Welcome to Nuremberg! Your Danube Tour begins in this historical Bavarian city which dates back to the 11th century. Although most of the city was destroyed by World War II bombing, many of the buildings, including the medieval Nuremberg Castle, have been restored to their former splendor using the original stones. Nuremberg is the perfect starting place for your Teeming River Cruises European tour. After settling in your cabin, which will be your floating hotel room for the duration of the cruise, a mandatory Safety and Information Briefing will begin at 6 PM.

Step into Regensburg and back in time. The history-drenched Bavarian city of Regensburg is often described as “Germany’s medieval miracle” and is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. With more than 1,400 original historic buildings still standing, it is easy to envision what life would have been like centuries ago as you wind through the narrow streets lined with 13th and 14th-century patrician houses and cross old town squares. There is a myriad of treasures to uncover from Germany’s oldest surviving stone bridge, the imposing St. Peter’s Cathedral, the stunning interior of Old Chapel (Alte Kapelle), the enchanting Old Town clock tower, and Porta Pretoria (arched gate to an ancient Roman fort built in 179 AD) ~ just to name a few. If you worked up an appetite with all your exploring, treat yourself to a sausage at the Old Sausage Kitchen (Alte Würstküche), Germany’s oldest restaurant. You might also enjoy sampling some regional dishes and a cold mug of beer at a traditional Bavarian Beer Garden (such as Alte Linde or Bischofshof am Dom).

Known as Dreiflüssestadt (City of Three Rivers), Passau is the place where the Danube meets the Inn and the Ilz. The picturesque city lies in Germany’s far southeast corner near the Austrian border. Settled since prehistory and a former hub of the salt trade, it became the Roman village of Batavis, then later the Holy Roman Empire’s largest diocese and a sword-making center. The city is overlooked by the Veste Oberhaus, a 13th-century hilltop fortress housing a city museum and observation tower. The old town below is known for its baroque architecture, including St. Stephen’s Cathedral, featuring distinctive onion-domed towers and an organ with 17,974 pipes. Saint Stephan’s Cathedral is one of Passau’s favorite attractions and one you surely do not want to miss. Passau with its unique charm and atmosphere is one of the most beautiful and spectacular German cities on the Danube.

Docking right in the heart of town will allow you to easily explore Linz, Austria’s third largest city. First founded by the Romans, it is steeped in both history and culture. The Old Town is perfect for leisurely strolls past centuries-old architecture, or you explore the riverside Lentos Kunstmuseum renowned for its modern art. The picturesque Hauptplatz (The Main Square) of Linz is one of the largest enclosed squares in Austria and ideal for meandering.

Vienna, the capital of Austria, is known as both the “City of Dreams” (thanks to Sigmund Freud’s influence) and the “City of Music” (inspiring creative geniuses such as Strauss, Mozart, and Beethoven). The day is yours to begin your exploration of this enchanting imperial city. Soar to new heights in Vienna’s famous giant Ferris Wheel (Wiener Riesenrad), which has been turning high above the city and the Danube for over a century. The day is yours; the choice is yours.

Discover Bratislava’s unique blend of modern and medieval. While one of the youngest European capitals, this historic gem boasts over a 2,000-year history and is the ideal finale to your encompassing tour with Teeming River Cruises. Wind through the labyrinth of cobblestone lanes lined with colorful 18th-century buildings and sidewalk cafes in the traffic-free Old Town, the historic heart of Bratislava. Take in seventeen centuries of Slovak history while exploring its 13th-century Old Town Hall, St. Martin’s Cathedral (coronation site of many of the Kings of Hungary), the Art Nouveau Little Blue Church and the Neoclassical Primatial Palace. The landmark Bratislava Castle majestically overlooking the city is truly postcard perfect.
