The stretch runs almost entirely on dedicated bike paths right beside the scenic river. You can stop at Linz (European Capital of Culture in 2009), to discover modern art and architecture. The world heritage listed Wachau valley with its castles, abbeys and vineyards is one of the most picturesque parts of the Danube Cycle Path.
Combine the cycle tour with a visit of cultural sites such as Austria’s biggest Benedictine Abbey “Stift Melk” and the famous ruin in Dürnstein, where English king Richard the Lionheart was imprisoned. After a stroll through the historic town of Krems, continue the journey towards Vienna, Austria's enchanting capital full of cultural delights. From Vienna to the Slovak border you cross the Donau-Auen National Park. There are also great bike & boat cruise offers available, as well as the possibility to combine bike & train on many sections.
