Passau - Budapest - Passau, MS Normandie

Hightlights of the Danube.

By bike and boat along the river Danube – a really special experience, because your “floating hotel” is accompanying you at all times!

The impressive Danube loop, the fascinating landscape of the Wachau region with its wine terraces, fortresses and palaces, the untouched forests of national park Donauauen and the picturesque Hungarian Danube bend contrast well with the pulsating cities like Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest.

The broad river runs like a silver thread through Budapest and divides the city into hilly Buda and flat Pest. In Esztergom the imposing dome of the basilica greets you from afar. Bratislava, formerly known as Pressburg, the Slovakian capital city at the feet of the Carpathians is inviting for a large stroll through the bewitching old city. Do you want to flirt with Vienna, the city of Waltz? A large variety of places of interest, small, dreamy coffee shops and comfortable wine taverns are awaiting you.

Itinerary

Boat ride: Passau – Engelhartszell
Individual arrival to Passau. Embarkation is at around 4pm. In the evening, you cruise to Engelhartszell. Enjoy your evening aboard.

Cycling: Engelhartszell – Brandstatt | Boat: Brandstatt – Bratislava
You start today's cycle tour from Engelhartszell where there is the only Trappist monastery in Austria and you cycle along the romantic river landscape of the Danube loop, which is one of the most beautiful sections of the river. In charming Brandstatt, you can get back aboard the boat again. In the night, you cruise to Bratislava where you will arrive at about midday.

Boat: Bratislava – Budapest (at night)
The cycle ride goes from Bratislava via Hainburg to Hof castle with its gorgeous terrace garden and via Devin back to Bratislava. Bratislava, Slovakia's capital, can be experienced during a vespertine city tour through hidden alleys and squares. In the night, you cruise to Budapest.

Cycling: Round trip Szentendre | Boat: Budapest – Visgrad (at night)
In the early morning, you can enjoy a panoramic view of the Danube's gorgeous landscape from the sun deck. The gateway to Budapest is overwhelming, as many of the famous tourist features are situated directly next to the river bank. In the afternoon you can explore the city on a city tour by coach and by foot (optional). Nearby, you find the Margaretheninsel which is outstandingly qualified for a small bike tour or the charming town of Szentendre with Mediterranean atmosphere and lively art life. In the evening you can enjoy Budapest by night with folklore program (opt.) In the night, you cruise to to Visegrad.

Bike: Visegrad – Esztergom | Boat: Esztergom – Vienna (at night)
Today there is a morning cruise through the picturesque, slightly hilly landscape of the Danube bend – also known as Hungarian Wachau – to Esztergom. Here you have two options: the longer route includes a detour to Szentendre Island and the baroque city Vác. The short route brings you directly to Esztergom where there is a precious basilica. In the night, you cruise to Vienna.

Boat:  Vienna/Nussdorf – Wachau (at night)
Make sure you visit the best sites in Vienna like St. Stephens cathedral and the Hofburg. You can take a city tour by bike or by coach/foot (optional, not included). The gorgeous boulevard "Ringstraβe" with the Burgtheater, the State Opera House and the town hall all take you back to the past. The evening ends impressively with a Waltz and Operetta concert (optional, not included). In the nigh, you cruise to Rossatz or Dürnstein (Wachau).

Cycling: Wachau/Rossatz – Melk – Pöchlarn | Boat: Pöchlarn – Passau (at night)
Your last day's cycle tour is a special highlight! Amidst small dreamy villages, apricot trees, vineyards, castles, monasteries and ruins, this gentle hilly landscape enchants everybody. A powerful ruin looms above the small Baroque town of Dürnstein, while the blue tower of the monastery church is a landmark of Wachau. In Spitz (possibility for a wine-tasting – optional) you will find comfy wine taverns right along the bike path. You owe it to yourself to take a break! You’ll board again in the small village Pöchlarn. After the farewell gala dinner, you start “sailing” back to Passau.

You arrive in Passau relaxed and rested around 10am. Disembarkation around 10.30am. Individual trip home. We recommend to book any travel connections from noon onwards.

Jeder Zeit wieder
Die Reise war sehr gut organisiert und kann man nur empfehlen. Nach einer Radtour am Tag und sehr sehenswerter Landschaft konnten wir an Bord der Arkona entspannen. Unsere Reiseleiterin Regine hatte viele Infos und Tipps bereit. Die Crew war sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich. Das Essen war sehr abwechslungsreich und gut. Hatten eigene Räder mit.

Eine rundum empfehlenswerte Reise
Gut geeignet für Freizeitradler, da die Etappen angenehm flach und auch gut ausgeschildert sind. Bei herrlichen Wetter machte es doppelt Spass durch diese schöne Landschaft und die schönen Städte zu radeln. Das gute Essen und der Service, vor allem die Freundlichkeit des gesamten Teams auf den Schiff rundeten die Reise zu einer erholsamen Aktivwoche ab. Herzlichen Dank auch an das Eurobike Team für den Bring-und Abhol-Service. Wir werden euch weiter empfehlen.

Sehr schöne Schiffsreise in intessante Städte in Kombination mit sportlicher Betätigung
Die Schiffs-/Radreise von Passau über Bratislava, Budapest, Wien und wieder zurück ist sehr empfehlenswert. Die Radstrecken sind relativ einfach (von ein paar kleinen Steigungen abgesehen), die Städte wunderschön und interessant. Der Service und das Essen auf dem Schiff sind sehr gut.
