About The Danube Express

The Danube Express only carries 50 passengers, serving freshly prepared meals using traditional menus and served at a single sitting in the elegant Restaurant car.

A subtle blend of modern technology, décor and fixtures create an ambiance, evocative of a bygone era, when elegance and style were quintessential elements of travel.

Once on board, guests can relax in the knowledge that everything is taken care of - from champagne receptions and delicious regional cuisine to engaging guides and sightseeing at every stop.
