The criteria for a quality cycle path
Imagine this: you cycle 260km past apricots, wine, memorable Roman towers, imposing castles and idyllic gardens. In between you take a short break in a cosy tavern. Every few metres you will find helpful signs that show you the distances. The Danube Cycle Path – which we just described – is a quality cycle path. But what makes it so?
Criteria for a quality cycle path:
- Few confusing parts and bottlenecks
- Priority for cyclists on the path
- Wide lanes, which also allow for overtaking
- Cyclist-friendly businesses along the route
- Optimal road surface
- Adequate lighting
- Path off the road
The Danube Cycle Path was awarded four stars for excellence by the ADFC.
The star among the cycle routes: The Danube Cycle Path
The route runs from Passau or Schärding to Vienna as you follow the beautiful blue Danube. You travel through the legendary Nibelungengau, where many a powerful king and emperor made his forays. On your bike tour you will get to know the historical significance of this time-honoured trade route. The cycle tour from Eurobike offers you two entry points: either in Passau or Schärding am Inn. Culture and enjoyment are not lacking in either.
Set off on one of the most beautiful quality cycle paths in Europe – and enjoy the comfort and safety of the certified path!
A jewel in Germany: the Main Cycle Path
The Main Cycle Path was not only the first cycle route to be awarded five starts. This path also guarantees the highest quality and offers cyclists great enjoyment. The top signage, paved roads and separate cycle paths along the river make this path a quality route. In addition, it is largely car-free, which makes it an ideal route for families.
From Kulmbach to Würzburg you will always cycle along the Main. You can look forward to historical highlights such as the thousand-year-old city of Bamberg or the wine town of Volkach.
And best of all, wine and beer as well as delicious regional specialities accompany you throughout the journey. Spend wonderful days on the Main Cycle Path and one thing is certain: you won’t want to go home in a hurry!
