Setting sail from Passau

The pretty Bavarian town of Passau, situated close to Germany's border with Austria, enjoys a unique setting at the confluence of three rivers: the Inn, the Ilz and the Danube. Passau grew rich on the back of the medieval salt trade, and went on to become the most important bishopric in the Holy Roman Empire; the narrow cobbled streets of the handsome old town, the Altstadt, haven't changed all that much in the centuries since.

Our tip

If you get a chance to go to an organ concert in the cathedral, snap it up. And try not to schedule a Sunday in Passau - nothing will be open.

Arriving in Budapest

Budapest is one of Eastern Europe's most appealing cities, a vibrant and welcoming capital that straddles the Danube. The history of Budapest has been somewhat turbulent - ransacked by the Mongols in 1241, occupied by the Ottoman Turks for over a century, and almost flattened by the Soviets in 1945 - but plenty of older buildings survive, including the imposing Parliament and iconic St Stephen's Basilica. Although a pedant might point out that Budapest has only really existed since 1873; up until then the city's two distinct halves, Buda and Pest, were separate towns.

Don't miss

If you are a music lover, you can’t miss a performance at the Opera House – affordable, and great music in a wonderful building.

What we love

The Crystal River Cruises difference is all in the pace of life - slowed down itineraries, plenty of overnights in port, and leisurely hours on board to make the most of the captivating scenery. Add to that the highest crew to passenger ratio on any European river cruise vessel, with crew trained to Crystal's usual high standards, and you have a winner.

Hotel Residenz, Passau

Where to stay in Passau

Don’t hold your breath for anything amazing. That said, the Residenz Passau is quite nice.

Burghausen Castle, Germany

Excursions from Passau

Burghausen is a short drive away and well worth a visit, not least for its magnificent castle.

Hotel Palazzo Zichy, Budapest

Our favourite hotel in Budapest

We like the Hotel Palazzo Zichy on the Pest side of the river, which used to be the residence of Count Nándor Zichy.

Tokaji aszú wine, Hungary
