Danube Bike Trail - Passau - Vienna - Budapest

THE DANUBE TRAIL
The Danube Valley tours offer easy cycling along mostly flat and well-marked bike paths. It is a great choice for a more active and adventurous holiday or those on a budget. The famous routes along the Danube include Passau to Vienna, and Vienna to Budapest.

The tour passes through many picturesque towns and villages and across lush farmland. There are many places to stop for a romantic picnic along the banks of the Danube River or an opportunity to indulge in local cuisine at one of many quaint inns. The bike paths are primarily paved and traffic-free, following an old horse trail once used to tow barges upstream. Along the majestic river, you will pass by historic castles, cozy villages and sprawling vineyards.

Passau - Vienna 335 km (approx. 210 miles)
Vienna - Budapest 340 km (approx. 213 miles)
