You’ll visit specific sites focusing on Jewish heritage and culture in Budapest, Vienna, Regensburg, and Prague, as well as a poignant visit to the former concentration camp at Terezin.

In lively Budapest, marvel at the eight bridges spanning the river and enjoy an introduction to the city by a local expert, as well as a guided tour through the Jewish Quarter. Leave Budapest and head upriver to Vienna, Austria. Guided sightseeing here focuses on the city’s Jewish heritage and culture. Stop in Dürnstein, in the heart of the Wachau Valley; then Melk, to visit the majestic Benedictine Abbey, and enjoy a tasting of some of the region’s famous wines. You’ll love a guided walk through Passau, with its narrow streets and beautiful patrician houses, all dominated by St. Stephen’s Cathedral. Sail further up the Danube River and you’ll come to the medieval walls of Regensburg, the only German city not bombed during WWII, where a guided tour will also show you the Jewish parts of the city. Your last stop along the Danube River is thousand-year-old Nuremberg. During guided sightseeing, marvel at the medieval fortifications, extraordinary gothic churches, and the Imperial Castle.

Disembark and travel to beautiful Prague, known as the “Golden City.” See the sights with a Local Guide, and join a guided walk through the Jewish Quarter. An excursion to Terezin is sure to leave a lasting impression. A memorable ending to a once-in-a-lifetime river cruise vacation!
