Detailed Itinerary: Nuremberg to Vienna

Skip to Vienna to Nuremberg itinerary

Day 1: Nuremberg, Germany (Embarkation Day)

Arrive at the Nuremberg Airport. If your cruise package inludes a group arrival transfer, or if you have purchased a private arrival transfer with the cruise operator, you will be greeted by a cruise representative and transferred to the ship.

Day 2: Nuremberg - Roth

For a truly over-the-top holiday extravaganza, look no further than Nuremberg, which boasts the largest and grandest Christmas Market in all of Germany—and that’s really saying something. The “Gingerbread Capital of the World” pulls out all the stops during the holidays, as you’ll see for yourself on a panoramic tour guaranteed to put you in a festive mood. You could not ask for a more perfect place to begin an exploration of Christmas traditions than Nuremberg. The people of Nuremberg hold their Christkindlesmarkt very close to their hearts. The iconic Christkind, with her white-and-gold dress, long blond curls and golden crown, has been the symbol for the Christmas Market for many decades. During Advent, she is the most important representative of the city; every year she opens the Christmas Market by declaring: “Welcome, young and old, to my little community of wood and cloth. While this market’s splendor is fleeting, the joy it brings is eternal.” And with that declaration, the market festivities begin in a town that is famous for its gingerbread and its long toy-making tradition.

Featured Excursion: Nuremberg city tour and Christmas Market

A special Captain’s Welcome Reception and Dinner will be prepared for you this evening.

Day 3: Regensburg

The Old Town of Regensburg sparkles with holiday lights and decorations this time of year, adding to its already considerable charms. Check out the brightest cultural sights, then head to what may very well be the most romantic Christmas Market in all of Germany, nestled within the courtyard of a beautiful baroque castle—as you take in the delights of the markets.

Featured Excursion:Regensburg walk with Thurn and Taxis Castle visit and Christmas market

Day 4: Deggendorf (Theresienthal), Passau

Take some time today to explore the beautifully expansive and heavily wooded Bavarian Forest. As the largest continuous forested region in Europe, there’s plenty to uncover—like unspoiled landscapes, abundant wildlife and idyllic atmosphere.

Featured Excursions: Exclusive Bavarian Forest village, Passau walk tour with Christmas market

Day 5: Cruising the Danube River - Linz, Austria

There’s more to Linz than its famous Linzer torte, although that alone makes it well worth a visit. The city has a thriving contemporary art scene, and its two Christmas Markets are over-the-top enchanting. In keeping with the Austrian traditions of good food and good music, Linz gave rise to both the Linzer torte and the Linz Symphony. The symphony is one of Mozart’s most celebrated works. The story goes that the composer was so inspired by the beauty of the city that he finished his Symphony No. 36 in less than a week here in 1783.

Choice of Linz walking tour with Christmas market or Linz town stroll with cider farm visit

Day 6: Cruising the Wachau Valley - Dürnstein - Vienna

After a scenic cruise through the beautiful Wachau Valley, we’ll reach the tiny village of Dürnstein. Walk along its cobbled streets, browse the shops selling apricot schnapps, and perhaps take a quick jaunt up to the ruins of a castle (with an intriguing tale all its own). Later, you can taste mulled wine and attend an organ concert at an Augustine church.

Featured Excursion: Dürnstein village stroll with spiced wine tasting and organ concert in a monastery

Day 7: Vienna

Vienna is a city steeped in history, music and elegant architecture. Mozart, Austria’s most famous citizen, was at the height of his creative powers when he lived here, writing perhaps his best-known works, including The Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni and Eine Kleine Nachtmusik. He found Vienna a very inspiring place, and so will you. You’ll have a full day to savor the Christmas spirit in Vienna with over 140 wooden stalls enticing you with every sort of delicacy. Be sure to try the rum balls and nutmeg-spiced macarons, which are local favorites, and amble through the adjacent park to admire the elaborately decorated trees.

Choice of Vienna city tour with Christmas market or "Taste of Christmas" Vienna walking tour

A special Captain’s Farewell Reception and Dinner will be prepared for you this evening.

Day 8: Vienna (Disembarkation Day)

Disembark the ship in Vienna. If your cruise package includes a group transfer, or if you have pruchased a private departure transfer, you will be transferred to Vienna International Airport for your flight home. (CB/BB)
