The Hungarian Danube Cycle Path, or rather, the cycle route that weaves in and out of Austria, Slovakia and Hungary, takes you through Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest – three European cities that count as some of the most beautiful in the world. You will pass beautifully kept farming villages and pretty towns stuffed with history to follow the strong current of the River Danube, also passing the Au forest, protected along much of the route. Two days of the route therefore don't take you along the banks of the Danube, but through the charming countryside beyond. This Bike Trip from Vienna to Budapest, is an easy cycle even for those who are not used to cycling.

Day 1: Individual arrival in Vienna

Take the opportunity today to visit the Danube metropolis. Visit Schönbrunn Castle, the Imperial Spanish Riding School, the Ferris Wheel with great views over the city or the cathedral of Stephansdom. Whether you take a horse and carriage ride, a visit to a café or an evening visit to a wine-bar: start your holiday off with a taste of Vienna. Booked rental bikes will be available at the hotel.

Day 2: Vienna – Bad Deutsch-Altenburg / Hainburg, approx. 50 km

The Danube cycle path leads you out of the city and through pristine river valley forests. In Orth you can visit one of the largest Renaissance castles in Austria. The route then continues on to today´s destination, where in you shouldn´t miss a look at the Roman history in the archaeological park in Petronell-Carnuntum.

Day 3: Bad Deutsch-Altenburg – Bratislava, approx. 35 km

The day begins with a trip to the archaeological park of Carnuntum. Significant buildings from a Roman town have been uniquely reconstructed here. Next, your tour takes you back to Hainburg and just a short while later you will cross the Slovakian border. The capital town of Bratislava is influenced by the castle here of the same name. Wandering through the old town, lovers of drinking chocolate should definitely go to Cokoladovna Cafe.

Day 4: Bratislava – Győr, approx. 45 km + train trip

In Rajká cross the border to Hungary to then cycle over Little Rye Island. An expansive area of wetland and many Danube side streams characterise this section of the route. In the village of Mosonmagyaróvár (Town of the 17 Bridges) you alight the train to travel the last section of the route. In Györ bring the day to a pleasant close in any of the many beer gardens.

Day 5: Győr – Komárom, approx. 55 km

Today you leave the flat Little Hungarian Plain to head for the small, gentle hills of Transdanubia. Husbandry is practiced a great deal here so you're bound to see some of the famous Arabian horses.  The national stud farm is not far. Cycling through the walnut avenues is beautiful. Your destination today is Komaróm. Here, the Danube divides the Hungarian and Slovakian parts of the town, which used to be a single entity.

Day 6: Komáron – Visegrád, approx. 55 km + boat / train trip

Keeping close to the river you cycle through the flat Danube valley today. Little towns and villages and green vineyards line the cycle path. The more athletic can try the route via the town of Tata, which includes a number of hills. People interested in history should take the time to visit the Roman Fort of Kelemantia. Esztergom and its classicist basilica is an absolute highlight. Here you take the boat or train to Visegrád.

Day 7: Visegrád – Budapest, approx. 55 km

The kings palace and Visegrád Castle are a picturesque backdrop as you start today's tour. In the artists' town of Szentendre it is worth visiting the open air museum there or exploring the Baroque old town. Through the Danube Knee, which is probably the most beautiful part of the Danube, you head on towards Budapest. Allow the evening to come to a pleasant end with thoughts of all you have experienced on your tour.

Day 8: Budapest and individual return journey home

Take advantage of the day to sightsee in the busy Danube metropolis. The Danube flows through the city like a silver thread and separates the two sections of the city; Buda and Pest. Although the city in its modern form is only 100 years old, visitors can feel the remnants of the style and glamour of the monarchy throughout the city. We would also be more than happy to extend your Bike Trip from Vienna to Budapest.
