Visited Cities on an Austria River Cruise

Vienna, Austria's capital, is one on the most notable destinations on an Austrian river boat cruise. The city's Gothic and baroque buildings ooze extravagance and its reputation as a cultural capital is well-deserved as it plays host to fabulous works of art, music and literature. For those who like to dine out and spend time shopping you won't be disappointed with the exquisite boutiques and fine restaurants that line the streets.

A little less ostentatious than Vienna is Nuremberg which boasts a wonderful fusion of traditional and contemporary living. Its flourishing parks and red sandstone buildings colour the city in vivid colours, and its fascinating history flows through the ancient streets of the Old Town which are still surrounded by medieval walls.

A well as the more popular larger cities, you can visit ancient towns that are steeped in a rich history when you embark on an Austria river cruise. The wine growing region of Melk boasts row upon row of clusters of succulent grapes that pepper the countryside. A visit to the striking Benedictine Abbey which is baroque in style is a must as its extraordinary Marble Hall is home to one of the world's most ornate ceiling frescos. Alternatively, you may prefer to amble around the medieval city centre of Regensberg which is justifiably a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
