traveller reviews

  • We loved this ride! The accommodation experiences were sensational at some places, with Passau, Durnstein (in the old castle) and Stifft Ardagger (in a converted monastery) being stand out for the reason that their in house chefs produced degustation dinners from local produce with matching local wines and schnapps and the like. A perfect way to end the long day on the bike The ride was really enjoyable and incredibly beautiful. It was fun to be able to ride on both sides of the Danube (often crossing the river over the hydro power stations and lochs for the river cruise boats. The bikes were a dream and pick up and drop off in Vienna was very easy. I'm absolutely hooked in cycling in Europe G. Lind Yarraville, Australia
Follow the winding route of the Danube and discover the lively history of one of Europe's most important rivers. Cycle past Austrian castles, Benedictine monasteries and ancestral vineyards en route to Vienna. From Germany, follow the Danube eastward into Austria, across the fertile plains of the Wachau Valley, where vineyards climb the slopes to imposing medieval monasteries perched atop hills between Melk and Krems. Wind past castle ruins and apricot orchards before reaching the capital of Austria, where you can take in a performance of the "Blue Danube" waltz, the melody that evokes Vienna the world over. At night stay in a range of 4-5 star hotels from modern charm to historic properties specially handpicked for their location and character.
