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!
