The Danube flows through the heart of Central Europe, making it an intrinsic waterway and one that is heavily featured by Avalon Waterways. For 2015 Avalon is offering more than 30 different itineraries on this river. Amongst the important ports along the Danube are three major European capitals: Vienna, Budapest and Bratislava. For the most part, these are still hidden gems, waiting to be discovered.

Vienna, Austria is a city rich in culture. This is where Mozart and Beethoven both worked creating masterpieces. Budapest, Hungary has beautiful bridges and buildings near the shores. Budapest also features an intricate system of thermal water caves. Bratislava is known for its baroque architecture and the Bratislava Castle, whose site has been inhabited since in the Bronze Age.

However, a river cruise along the Danube isn't just packed with big cities and European capitals. You will get to truly experience the village life when your ship docks in town and you have lunch in a cozy restaurant. Some of the smaller towns along the river include Regensburg and Melk.

The Danube is also a magical river to cruise during the holiday season. In almost every port you will encounter Christmas markets where locals set up stands to sell their crafts or delicious treats. Even if you've cruised the Danube before, it's worth another visit to see these spectacular Christmas Markets.

The Main-Danube canal, which joins the Main and Danube rivers and stretches for a length of 106 miles from Bamberg to Regensburg in Germany, with a total of 16 locks, has made it possible to travel by river cruise ship from the North Sea to the Black Sea.
