January is Vienna Ball season and, to celebrate, Scenic (https://www.scenic.co.uk/) is offering guests the chance to experience Vienna in all of its glory first-hand. Our picture shows the Austrian Parliament building.
The eight-day Gems of the Danube was inspired by Vienna Ball season where around 450 take place each year.
In modern times, the traditional Waltz dance is joined with contemporary sounds to suit every taste. The celebrations consist of public dances across the city with over 2,000 hours of dancing.
The eight-day Gems of the Danube itinerary calls at Nuremberg (Germany), Regensburg (Germany), Salzburg (Austria), Melk (Austria), Vienna (Austria) and Budapest (Hungary) where guests will depart the Space Ship. Guests can travel to board the ship by flying to Munich from one of up to 16 UK airports and upon arrival will be transferred to Nuremburg.
Some of the key highlights included the chance to visit WWII sites in Nuremburg, a leisurely cycle to the Walhalla monument in Regensburg, a journey to Salzburg to explore the birthplace of Mozart and the city backdrop for The Sound of Music.
Guests can also enjoy a guided visit to the Belvedere museum, one of Europe’s most stunning Baroque landmarks and discover the greatest collection of Austrian art dating from the Middle Ages, followed by a private classical evening concert featuring the music of Strauss and Mozart.
Prices start from £1,645 (based on the 1 April departure).
