Follow the green riverbanks of the Danube River from Passau to Vienna, in Austria. Flat terrain and traffic-free cycle paths make this an ideal trip for families and you’ll experience some of the Danube’s most beautiful scenery, including the wooded slopes of the spectacular Great Loop. As you cycle downstream, you’ll pass riverside cities and traditional towns embedded in the Alpine foothills.

The fairytale turrets of Burg Clam castle and the white walls of Greinburg Castle are an exciting halfway highlight and, towards the end of the tour, the palaces of Wachau have earned the area World Heritage status. Cycling into the musical city of Vienna and rewarding yourself with a decadent Viennese coffee and delicious pastry is a magnificent way to end this tour.
