Danube River Cruise from Passau, Germany to Budapest, Hungary  
Text and Photos By Nancy Santry
Passau Germany 2
On the day we were to leave for the riverboat in Nuremburg we had a change of plans due to low water in the Danube River. The closest the boat could get to us was in Passau, Germany.  This is something that happens on river cruises, if the river is to shallow the boat can’t get up the river and if the rivers to high the boat can’t get under the bridges.
We stayed in Passau two extra days and were given motor coach tours to Nuremburg and Regensburg. Tours of each city you visit is included with the cost of the cruise.  We took the tour to Regensburg, Germany. Regensburg is a lovely city on the river. While there we had lunch that included German sausages with plenty of time afterward to explore the city and do some shopping.
While we were in Passau we went to a pipe organ concert that consisted of 5 organs playing at once,  making a total 17,388 pipes.  It was very powerful music.
I found that the best way to get money for shopping on this cruise was using your ATM card to get Euros.  Banks won’t change $100 bills due to counterfeiting.  I enjoyed touring Passau it has a large University and most of the people that live there are college students.
George and I  sailed the Danube River from Passau, Germany to Budapest, Hungary on the Avalon Waterways River Cruises on the Poetry.  The 12 day tour left from Boston, MA to Heathrow, London and then on to Prague, Czech Republic where we met up with the Globus Tours.  The tour included 3 nights at the modern Prague Hilton
