Highlights

An amazing itinerary that winds along the beautiful blue Danube River. It starts in Passau, the Bavarian town at the confluence of three rivers, and touches three national capitals: Vienna, imperial and majestic; Bratislava, a small, bustling city in the heart of Europe; and Budapest, a bridge between East and West.

 

  • A ride on the Ferris wheel in Vienna's Prater for a breathtaking glimpse of the metropolis on the Danube
  • A glass of wine at the foot of Melk Abbey
  • Budapest's 128 hot springs

What awaits you

For the first section of the famous Danube Cycle Route you will ride on completely flat bike paths, and the signage is so precise that it would be difficult to get lost.

The continuation of the route, from Vienna to Budapest, is a bit more challenging. The Slovak and Hungarian part of the route is mainly on back roads where sometimes there is some traffic. There are also several ups and downs, but if you don't feel like cycling one day, staying on the boat and relaxing can be a great alternative!

Accommodation

Overnight accommodation is provided aboard a riverboat, a floating hotel ready to follow you during the biking stages and welcome you aboard in the evening. The atmosphere is comfortable and is designed down to the smallest detail to ensure that you have an unforgettable stay. At dinner, the chefs and crew treat you to a feast of flavors and aromas. The cabins have private bathrooms and air conditioning.

Ottima organizzazione, servizio a bordo e assistenza da parte dell'accompagnatore. Molto utili ed interessanti i briefing e il materiale informativo cartacea e l'app dei percorsi ben descritti. Solo una piccola osservazione relativa alla manutenzione delle bici, consigliabile un check prima di consegnare le bici (fanaletto davanti non funzionante) e rientrare in barca uscendo da Vienna non è stato piacevole.
