The Blinn College Alumni and Friends Association will hold an informational meeting Thursday, May 16, to share information about its December 2020 cruise down the Danube River. The Danube River Cruise will take place Dec. 2-10, 2020, and takes guests on a beautiful sightseeing tour of Germany and Austria’s riverside cities, including visits to their world-famous Christmas markets.

The meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. in the Blinn College-Brenham Campus Kruse Center located at 208 Blinn Boulevard. The informational meeting will take place in the multi-purpose room on the second floor and will provide the opportunity for prospective participants to view a presentation regarding the trip and to ask questions of tour organizers.

The trip will begin Dec. 2, 2020, with an overnight flight to Würzburg, Germany. Guests will enjoy a walking tour of Würzburg, often referred to as “the Jewel of the Main River,” before proceeding to Rothenburg, one of the most well-preserved medieval walled towns in all of Germany. There, visitors can explore the charming Christmas market and visit the Käthe Wohlfahrt Christmas store and museum.

The tour will continue to Nuremberg, where guests will begin a leisurely six-night cruise along the Danube River aboard a modern ship with a panoramic deck terrace café, panorama salon and bar, and excellent cuisine. Along the way, visitors can see Nuremberg’s Christmas market; the medieval city of Regensburg; the ornate Baroque architecture of Passau; the 900-year-old Benedictine Melk Abbey in Emmersdorf, Austria; the Vienna Opera House; and the awe-inspiring St. Stephen’s Cathedral.
