A Musical Feast
Your evening entertainment is designed to complement the region through which you're sailing.

Europe has long been a cultural hub of artists and artisans. As an exclusive highlight on your river cruise you can enjoy the creativity of German flame worker Hans-Joachim Ittig as he demonstrates the intricacies of glass blowing. Be entertained by the Hungarian State Folk Ensemble with their authentic blend of folk music, dance and dramatic plays, you will be delighted to learn about these dance-house traditions.
