A day excursion of biking and wine tasting in Austria’s most beautiful valley!

The Wachau Valley—Austria’s most famous wine region along the Danube River—is just an hour away from Vienna. On our day trip from Vienna, we catch the train to Krems and then start our bike ride on flat paths surrounded by terraced vineyards. After lunch, we spend the afternoon learning about Austria’s wine and history while meeting new friends. Along the way we visit charming Austrian villages before arriving back in Krems and returning to Vienna by train at the end of the day.  It’s a day you will remember long after your travels end.

Additional Information

  • THE BIKE RIDE
  • This guided bike tour is about 25 kilometers long and starts from Krems. It is a very flat ride on mostly designated bike paths, however there are a few hills consisting of small inclines. If you have children, we can organise childrens' bikes or tag-a-longs, however we suggest you contact us if you are concerned that your child may have problems completing the ride depending on their age and ability. We do have stops throughout the tour so you are not riding for hours straight. The longest we bike without a stop is 25 minutes at a time (depending on the direction of the wind). Join us for a fun and informative ride you’ll be glad you decided to take.
  • WEATHER
  • We provide rain gear – which can often be necessary in Austria. (A note on the weather, if you come to town and it’s raining, you have two choices as we see it; either you sit in your hotel room and don’t see anything, or you put a jacket on and come join us on the tour! Nobody has drowned yet! (but some have gone swimming).
  • TRAVELLING WITH CHILDREN
  • Child seats and kids tag-a-long bikes also available on request, please inform us when you book
