European Holiday Markets

European Holiday Markets Map
2024 & 2025 Departure Dates & Pricing

Nuremberg to Vienna (or reverse) - 8 days

Ship - S.S. Beatrice, River Princess

Detailed Itinerary: Nuremberg to Vienna

Skip to Vienna to Nuremberg itinerary

Day 1: Nuremberg, Germany (Embarkation)

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

Day 2: Nuremberg - Roth

Featured Excursion: Nuremberg City Tour with Christmas Market

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. Two hundred stalls filled with holiday wares—ornaments, nutcrackers, seasonal treats, and hand-carved toys—await you, and the irresistible aromas of roasting nuts, cinnamon, and grilled sausages waft through the air.

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

Day 3: Regensburg

Featured Excursion: Regensburg Walk with Thurn & Taxis Castle visit and Christmas Market

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.

Day 4: Deggendorf (Theresienthal) - Passau

Featured Excursions: Bavarian Forest Adventure, Passau Walking Tour with Christmas Market

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.

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 and Cider Farm Visit

Day 6: Cruising the Wachau Valley - Dürnstein - Vienna

Featured Excursion: Dürnstein Village Stroll with Spiced Wine Tasting and Organ Concert in a Monastery

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 a local spin on mulled wine and attend an organ concert at an Augustine church.

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 FigaroDon 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.

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

Choice of Belvedere Visit with Chritmas Market -OR- "Taste of Christmas" Vienna Walking Tour

Day 8: Vienna (Disembark)
