The Rhine and DanubeDVD - 2010
Crusing the Rhine: Join Burt as he travels one of the world's great rivers. The Rhine starts in the Swiss Alps and flows for 865 miles through six European countries. Along this freshwater highway, Burt visits the world's olders distillery in Amsterdam for cocktails, savors 2,000 years of chocolate history at Cologne's chocolate museum, sips Rudesheim's signature coffee drink, admires Koblenz's bizarre statues and comical clocks, shares the unique history of Heidelberg's Church of the Holy Spirit, and makes time to shop for cuckoo clocks in Strasbourg. Cruising the Danube: Your eventful itinerary begins in Budapest, and proceeds to unforgettable stops at Gothic St. Martin's Cathedral in Bratislava, a classical music concert in Vienna. Then head to the magnificent Melk Abbey, Linz, home of the oldest pastry recipe in the world. Other stops include the Linzertorte, the Durnstein castle where King Philip was held for ransom, Vienna's Albertina museum that houses a million etchings, and a gypsy concert that concludes your cruise on a spirited note.
