Hungary River Cruises

Great Rail Journeys has some fantastic European river cruises to offer holidaymakers in search of relaxation and cultural exploration. A river cruise on the Danube is one of the ultimate tours of this kind, in that it gives you the opportunity to visit up to four countries in one holiday. This could not be easier as the ship acts as your floating hotel so you do not need to keep packing your suitcase.

As well as sailing through Germany, Austria and Slovakia, docking at tremendous destinations like Vienna and Bratislava, you can continue these Danube river cruises into Hungary. Visit the capital, Budapest, which has a wealth of stunning Baroque, Art Nouveau and Neo-Classical architecture.

There you can enjoy a guided tour of the city sights, soak up some of its legendary café culture and perhaps pay a visit to Margaret Island, a 1.6 mile stretch of beautiful parkland situated in the middle of the Danube.

While sailing through Hungary on your river cruise of the Danube you might also visit the wine growing region of Hajos, the picturesque Puszta Plains with their abundance of flora and fauna and Kalocsa, one of the oldest towns in Hungary.

The Classic Blue Danube

“Wonderful cruise from start to finish. Extremely comfortable ship (Amadeus Riva). Delightful crew who provided first class service throughout - nothing was too much trouble. Menu choice and all meals incredibly high standard for a relatively small ship. All excursions interesting and well organised by cruise directors. Would highly recommend to others.

“We had a great holiday and the scenery was fantastic. The first 4 days were done with trains, 1st day stop Stuttgart with castles to see, next 3 at Fussen and mountain's to see all great. The rest of the holiday was on ship on the Danube, terrific service and views.

“As we like rail travel we chose this holiday linking with a river cruise which we enjoy. This was one of your longer journeys, heading towards the cruise from Budapest. There were several holdups on the outward 2 day train journey and there was anxiety that connections would not not be made. Simon, our train courier, was excellent, keeping us up-to-date. Unfortunately we arrived too late for dinner at the NH hotel in Nuremburg and were given sandwiches instead, not a good start as we had set off early that morning. After another held-up journey to Budapest the next day we arrived at the ship late, rather exhausted. The cruise was delightful, accommodation brilliant, staff helpful, food good. We enjoyed visiting such interesting countries though we opted out of the Austrian trips to Salzburg or Austrian lakes and enjoyed a very relaxing cruise from Linz to Passau instead. The recital by the string quartet from the Vienna Philharmonic was a highlight and the musical duo were excellent too. It was unfortunate that on occasions we were moored next to another cruise ship, thereby blocking the view from our cabin. Consequently we did not stay in our cabin on Mozart deck as the moored ship next to ours made it dark. The train journey home was delayed to Brussels so we had to rush to check-in and then we were told Eurostar to St Pancras was delayed by 50 minutes. We therefore missed our rail connections and finally managed to get home by 12.30am on Saturday 9th September. We will recall the cruise and the beautiful ship with pleasure and were fortunate with the weather, but we would not consider long train journeys with various connections again, which were arduous. (We used the Baggage Man which was an excellent service.)
