A 10 night cycling adventure, following the mighty Danube River from Regensburg in Bavaria, past the Danube Loop and Wachau Valley all the way to Vienna in Austria. Easy riverside cycling complemented by quiet valleys, fertile plains, terraced vineyards and historic riverside towns.
This route extends the classic Passau to Vienna cycling itinerary to include the young Danube as it makes its way through Lower Bavaria to the Austrian border. Starting from the medieval town of Regensburg you’ll ride on level, riverside cycle paths and quiet lanes eastwards. The scenery is ever changing, from steep wooded valleys to open fertile plains.
Cycling the Danube at Grein
Each day brings new highlights and there is much to see but the stand-out sights include; Passau, located at the confluence of the Danube, Inn and Ilz Rivers, the natural beauty of the Danube Loop, the old world appeal of the Wachau Valley wine villages and of course the historic and exciting city of Vienna. Each evening you’ll stop in wonderful towns and villages along the route that owe their existence and fortune to the mighty river.
This is a leisurely cycling holiday, mostly on level, riverside cycle paths and well within the capabilities of any reasonably fit adult.
