Overview Ship Info Deck Plans Supplier
This exciting new vacation introduces you to Salzburg and its surrounding area, and people and places along the Danube from Linz to Budapest, in the most active, engaged and fun ways imaginable. Spend 2 nights in Salzburg and enjoy a guided walk of the city, or if you prefer, a self-guided hike. We take you for a day to the Salzkammergut area where a variety of optional excursions are available: visit Emperor Franz Josef's imperial villa in Bad Ischl, or choose from a variety of sporting options. You might even decide to join an excursion up a mountain to an ice cave! Then drive to Linz, via the Austrian Lake District, for one night before boarding your Avalon river cruise ship. The choice is always yours: whether you taste locally produced cheese and beer brewed by Trappist monks near Linz, or hike along an old smugglers' route; bike to an ancient border defense near Mauthausen or visit World War II's largest concentration camp; paddle a canoe or meet with a local produce grower in the Wachau Valley; be introduced to a count in his castle; take a jogging tour around Vienna, or visit the city when it first awakes; attend a medieval knights' tournament in Visegrad and end your vacation with one night in Budapest, and maybe choose to learn some Hungarian? And all the while enjoy the comfort of your Avalon ship, with its delectable meals and warm, personal service. Certainly your home from home while you explore your new surroundings every day.
