View Full Itinerary

Exclusively inclusive river cruising

Moments of history shape the sights you’ll see in the cities featured on the Danube River, Berlin and Kraków included.

During a three-night stay in Kraków, poignant pauses in Poland's one-time capital, Auschwitz and Kazimierz pay homage to lives lost in tragic times. Board your Tauck riverboat in Hungary for a 7-night cruise, crossing into Austria to experience its storied capital, Vienna, with choices of sightseeing and an Imperial Evening at a private palace; stop at Linz for a walking tour or boat ride in the nearby Lake District; explore Krems and the Wachau Valley by bicycle; and visit historic and charming Bavarian towns like the "city of three rivers," Passau; ancient Regensburg; and cobblestoned Straubing, dating back to 6,000 BC. Then it's on via high-speed train to a three-night stay in Berlin, chronicling past political divides with a look back at Iron Curtain curfews, Jewish hardships and wartime woes, while cultural narratives in the museums on Museum Island showcase an evolution of art through the ages – and choices including an excursion to Potsdam, a Berlin bicycling trip and more.

Fun in the Wieliczka Salt Mine

An unforgettable evening in the Wieliczka Salt Mine

Join us for an unforgettable dinner in the subterranean world of the Wieliczka Salt Mine outside Krakow in Poland; in operation continuously from the 13th to the 20th centuries and designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the mine illustrates the development of mining techniques in Europe through the ages, and is one of the city’s treasured sites. You'll descend down a shaft into the salt caverns like the miners do... and arrive at an amazing dinner venue that has to be seen to be believed!

Hotel Adlon Kempinski Berlin

A living legend in the heart of Berlin

Situated in Pariser Platz Square on Unter den Linden Boulevard within sight of Berlin's iconic Brandenburg Gate, Hotel Adlon Kempinski has held court in the heart of Germany's capital since 1907. Named among Northern Europe's top hotels by Condé Nast Traveler, the hotel's amenities include a full-service spa, two stylish bars and several refined, Michelin-starred restaurants.

Our Tauck Directors treated us as family members as they introduced us to the sights throughout our cruise.

We enjoyed all the amenities and the Tauck Directors and staff. Have been on other cruises, first one with Tauck..they take great care to detail......ship was well appointed, staff did their best to be polite and courteous and cheerful! There were a few "bumps" along the way, however this was the first trip on this route and it all went well.

Most Memorable Moment:

The dinner at the Palace in Vienna, got to dance the Viennese Waltz the entertainment was fabulous.....the visit to the piano factory in Beyreuth Austria...absolutely amazing!


The content was glorious. The staff was extraordinary. The riverboat was as good as it gets. On the other hand, the hotels were mediocre, with the first utterly awful. A hovel -- blamed on Tauck. It was a small room on the first floor with defective air-conditioning that was never fixed. It overlooked a motorcycle parking lot and storage bins.

Most Memorable Moment:

Auschwitz. (It would be a good idea to call us about our comments in the above, "Tell us about your trip." There was no further room and we do have additional comments.) Our "Maybe" below is based on the comments above and the room in second hotel, The Adolon Hotel in Berlin room also had defective air-conditioning and it smelled like a sewer.
