The mighty Danube flows through seven European countries and is the soul of Central Europe. It boasts opulent cities as well as picturesque towns and villages along its culture-rich banks, and passes through dramatic unspoilt countryside, including the UNESCO-protected Wachau Valley.

Join a very special cruise along this exceptional river in the company of one of the UK’s best-loved historians, Lucy Worsley. She will join you on a private excursion to the Royal Lipizzaner Stables and Spanish Riding School in Vienna. There, you’ll get an insight into the training work of the riders with their Lipizzaner stallions.
