Total meals included:
Travel to Munich and transfer to Engelhartszell to embark A-ROSA DONNA. The Trappist monks in Engelszell have taken a strict vow of silence, yet they produce beer that's worth talking about, and that's exported as far afield as the US. But there's more to enjoy in this tiny village than a cold "Benno", "Gregorius" or "Nivard" beer. Visitors to the "Mini-Danube" water experience can entertainingly learn about the Danube, while in the newly renovated walk-through aquarium, they'll encounter amazing fish such as sturgeon measuring up to 2 m long. History buffs won't be disappointed by Engelhartszell either. The settlement is mentioned in a Roman street directory dating back to the second century A.D., at the time it was called "Stanacum". Engelhartszell has been through a lot since then. The Romans, the brutal Middle Ages and the bombastic Baroque and Rococo ages have all left their marks, inviting the visitor to take a journey back in time. And while you yourself conquer the abbey grounds, the abbey church and the market square, you can let your thoughts roam freely as you enjoy the wonderful sense of peace and quiet. There's something to be said for taking a vow of silence.
"Wien is a schöne Stadt, des weiß alle Welt," is the opening line of one of the most famous songs written by the Viennese cabarettist Georg Kreisler. Roughly translated, this means "Vienna is a beautiful city, and the whole world knows it". Yet beauty is just one of the many facets of a city whose inhabitants are renowned for a snide sense of humour known as "Schmäh". To really experience Vienna, you need to soak up the genteel atmosphere over an "Einspänner" (a strong black coffee served with whipped cream) in one of the city's coffee houses. Or visit a "Heurige" (a Viennese wine tavern). Or order an "Eitrige" (a cheese-filled sausage) at a sausage stand. Palatschinke (pancake), Knödel (dumplings), strudel, Sachertorte and Wiener Schnitzel. To distract yourself from all these delicious calories, just delve into the city's history. The opulence of the Habsburg dynasty can be found everywhere. The Spanish Riding School, the amusement park in the Prater public park, the exhibitions in the MuseumsQuartier art and culture complex … there are so many unmissable attractions. And after all this, the best way to relax is by listening to Viennese classical music. From Mozart and Beethoven to Haydn and Johann Strauss: Vienna is where the greatest classical masterpieces were born - music is in the city's blood.
The approximately 1,000-year-old city of Krems is an important part of the Wachau's cultural landscape. The city's most famous landmark is the Steiner Tor, a perfectly preserved city gate. If you stroll through it, you'll find yourself surrounded by medieval houses and historical buildings. A covered stairway leads from the Pfarrkirche St. Veit church, which is well worth seeing, to the late Gothic Piarist Church, known as "the little sister of Vienna's St. Stephen's Cathedral". The opposite side of the Danube offers an imposing view of Göttweig Abbey, a Benedictine monastery that sits alone on the crest of the hill. In the Cartoon Museum, the permanent exhibition featuring the work of the artists Manfred Deix and Gustav Peichl is sure to put you in a good mood. Later, arrive in Melk - famous for its spectacular Benedictine Abbey. Melk is a picturesque small town where you can admire stunning views of the Danube and the surrounding countryside from its dramatic clifftop perch.
