Individual arrival in Passau and check-in at the hotel. Individual tour of Passau's old town (e.g. St. Stephen's Cathedral, Three Rivers Corner, Veste Oberhaus Castle). We recommend the three rivers boat tour - a comfortable city tour from the water.
Passau - Linz, about 90 km
Starting in Passau you cycle via Obernzell to Engelhartszell, where the only Trappist monastery in Austria is worth seeing. Along the banks of the Danube it goes through the dynamic, impressive Schlögener Donauschlinge via Aschbach and Ottensheim to Linz. The provincial capital of Upper Austria impresses with numerous sights.
Linz - Enns - Grein - Ybbs, approx. 80 km
We continue along the Danube Cycle Path to Enns, the oldest town in Austria. You reach Mauthausen by ferry and soon pass Dronach Castle near Grein. Cycling through the beautiful Strudengau you finally reach your destination for the day, Ybbs.
Ybbs - Wachau - Krems, approx. 70 km
From Ybbs-Persenbeug you continue to Melk, which is dominated by a magnificent Benedictine monastery. The UNESCO World Heritage Site Wachau, one of the most beautiful river landscapes in the world, begins in Melk. Passing through the well-known wine-growing towns of Spitz, Weißenkirchen and the fairytale town of Dürnstein, you can reach Krems, which boasts a medieval old town.
Krems - Vienna, approx. 80 km
The Danube cycle path continues through the Tulln Basin to the Roman and flower town of Tulln, past Klosterneuburg and the imposing monastery to the center of Vienna.
