Itinerary

Your arrival takes place in the beautiful baroque city Schärding. The city was established already 1,200 years before. Take enough time for a short stroll and discover the interesting history.

The first part you will follow the River Inn to Passau. Passau is also known as the city of three rivers, because the rivers Inn and Ilz confluence there into the river Danube. The latter one will escort you the rest of your journey up to Vienna. In Passau you will board a river boat and ship over Obernzell and Engelhartszell to the well-known Danube bend (Attention: The boat does not run in season 1 - during this period the total distance need to be done by bike). On the last part you will cycle through the so-called Eferdinger basin, passing Aschach to Feldkirchen. Local swimming lakes invite you there for a quick refreshing dip.

Today you will pass the Upper Austrian capital Linz and the historical town Enns. Further on you will soon reach Mitterkirchen. There you can visit a Celtic Village and learn about early rural structures and civilization.

Start your day with a visit of Maria Taferl with its magnificent pilgrimage church, which attracts many pilgrims every year. That will be followed with two absolute highlights: The amazing beauty of the Melk abbey, and the picturesque Wachau region, where you can enjoy the charming atmosphere of the region’s typical orchards and vineyards. You pass through the little wine towns of Spitz and Weißenkirchen, cycle past the Dürnstein castle ruin, and finish your journey in the 1,000-year old town of Krems. Maybe you are lucky and meet a local winemaker who can tell you a lot about his work inside the vineyards!.

From the 1,000-year-old town Krems you cycle over Traismauer and end your stage in Langenschönbichl. There you can enjoy the silence and culture of the rural region over again.

Soon you will reach the Roman town of Tulln. It is worth to visit the Egon-Schiele-museum there. The final kilometers of your bike tour are a relaxed trip to the Danube metropolis of Vienna. As soon as you arrive you can occupy your room and then enjoy all the amenities of the city for the rest of the day. Enjoy a cup of coffee and the typical Vienna cake „Sachertorte“ in one of the numerous coffee houses or treat yourself to a roundtrip with the horse-drawn cab „Fiaker“. Walk along Vienna’s famous shopping street (along Mariahilfer Straße), or visit the St Stephen’s Cathedral.
