Your bike tour along the Danube (10 days / 9 nights):

Discover the Romantic soul of the Danube … and Austria by bike!
Along the secured trail, following the majestic river, you will discover a rich historical past reflected in the small villages and châteaux! You will appreciate as well the beauty of the natural setting of the ‘Wachau’ area, one of the richest wine-growing areas of the country.
From Passau to Vienna, via Linz, capital of Upper Austria, a matchless escapade!

Total Distance: approx. 350 km ~ About 35 km to 50 km per day

Day 1 : Arrival in Passau


Individual sightseeing-tour in the “three river town” Passau. At 12.00 o’clock, in the cathedral you can listen to an organ concert (except on Sundays and public holidays) on the world’s largest church organ.

Day 2 : Passau - Upper Danube Valley


Cycle on the southern side of the Danube to Engelhartszell, where you can find Austria’s only Trappist monastery. You have the possibility to cross the Danube by ferry in Engelhartszell or in Jochenstein (1 km before Engelhartszell) at the power station on the northern side of the Danube. At the power station Jochenstein is the “House of the river”, where you can visit an exhibition about the river.

Day 3 : Upper Danube Valley - Aschach or Linz


First scenic highlight is the Danube Loop of Schlögen (“Schlögener Donauschlinge”) where the hard granite forces the river to an extremely tight loop. In Aschach the valley widens and you cycle through the fertile basin of Eferding. The baroque Monastery of Wilhering invites you to rest before you reach the cultural city of Linz, the capital of Upper Austria.

Day 4 : Aschach or Linz - Enns


Leave Linz and go on cycling via Mauthausen or Enns, Austria’s oldest town.

Day 5 : Enns - Ardagger or Grein


Via Wallsee, cycle to the beautiful old bargee town of Grein. You can visit the Greinburg (castle), the theatre of the town and the maritime museum.

Day 6 : Ardagger or Grein - Marbach or Maria Taferl or Melk


Through the romantic Strudengau you cycle to the ancient Roman town of Ybbs. Here begins the gentle landscape of the Nibelungengau and from afar you see the pilgrimage church of Maria Taferl which overlooks the Danube valley. In Melk you should visit the famous Benedictine Abbey and the idyllic Wachau area invites you to rest.

Day 7 : Marbach or Maria Taferl ou Melk - Weissenkirchen or Krems


You experience the most beautiful part of your journey : the picturesque Wachau area puntuacted by a lot of small charming villages and beautiful vineyards. Discover the romantic town of Dürnstein with its castle ruins

Day 8 : Weissenkirchen or Krems - Tulln


In Krems, take time to visit the old town with its arcaded courtyards and baroque town houses are worth seeing. Through the rambling meadows of the Tullnerfeld you reach your next destination in the area Traismauer then Tulln.

Day 9 : Tulln - Vienne


Shortly before Vienna, the valley narrows again, the Danube passes through the Vienna Gate on the edge of the Vienna Woods and leads you through Klosterneuburg to the charismatic cosmopolitan city of Vienna, famous for its cafe culture and its many sights. The bike path ends only a few minutes away from the cathedral of St. Stephan, Vienna’s landmark.
