Itinerary

We highly recommended that you arrive early in Vienna. This metropolis on the Danube has plenty to offer and it is worth staying there for longer. Enjoy a cup of coffee and the typical Viennese cake. the "Sachertorte“ in one of the numerous coffee houses. You could also treat yourself to a tour with a horse-drawn cab that they call "Fiaker“.

The first stage of your bike tour takes you through the national park 'Donau-Auen'. There you will see the diversity of the flora and fauna as well as the manifold types of landscape for yourself. You pass Orth castle and Eckertsau village and you then reach Bad Deutsch Altenburg. There you can make an excursion on the Roman bike trail (Römerweg) to Carnuntum. The archaeological park is regarded as one of the most significant archaeological sites in Austria. After Hainburg you reach the border with Slovakia and it's capital city, Bratislava taht is your next overnight stay.

You cycle a short distance in Slovak territory before you pass the Hungarian border in Rajká. Within the first few kilometers of your cycle trip in Hungary you will discover charming villages. The complete section is influenced by agriculture. Your route guides you through the so-called Szigetköz (a small Rye Island). This is characterized by numberless side arms of the Danube. The beautiful town Mosonmagyaróvár is also called „City of 17 bridges“ and ideally suited for a short break. On your further way you will pass Hédervár. The castle there is situated in the middle of a protected park. However, you should schedule a plenty of time for visiting Györ. The district capital offers many sights and a breathtaking historic center.

Soon you reach the Hungarian Böny. From there a route version guides you to Bábolna, a well cultivated town with a beautiful inner city. The local National Stud is known far beyond its borders. Racehorses are bred in the splendid inner courtyard. Afterwards the route takes you back to the Danube where you soon reach the divided town Komárom/Komárno. The route runs near riverbanks in the flat Danube valley. In the course of this you pass different villages and while cycling you can view the vineyards in the background. The sporty bikers can choose a route over Tata but there are some increases. This requires a basic level of fitness. Those interested in history should plan time for the Roman castle Kelemantia which is on the way. However the absolute highlight is your destination today: Esztergom (also known as „Hungarian Rome“). It´s basilica is the largest church of the country.

You cycle along the „Donauknie“ which is probably one of the most attractive sections of the Danube bike trail. The Royal Palace and the castle of Visegrád will delight you and the open air museum as well as the baroque old town of Szentendre invites you to stay. The crowning highlight is Budapest. After arriving there you can review all impressions of this wonderful bike trip during a walk through the city.

In the Hungarian capital city there is a lot to discover. If you are interested in spending some more time here, we would be happy to book extra nights for you. Our transfer from Budapest to Vienna is very comfortable and this can be arranged for an additional charge.

Tour character

You cycle on bike trails, paths alongside a dam and occasionally on relatively quiet side roads. Busy roads are only used for very short distances. You only cycle on rough paths for 3 short sections. Otherwise you will also be cycling on tarmac. The entire route is signed very well with just a few exceptions in the Slovakian part. Altogether the tour is relatively easy with a few hills at times.

Because of the longer stages you should have a decent level of stamina.
