Danube Impressions Bike and Boat

Cycle along the Danube River during the day, and sleep on a boat in the evenings--the perfect way to experience this region to the fullest. The route is gently downhill, mostly with a helpful tailwind, as you meander in the Donauschlinge ("Great Loop") and enjoy the gorgeous landscape of the legendary Wachau with its castles and fortresses.

Bike and boat along the Danube River from Passau to Vienna and back to Passau as you meander through the “Great Loop,” one of the river’s most picturesque locations.

Biking along the Danube River on a bike and boat tour is the perfect way to experience the region from the beautiful bike paths and along the riverway itself. Gently downhill, mostly with a helpful tailwind, you will experience the impressive river as it meanders in the Donauschlinge ("Great Loop") and enjoy the gorgeous landscape of the legendary Wachau with its castles and fortresses.

The tour heads to Vienna, rich with architecture, a firework of places of interests! Sights like St. Stephen's Cathedral, the Town Hall and the world's oldest ferris wheel (Riesenrad) are easy to reach on your bike. At the Naschmarkt (famous food market), a stroll will become a cultural and culinary adventure. You can also relax at any of the cozy coffee bars or at a typical Viennese wine tavern.

On the guided tour, you cycle in a small group guided by a local tour guide who's familiar with the region. Or you can venture out on your own with maps and instructions on the self-guided version.
