THE ELEMENTS OF A LUXURY GOLF RIVER CRUISE

 Other than the championship golf courses, there is the need for luxury accommodation, gourmet food, excellent service, fantastic sights to see, and great prizes to be won. Explore our website to discover all these elements that form part of your next golf trip in Europe.

 

LUXURY RIVER CRUISE SHIPS THAT ARE SIMPLY THE BEST

 Rivers were once Europe’s “highways” across the continent, serving as life-sustaining links between the continent’s grandest capitals. Nowadays, your river cruise ship is a “floating hotel” that can often dock right in the heart of these historic cities, steps away from top cultural attractions and historic sites.

CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED GOURMET FOOD

 AmaWaterways is the only river cruise line to be inducted into the Confrérie de la Chaîne des Rôtisseurs, the oldest food and wine society in the world.

 Begin with a sophisticated and stylish setting. Toss in a cheerful atmosphere. Add our sumptuous cuisine, wonderful regional wines and attentive service; then sprinkle in gorgeous views. The result — an outstanding dining experience.

 

DISCOVER EUROPEAN CAPITAL CITIES IN BETWEEN YOUR GOLFING DAYS

 Lined with charming red-roofed villages, steeply terraced vineyards, picturesque churches and the crumbling ruins of medieval castles, the Danube River has captivated writers, musicians and artists throughout the centuries. Explore such legendary capitals as Prague, Vienna and Budapest, as well as remarkably preserved towns and villages that appear untouched by the passage of time.

LOCATIONS VISITED

 

 PRAGUE

 Prague, capital city of the Czech Republic, is bisected by the Vltava River. Nicknamed “the City of a Hundred Spires,” it's known for its Old Town Square, the heart of its historic core, with colourful baroque buildings, Gothic churches and the medieval Astronomical Clock, which gives an animated hourly show. Completed in 1402, pedestrian Charles Bridge is lined with statues of Catholic saints.

PASSAU

 Passau, a German city on the Austrian border, lies at the confluence of the Danube, Inn and Ilz rivers. Known as the Three Rivers City, it is overlooked by the Veste Oberhaus, a 13th-century hilltop fortress housing a city museum and observation tower. The old town below is known for its baroque architecture, including St. Stephen's Cathedral, featuring distinctive onion-domed towers and an organ with 17,974 pipes.

LINZ

 Linz is a city in Upper Austria, straddling the Danube River midway between Salzburg and Vienna. Baroque buildings, including former town hall, Altes Rathaus and the old cathedral or Alter Dom, ring Hauptplatz, the old town’s main square. The riverside Lentos Kunstmuseum Linz has a major modern art collection. Across the river, the striking Ars Electronica Center focuses on society, technology and life in the future.

Linz was the European Culture Capital in 2009

DÜRENSTEIN

 Dürnstein is a small town on the Danube river in the Krems-Land district, in the Austrian state of Lower Austria. It is one of the most-visited tourist destinations in the Wachau region and also a well-known wine growing area. Dürnstein was first mentioned in 1192 when, in the castle above the town, King Richard I of England was held captive by Leopold V, Duke of Austria after their dispute during the Third Crusade. Richard the Lionheart had offended Leopold the Virtuous by casting down his standard from the walls at the Battle of Acre, and the duke suspected that King Richard ordered the murder of his cousin Conrad of Montferrat in Jerusalem. In consequence Pope Celestine III excommunicated Leopold for capturing a fellow crusader. The duke finally gave the custody of the king to Emperor Henry VI, who imprisoned Richard at Trifels Castle. Dürnstein Castle was almost completely destroyed by the troops of the Swedish Empire under Field Marshal Lennart Torstenson in 1645

VIENNA

 Vienna, Austria’s capital, lies in the country’s east on the Danube River. Its artistic and intellectual legacy was shaped by residents including Mozart, Beethoven and Sigmund Freud. The city is also known for its Imperial palaces, including Schönbrunn, the Habsburgs’ summer residence. In the MuseumsQuartier district, historic and contemporary buildings display works by Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt and other artists.

BRATISLAVA

 Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, is set along the Danube River by the border with Austria and Hungary. It’s surrounded by vineyards and the Little Carpathian mountains, crisscrossed with forested hiking and cycling trails. The pedestrian-only, 18th-century old town is known for its lively bars and cafes. Perched atop a hill, the reconstructed Bratislava Castle overlooks old town and the Danube.

BUDAPEST

 Budapest, Hungary’s capital, is bisected by the River Danube. Its 19th-century Chain Bridge connects the hilly Buda district with flat Pest. A funicular runs up Castle Hill to Buda’s Old Town, where the Budapest History Museum traces city life from Roman times onward. Trinity Square is home to 13th-century Matthias Church and the turrets of the Fishermen’s Bastion, which offer sweeping views.

 

The carefully selected golf courses have been designed by some of the best names in the business such as Jack Nicklaus and Bernhard Langer and all live up to their reputation as some of the best in Europe.

Albatross Golf Club - Czech Republic

Umbraco.Core.Dynamics.PropertyResult
Designed by Keith Preston, and opened in 2009, the golf course occupies an area of more than 80 hectares (197,684 acres) and is situated on a hillside bordering the Cesky Kras Nature Reserve. There are seven lakes on the course covering more than 20,000 square metres, 65 sand traps and more than 1200 newly planted mature trees adorning the landscape.   The leading golf course in the Czech Republic as voted for by Golf Digest, this wonderful resort will start your golfing tour o? in perfect style.

Hartl Resorts - Beckenbauer Course - Germany

Umbraco.Core.Dynamics.PropertyResult
Bad Griesbach, Germany Host of the Porsche European Open Regal golfing pleasure on lush greens and perfect fairways – this championship course, created by former Masters champion Bernhard Langer, seems to be one with the meadow landscape surrounding the small river Rott and was awarded a “world class” rating within one year of opening. The 18 holes in Penning, right beside the Audi Golf Course, do indeed pack a punch. They don’t hold back when it comes to challenges, but also o?er sufficient opportunities for some serious success. What makes this golf course so special is the quality of the hand-mown greens and fairways, which remain tip-top even during the summer thanks to a double-row irrigation season.

Diamond Country Club - Austria

Umbraco.Core.Dynamics.PropertyResult
DIAMOND COURSE Atzenbrugg, Austria Host of the Lyoness Austrian Open This Championship course, host of the Lyoness Open powered by Sporthilfe Cashback Card, on the outskirts of Vienna, challenges every player’s ability, thanks to the need for good course management and that important element of water. Experience the European Tour standard which allows for precise shots in challenging settings, far from those packed fairways. The trim cut grass and perfectly kept greens allow for the best games of golf, surrounded by beautiful and fair water hazards.

Penati Country Club - Slovakia

Umbraco.Core.Dynamics.PropertyResult
LEGENDS COURSE Senica, Slovakia Host of the Slovakian Open This 18-hole golf course has been built according to plans authored by Nicklaus Design, one of the world’s leading design firms. The Nicklaus Design LEGEND COURSE complies with USGA standards at the world PGA level. 60% of the world’s golf courses which host PGA tournaments have been designed by Nicklaus Design. Along with many other scenic features, this course counts the longest hole in Europe among its challenges. The 716-metre 15th hole – awaits golf enthusiasts, o?ering 11 tees. The view alone is fascinating.

Pannonia Country Club - Hungary

Umbraco.Core.Dynamics.PropertyResult
Budapest, Hungary Host of the Hungarian Open The 18-hole golf course of Pannonia Golf & Country Club was designed by the famous Austrian course designer Hans G. Erhardt. The golf course lies in a valley so the varied forms of its fairways provide a great golf experience. Lakes come into play at 8 holes and pin placements may also present a challenge at the hilly greens. With 6 di?erent tee-boxes, both beginners and advanced players can get a true and fair idea of their golf skills. The natural environment and the beautiful, carefully maintained course inspires golf players to hit great shots. Erhardt also designed the Golf course Fontana, host of the Austrian Open for many years and believes that Pannonia is still the best course in Hungary.
