Vienna – magnificent metropolis

Succumb to Vienna’s magical charms and experience at first hand the Austrian capital’s numerous sights, its impressive buildings and monuments. At the heart of the vibrant inner city you’ll also find, in addition to the lively pedestrian zone and the wide range of shopping facilities, St. Stephen’s Cathedral, a world-famous cultural treasure and city landmark. Magnificent and hugely impressive buildings dating from many different eras are situated on the Ringstrasse, such as the Hofburg (Imperial Palace), the Parliament Building and the Staatsoper (State Opera). Schloss Schoenbrunn (Schoenbrunn Palace) with its glorious, extensive parklands is also without doubt one of the most beautiful buildings in Vienna: Maria Theresa’s former imperial residence and its gardens were declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996.

The Danube Delta

The Danube Delta is the best preserved river delta in Europe and is scenically particularly attractive. This is where the Danube divides into three main and countless side branches before finally flowing into the Black Sea. This ecosystem covers an area of 5,000 km² (2,000 mi²) and is Europe’s largest wetlands and the largest continuous stretch of reed beds on earth. The Danube Delta provides a habitat for more than 5,000 species of plants and animals, mainly due to its scenic diversity: floating islands, lakes and original floodplain forests alternate with extremely arid areas and sand dunes, which explains the particularly wide range of flora and fauna. Ships have no difficulty navigating the delta as far as ‘Kilometre 0’, the Danube‘s first kilometre marker and the point at which the river, after its long journey right across Europe, flows into the Black Sea.
