Grand Christmas and New Years

Nuremberg to Budapest

with Uniworld

Celebrate the holidays and welcome the New Year in incredible style across 3 countries.

You’ll sail through Germany, Austria, and Hungary along the shimmering Danube and past incredible sights on this unique itinerary. Explore charming old-world villages and Gothic cathedrals and escape the hurry and hassle of the holidays as you relax onboard a luxurious ship and cruise through the ravishing landscapes of the Danube.

Celebrate Christmas Eve in medieval Regensburg and ring in the New Year in Vienna. Shop the stalls of the Nuremberg Christmas Market, famous for its gingerbread. Wander through locations from The Sound of Music in beautiful Salzburg and then warm up with rum-laced coffee.

The mighty Danube takes you through three nations decked in all their holiday finery at this most delightful time of year.

Please note that most Christmas Markets in Europe end their season on the 23rd of December and will not be available after that date.
