How to Pick a European River

by Fran Golden | March 30, 2016

1. Upper Danube

This riverway inspired the famous "Blue Danube" waltz. Sail between Bavaria and Budapest, through Germany, Austria, Slovakia, and Hungary. Highlights include Vienna, with its world-class music, art, and café scenes, as well as Budapest, where you'll dock near the capital's magnificent Parliament building. This is the perfect route for culture vultures and fans of royal opulence.
