Our Germany, Austria, Poland cruise takes you on a 14-day adventure through central Europe.

Exclusively inclusive river cruising

Moments of history shape the sights you’ll see in the cities featured on the Danube River, Berlin and Kraków included.

Three nights in Berlin chronicle past political divides with a look back at Iron Curtain curfews, Jewish hardships and wartime woes while cultural narratives in the museums on Museum Island showcase an evolution of art through the ages. Onboard your Tauck riverboat for a 7-night cruise, you’ll visit picturesque Bavarian towns like Bayreuth, where composer Richard Wagner lived in 1872; Nuremberg, acclaimed as a leading arts and cultural center in the 15th and 16th centuries, Kehlheim, where the Danube meets the Main-Danube Canal and BMWs race into view; and cobble-stoned Straubing, dating back to 6,000 BC. Crossing into Austria, stop at Linz for a walking tour or boat ride in the nearby Lake District, explore Krems and the Wachau Valley by bicycle and attend an evening in Vienna at a private palace. Poignant pauses in Kraków, Auschwitz and Kazimier pay homage to lives lost during a three-night stay at the Sheraton Grand Krakow, overlooking beautiful Wawel Castle. Read Less

Fun in the Wieliczka Salt Mine

An unforgettable evening in the Wieliczka Salt Mine

Join us for an unforgettable dinner in the subterranean world of the Wieliczka Salt Mine outside Krakow in Poland; in operation continuously from the 13th to the 20th centuries and designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the mine illustrates the development of mining techniques in Europe through the ages, and is one of the city’s treasured sites. You'll descend down a shaft into the salt caverns like the miners do... and arrive at an amazing dinner venue that has to be seen to be believed!

Hotel Adlon Kempinski Berlin

A living legend in the heart of Berlin

Situated in Pariser Platz Square on Unter den Linden Boulevard within sight of Berlin's iconic Brandenburg Gate, Hotel Adlon Kempinski has held court in the heart of Germany's capital since 1907. Named among Northern Europe's top hotels by Condé Nast Traveler, the hotel's amenities include a full-service spa, two stylish bars and several refined, Michelin-starred restaurants.

Our Tauck Directors treated us as family members as they introduced us to the sights throughout our cruise.
