The classic Route Passau - Budapest - Passau

The most popular river-cruise of all is the approx. 600 km long way from Passau to Budapest. Romantic narrow valleys, lovely wineyards and the expanses of the Hungarian plains are in charming interplay with each other. In the middle of all these you can find abbeys, castles and palaces as well as the three EU-capital cities Vienna, Bratislava & Budapest.
