Passau - Budapest - Passau, MS Normandie

Along the Danube by bike and boat

The cycle tour along the Danube is a combined trip by bike and boat. The start of this wonderful journey is Passau. From there, after embarking in the evening, head towards Engelhartzell. What awaits you? Fascinating landscapes, picturesque cities and culinary highlights. Board the MS Normandie and enjoy an unforgettable journey along the Danube.

Details of the bike and boat trip

On the Danube Cycle Path, you ride happily on two wheels along the beautiful river landscape. Bratislava, Budapest and Vienna are the best-known metropolises that you can explore on your bike and boat trip: be it a long stroll through the Slovakian capital of Bratislava, a flirt with the imperial city of Vienna or a cultural trip through Budapest.

But that’s not all: nature and cuisine are the focus of the trip. You will particularly enjoy the magnificent castles and palaces as well as the vineyards of the Wachau! The culinary delights run like a thread through the tour. Let yourself be spoiled on board with a three-course menu in the evening or enjoy regional specialities of the country on your own excursions. Just lovely!

The highlights from Passau via Bratislava to Budapest and back

  • The Hungarian Danube Bend: Discover the history of Hungary on a cycle tour through the picturesque Danube Bend. In the Hungarian Wachau, on the way to Esztergom, the magnificent basilica stands out above the castle district. The culture lovers among you will be amazed!
  • Metropolis Vienna: The Hofburg, St. Stephen’s Cathedral, the Ringstresse with the State Opera and the town hall are important sights. If you prefer to take it easy, stroll through the city and enjoy the charm of Vienna. Indulgence tip: find a real Viennese café and take in the Austrian coffee house culture. You will love it!

Useful information about combined bike and boat tours

In total, you will travel for eight days on this bike and boat tour. The cycle paths run exclusively on the Danube Cycle Path and impress with their flat terrain. Relaxation and enjoyment are not forgotten! If you want to take a day off, you can make yourself comfortable on the MS Normandie. Tip: the sundeck is the ideal way to treat yourself to a healthy dose of vitamin D!

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.

Sehr kurzweilige und interessante Rad- und Schiffstour

Helmuth Kuhn DE | 04.06.2019
Es hat sich gelohnt!
Die MS Normandie war ein gutes Schiff, die Kabinen ausreichend groß, das Personal kompetent und sehr freundlich, die Betreuung durch den Reiseleiter Jahn ausgezeichnet! Der Radweg besonders in der Slowakei war nicht so wie man es an der Donau kennt, aber man kann ihn fahren. Schade war, dass ein Radausflug ich Wien extra zu bezahlen war, das stellt man sich bei einer Boat and Bike Tour etwas anders vor. Vor zwei Jahren am Rhein hatten wir sogar einen Ausflug in die Weinberge mit Verkostung inklusive, das kostete diesmal auch extra. Zur Begrüßung und zum Abschiedsabend wurde uns in der schriftlichen Ankündigung ein "Coktail" versprochen. In beiden Fällen erhielten wir einen lauwarmen Prosecco ;-( . Aber genug der Kritik und lieber noch ein Lob, das Abendessen war immer ein Genuß!

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.
