastery - Melk Abbey - on the hill above the town. Spend the morning strolling the pretty squares, courtyards and cobbled streets lined with old-European houses, or perhaps visit the Abbey itself, before your A-ROSA ship departs in the early afternoon.

Day 5

This morning you'll arrive back in Engelhartszell. Say goodbye to your new friends and the crew as you disembark to begin your journey home at the end of a memorable Christmas break. Back to top
