The Danube Cycle Path

The Danube Cycle Path is among the most beautiful cycling tracks in Europe. Discover Austria’s provinces, the famous Wachau Valley and the capital city Vienna by bike.

The Danube Cycle Path is about 365 kilometres in length, running from the Bavarian city of Passau to the Slovakian capital Bratislava.

The stretch runs almost entirely on peddling paths directly by the scenic river. You can stop at Linz (Europe’s Cultural Capital in 2009), to discover modern art and architecture and taste Linz’ famous sweet dish the Linzer Torte.
The world heritage listed Wachau Valley with its castles, abbeys and vineyards is one of the most picturesque part of the Danube Cycle Path.
Combine the cycle tour with a visit of cultural sites such as Austria’s biggest Benedictine Abbey “Stift Melk” and the famous ruin in Dürnstein, where the English king Richard Lion Heart was imprisoned. After all stroll through the historic town of Krems before continuing the journey towards Vienna.
