Skill Level

The Danube Cycle Path is rated as easy. The path is flat, almost always, directly along the riverbank and very well marked throughout, making it very suitable for families, beginners, or regular cyclists looking to combine easy riding with wonderful scenery.

Day 8: Individual departure

Day 1: Schärding/Passau
Individual arrival to the pretty baroque town Schärding am Inn or to the three-river-city Passau. Please specify your desired arrival place with your booking! If you book your tour beginning in Schärding, you will have the longer distance.

Day 2: Upper Danube Valley, 19 - 36 mi. (30 - 58 km)
From Schärding you cycle along the Inn cycle to Passau, where you can visit the cathedral with the largest church organ in the world. Further east you reach the next highlight, the abbey of Engelszell, Austria's only Trappist monastery. If you would like to shorten your cycling distance today, you can cover part of the distance by ship (mid-April till early October). Just ask us for details.

Day 3: Ottensheim/LInz, 31 - 41 mi. (50 - 65 km) 
Today’s first highlight is the Danube Loop of Schlögen or Schlögener Donauschlinge where the granite forces the river into an extremely tight loop. In Aschach, the valley widens and you cycle through the fertile basin of Eferding. The baroque Monastery of Wilhering is the perfect place to rest before you reach the cultural city of Linz.

Overnight in Linz or if you book Category C accommodations, overnight could be in Ottensheim.

Day 4: Ardagger/Grein, 31 - 41 mi. (50 - 65 km)
As you leave Linz, you cycle through a rural landscape.  In Mauthausen, the concentration camp memorial testifies to a dark chapter in history. In the mariner town of Grein, the Greinburg Castle, perched on its hilltop, is a highlight, as well as  oldest city theater in Austria and the Maritime Museum.

Overnight accommodation in Ardagger/Grein region. Category C accommodations can also be in  Wallsee.

Day 5: Wachau, 31 - 42 mi. (50 - 68 km)
Through romantic Strudengau,  you cycle to the ancient Roman town of Ybbs, where the undulating landscape of the Nibelungengau begins. From a distance, you can see the pilgrimage church of Maria Taferl which towers over the Danube valley. In Melk, the Benedictine Abbey is a highlight and of course the entire Wachau Region, as well.

Accommodation in the region between Maria Taferl and Spitz.

Day 6: Traismauer/Tulln region, 34 - 48 mi. (54 - 76 km)
Today you experience the most beautiful part of your journey, the picturesque Wachau. Pedaling through emerald vineyards and lush orchards, you discover Dürnstein. You  can shorten this cycling stage by ship through the Wachau (approx. mid-April till mid-October). Worth seeing is the historic center of Krems with its arcaded courtyards and baroque town houses. The day's destination is Traismauer/Tulln. There is also the possibility to overnight in Krems.

Day 7: Vienna, 23 - 40 mi. (36 - 64 km)
Near Vienna, the valley narrows again and leads through Klosterneuburg and into the region of Vienna, famous for its café culture and its many sights. May we suggest the optional Vienna Package as well as an optional guided city tour by bike?
