Danube Cycling Holidays

Danube Cycling Holidays

Explore the Danube by bike with a range of self-guided cycling holidays that follow different stages of the idyllic Danube Cycle Path.


First-timers should consider the Passau to Vienna cycling holiday as this really is the classic Danube route, showcasing much of the river's most celebrated scenery and landmarks. On this holiday you'll see the majestic Danube loop and the charming wine villages of the Wachau Valley.

Further back upstream, in Germany, the young Danube wends it's way through Bavaria towards the Austrian border and here too you will find a variety of wonderfully peaceful cycling routes to consider

Bike and boat cycling holidays on the Danube are becoming ever more popular as they offer cyclists the opportunity to see even more of the river. The most popular routes start and finish in Passau on the German/Austrian border and head downstream to Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest. Each day you'll disembark for relaxing riverside rides that unveil more of the Danube's superb scenery and historic towns.

The delightful, medieval town of Passau sits at the confluence of three rivers, the Danube, the Inn and the Ilz. Our 3 Rivers Single Centre Break allows you to settle into a hotel in Passau for 4 nights and enjoy daily rides along the riverbanks.
