Bonus Excursion - Book by 28 FEB 2019

Visit to the largest baroque castle in Hungary, in the town of Gödöllö, about 30 km from Budapest. Emperor Franz and Sisi received it as a coronation gift from the Hungarian government. Built in the 18th century, the castle was the favourite summer residence of the Hungarian queen. An approx. 1.5 hour guided tour allows you to visit the renovated and contemporary apartments, the ballroom and the armoury. After the castle tour you will be served a piece of cake and coffee in the beautiful baroque café. From the castle we return by bus to the ship.

Itinerary

Day 1
Embarkation on the MS Johann Strauss in Vienna-Nussdorf. Departure in the afternoon.

Day 2
Arrival in Budapest and *city tour around noon. The tour also includes a ride up to the Gellért Hill with a beautiful view on the city with its palaces, churches and bridges. The afternoon can be spent during some free time in Budapest. After lunch the guests have the possibility to join the optional excursion to **Gödöllö and see the castle and its chambers, where Empress Elisabeth once lived. In the evening the MS Johann Strauss leaves Budapest behind.

Day 3
After a technical stop in the border town of Mohács in the morning, the ship reaches Osijek on the Drava, in Croatia, in the afternoon. A coach excursion sets off from here to *Kopacki Rit nature park. The more than 17,000-hectare area of wetlands, ponds, backwaters and lakes boasts a wide variety of plants and animals. After the return, *sightseeing in Osijek, Croatia’s fourth-largest city, is on the programme. (In case of high- or low water the ship will stop in Vukovar instead of Osijek.) Continuation of the cruise.

Day 4
Today, you will enjoy the ship’s passage through the gorge on the Danube in the more than 100 kilometre-long Djerdap section, where the Danube forms a gorge which created the largest river cliff landscape in Europe. Here, the river is narrowed down to 100 metres, is up to 70 metres deep and lined with cliffs that are over 300 metres high. In addition, historical monuments enrich the impressive fluvial topography. The most spectacular section is formed by the three kilometre-long “Iron Gate“ at the end of the gorge. An unforgettable experience!

Day 5
During the night, the ship will have arrived in Emden, near the mouth of the Ems at the Dollart, a bay in the Wadden Sea. A *walking tour will lead you among other buildings to the heart of the town, the Ratsdelft canal, where the town hall towers can be found. At noon, the ship casts off again and travels through the North Sea bay, to make a stop at the coastal city of Delfzijl in the afternoon, before it sets off towards the IJsselmeer in the evening.

Day 6
Arrival in the morning in the Bulgarian port Svistov, full-day excursion by coach to *Veliko Târnovo incl. lunch. It was once the capital of the second Bulgarian empire – a city just like in a picture book. Afterwards visit in the nearby open-air museum *Arbanassi with houses from the 16th and 17th century that were built as a fortress, five churches and two monasteries. Return on board in Russe.

Day 7
Arrival in the Romanian Danube port Harsova, coach excursion to *Constanta. The big harbour town at the Black Sea was founded by the Greeks and became an important harbour in Roman times. Nowadays the city is a popular destination for tourists. Return on board in Harsova.

Day 8
Sailing on the Sulina-arm to the estuary mouth into the Black Sea before noon. In Sfântu Gheorghe there is an optional *boat excursion to the unforgettable Danube Delta that stretches out on a 4.340 km² large area. It is a huge nature and bird paradise with a unique flora and fauna.

Day 9
Disembarkation after breakfast in Braila.
