Ø km per day

Back to nature on the bike is the motto of this tour. But then back to the hotel? Not on this trip! From Passau to Vienna, you cycle along the Danube and always spend the nights of your family cycling vacation on a farm. The farmers are still active, so you will encounter all kinds of animals, but have also discovered the joy of this type of accommodation. Get up in the morning to enjoy freshly baked bread and try homemade jam and handmade cheese, which you certainly won't find in the supermarket. The Danube is always at the heart of your daily cycle stages. At the end, you will reach the capital of Austria and go home with the feeling that you have experienced something very special and out of the ordinary.

Day 1: Individual arrival in Passau

Three rivers from three directions meet in Passau: the Danube, Inn and Ilz. But this unique spectacle is not the only reason you should arrive early for your family cycling vacation along the Austrian Danube. Discover the baroque old town with St. Stephen's Cathedral at its center. The view of the city from the fortress is unique.

Day 2: Passau – Feldkirchen an der Donau, approx. 55 km + boat trip

In the Three river city of Passau, you now meet the Danube, which you will follow all the way until you reach the Austrian capital of Vienna. Shortly before Schlögen, you will pass through the Danube Loop, an incomparable natural spectacle. You now comfortably follow the Danube Cycle Route to Feldkirchen an der Donau

Day 3: Feldkirchen – Mitterkirchen, approx. 55 km + train ride

After breakfast, you first cycle to Ottensheim, where you change to the train and take a leisurely ride to Linz. The largest city in the region offers many sights. The best way to get an overview is to take a short tour of the city. Those with a sweet tooth will of course be looking for a slice of genuine Linzer Torte. Back on the bike, you soon reach the small municipality of Mauthausen in Machland. The long history of the region is best viewed in the Celtic Museum. You only have a few more kilometers to cycle to your destination for the day, Mitterkirchen.

Day 4: Mitterkirchen – Hengstberg, approx. 35 km

While the landscape has been wide and open up to this point, this picture changes from Grein onwards. Here you are at the entrance to Strudengau region. The Danube makes its way through several faults here, which is why numerous rapids were to be expected in this section in earlier times. Since the river has been used to generate electricity, however, its course has calmed down a little.

Day 5: Hengstberg – Aggstein, approx. 50 km

Melk Abbey is considered the gateway to Wachau region. The famous wine region offers numerous specialties for body and soul and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000. Many winegrowers offer wine tastings. We recommend enjoying a dry Riesling.


Aggstein Castle

Day 6: Aggstein – Krems, approx. 30 km

Today you follow the Danube through the second part of the Wachau. Due to the fertile soil and the Danube, the Wachau was fought over for centuries. You can discover a number of castle ruins as evidence of this history. These include the Hinterhaus ruins near Spitz and Dürnstein Castle, where, according to legend, Richard the Lionheart was imprisoned. In addition to wine, Wachau region is famous for growing apricots.

Day 7: Krems – Tulln – Vienna, approx. 40 km + train ride

Your last stage begins with a train ride to Tulln. Here you get on your bike for the last time on your family cycling vacation and take a leisurely ride to Vienna. One afternoon is certainly not enough to get to know Austria's capital city in depth, but there should be just enough time for a walk in the Prater public park or a visit to a café.
