Passau - Vienna

Powerful European kings and emperors used the paths along the Danube as a military and trade route. Follow them. Through attractive regions that were the wealth of the merchants and the nobility, as well as designed by nature The Danube winds here by the Machland Strudengau and the Wachau. And it becomes a designer of landscapes that look as aesthetic and harmonious like a well danced Danube Waltz. Cities like Linz, Grein and Krems fit perfectly in this harmony. As a culmination to expect Vienna with all its facets.

Itinerary

Stroll through the pretty little baroque town of Schärding and marvel at the famous Silberzeile lane, or take a walk through the “New Centre” of Passau, the three rivers town , which has been completely redesigned as a pedestrian, car-free area.

First, you will follow the river Inn to Passau where it joins the Danube and then you will cycle along the Danube towards Engelhartszell. Do not miss the opportunity to visit Engelhartszell abbey with its own liquor production. On your way to Linz you will come across the unique natural phenomenon - the “Schlögler Schlinge”, where the Danube has been forced to make a 180° turn. Once you have reached the European culture capital 2009, you can enjoy the lively historic old town, the scenic views of Linz from the Pöstlingberg or simply take a walk along the Danube.

You will leave Linz and cycle towards Strudengau and Nibelungengau. You will cycle past the Celtic village Mitterkirchen and just before the border between Upper and Lower Austria you will see the baroque town of Grein with Austria’s oldest city theatre and Greinburg castle. Then you will continue your journey to Maria Taferl and Melk. Here you should stop briefly and look up – otherwise you may miss out on seeing the beautiful Melk abbey, which towers above the Danube.

Today, you will leave Melk and cycle into the landscape of the Wachau region where you will be enchanted by the atmosphere of the typical fruit orchards and vineyards. Today, we will organise wine tasting for you, which is a must-do during a visit to the Wachau region. Refreshed, you will cycle past the wine towns of Spitz and Weißenkirchen as well as the ruins of Dürnstein castle. During the last kilometres of your bike tour you will cycle via the 1,000-year-old town of Krems and the Roman town of Tulln to the Danube metropolis of Vienna.

After breakfast individual departure.

The route

Along the river Danube flat or slightly descending, almost 100% on dedicated cycle path without any motor traffic. Only very short parts are on quiet minor roads. Simply a masterpiece of a bicycle tour as it should be.
