The classic Danube cycle route. Cycle along what many consider to be the most beautiful stretch of the Danube river as it wends it’s way through Upper and Lower Austria along beautiful, fertile valleys, past charming medieval villages to the elegant city of Vienna.
The original, and still one of the most popular long distance leisure rides in Europe, the Danube cycle path is an easy, mostly traffic-free route along level paths close to the mighty river. Starting from Passau on the German/Austrian border, you follow the river downstream past the majestic Danube Loop, the medieval City of Linz and through the stunning Wachau Valley.
The above video above was shot in July 2018 and depicts the sights and scenes along the route.
Along the way you can stop to explore charming riverside villages such as Grein, Spitz, Weißenkirchen and Dürnstein. At times you will cycle through open plains and meadows while other stretches lead you through steep-sided valleys lined with cascading vineyard terraces. At the end of the journey, elegant Vienna awaits to enthrall and fascinate.
Easy cycling on traffic free cycle paths.
