This exciting new vacation introduces you to Salzburg and its surrounding area, and people and places along the Danube from Budapest to Linz and to Salzburg, in the most active, engaged and fun ways imaginable. Start your vacation in Hungary's capital city where you board your Avalon ship and head for Visegrad. The choice is always yours: attend a medieval knights' tournament in Visegrad; take a jogging tour around Vienna, or visit the city when it first awakes; meet with a local produce grower in the Wachau Valley, or paddle a canoe; be introduced to a count in his castle; bike to an ancient border defense near Mauthausen or visit World War II's largest concentration camp; taste locally produced cheese and beer brewed by Trappist monks near Linz, or hike along an old smugglers' route. Say goodbye to your ship and crew in Linz and drive via the Austrian Lake district, to Salzburg for two nights. Enjoy a guided walk of the city, or if you prefer, a self-guided hike. We take you for a day to the Salzkammergut area where a variety of optional excursions are available: visit Emperor Franz Josef's imperial villa in Bad Ischl, or choose from a variety of sporting options. You might even decide to join an excursion up a mountain to an ice cave! Transfer to Munich for the last night of this memorable vacation.
