The Danube is one of the most iconic cycling routes in Europe. The second longest river in Europe has inspired artwork since medieval times and is your almost constant companion. The route is paved and mainly flat, making it a perfect cycling trip for beginners. You can do it in 4 days, or take 8 days if you want more time to take in the incredible sights along the way!
You can choose between a 4-days/3-nights itinerary or an 8-day/7-night itinerary
The 4 day/3 night itinerary is shown below. You can view the 8-day/7-night itinerary here.
Day 1: Individual arrival in Passau, Germany
Check-in and you receive your travel documents. If you’ve rented a bike or an e-bike, you will pick it up in our bike centre. You’ll have the rest of the day to explore Passau, known as the City of Three Rivers. Accommodation: 4* hotel.
Day 2: Passau–Linz, approx. 98 km
Your cycling tour starts in the Upper Danube Valley (Obere Donautal), where you’ll soon find yourself in Austria. The highlights of today’s journey include a visit to the Engelszell Monastery, the only ‘Trappist” monastery in Austria, where you can sample homemade liqueurs. You’ll also see the famous Schlögener Loop, where the Danube changes its direction in a dramatic 180° loop. Try to arrive early in Linz for some sightseeing in the third largest city in Austria. Accommodation: 4* hotel.
Day 3: Linz–Spitz, approx. 120 km
Today is a full day both with cycling and all the sights there are. You enter the UNESCO Wachau Valley, one of the most picturesque parts of the Danube Cycle Path! Enns, the oldest town in Austria, is worth a stop, as is a visit to Melk Abbey, a Benedict Abbey overlooking the town of Melk with panoramic views. Near the end of the day, you’ll cycle through Wachau’s vineyards to Spitz. This is an excellent place to visit a typical wine tavern and taste the Grüner Veltliner and Reisling wines that the region is so famous for. Accommodation: 3* hotel.
Day 4: Spitz–Vienna, approx. 105 km, individual departure or stay extra nights in Vienna
Today is a day of cycling through the picturesque villages of Weißenkirchen and Dürnstein. Krems, the 1000-year-old city, is also worth a visit. Finally, you’ll arrive in Vienna where your tour comes to an end. Your luggage will be available for pickup in Vienna by 5:30 pm at the latest.
Congratulations! You’ve done it! You’re now free to depart or to spend a few days exploring Vienna (our recommendation).
