Destinations of the month: Germany, Austria and Hungary with Viking River Cruises

Guten Tag!

Cheers from Germany everyone. I am very happy to finally share the destination I am currently in 🙂

I finally am getting to experience what a river cruise is all about and what better way than traveling with one of the best and most prestigious cruising companies

Until then I invite you to follow my amazing hosts Viking River Cruises

    • It sure was exciting and who says there are no kids on Viking Cruises?

      There were 2 or 3 families with young children (approx 5-10 years old), others with teenagers and a few with 3 generations celebrating quality time on the Long Ship!

      You get to travel in comfort, eat, drink, sleep and get cultural immersion along the Danube. That is a winning combination, too bad it was too short 😉

  1. I lived in Regensburg for a long year, what an amazing city!! I also visited Nuremberg and Passau. All cities are spectacular. Great photos!

    • You did? Lucky you!

      Regensburg was a lovely surprise. Loved getting lost in the cobble-stoned streets, drinking local beer and just enjoy being transported back in time.

      Nice day trip!

      Stay tuned for lots of photos 🙂

  2. Wow!! I Never even Thought of a River cruse! This looks like an Amazing way to Discover some of the Most beautiful Cities in Europe!! Thank you for sharing your journey with us!
