The Danube - Everything in the river
currently no date

Discovering the Danube from its source to its mouth. A trip organized by ZEIT REISEN in cooperation with Kastler Reisen.

33-day bus tour in a comfortable ZEIT REISEN bus from Ulm to Bucharest.

For thousands of years, Europe's most important river from the Black Forest to the Black Sea has shaped and connected natural areas and people who live on its banks in incomparable cultural, ethnic and religious diversity. This unique living and historical space forms a "Danube Europe", which we want to "experience" in the truest sense of the word on this journey from Ulm to Odessa.

The Danube as the "Road of Emperors and Kings
European cultural history between Regensburg and Mohács.

Bookable for groups on request!

Since Roman antiquity, the Danube has served as the most important transport route in Central Europe and the link between a region that is closely intertwined historically and culturally. Merchants, settlers and missionaries used this connection between East and West in the early Middle Ages, when new principalities and kingdoms developed along the Danube. Crusaders and pilgrims on their way to Byzantium and the "Holy Land" followed the course of the Danube, as did Hungarian, Habsburg and Ottoman armies. For more than 500 years, it served as the unifying bond of the Habsburg Danube monarchy - a "road of emperors and kings" along which cultural-historical monuments of the eventful common history of a transnational "Danube Europe" are to be discovered.

Other cultural and nature tours along the entire Danube are offered by the travel agency Kastler. (
