The Imperial Cities of Europe

The romantic imperial cities of central Europe reward travellers with exquisite sites. Vienna has a history synonymous with classical music and high culture. It boasts grand Hapsburg architecture in the Schönbrunn Palace and Hofburg Palace, with plenty of cafés perfect for lovers of coffee and delicious cakes to relax with a strudel or a Sachertorte. Historic Prague's medieval old town square exhibits an intriguing astronomical clock while the world's largest ancient castle looks out onto the ethereal Charles Bridge and its 30 statues. Charming Budapest - like Vienna - was once an outpost of the Roman Empire and now offers world-class spa culture and beautiful views of its ornate Parliament building overlooking the Danube.

The Classic Blue Danube
27 Sep 2023
J W Smail
5 stars
“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.

“This was our first tour with Great Railway Journeys. We enjoyed our holiday which was very organised and met our expectations as we saw and experienced everything we wanted to see. We were lucky to have such a dedicated and enthusiastic tour manager. On the down side I would say that due to some of the lengthy journeys on the train between cities and guided tours did inevitably make it quite tiring at times. Would recommend though.

“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.)
