Our Passau to Vienna Cycling Break covers the most popular stretch of the Danube in just 4 cycling days on level, riverside cycle paths. Along the way you’ll see the Danube Loop at Schlögen, the city of Linz, the baroque town of Grein, the sublime wine villages of the Wachau Valley, the medieval town of Krems and of course the Imperial City of Vienna.
Created for capable cyclists, this 5 day itinerary follows the same route as our seven day Passau to Vienna Cycling Holiday but covers 80kms per day, as opposed to 48 on the longer version.
Danube Loop at Schlögen
You’ll follow a lovely, level, riverside cycle path past some incredible natural wonders as well as some charming medieval towns and villages as you make your way downstream.
Starting from Passau – the City of Three Rivers – you’ll take in the wide, sweeping Danube Loop at Schlögen, the serene peace and quiet of the Strudengau and the magnificent abbey at Melk.
The charming wine villages of the magical Wachau Valley will tempt you to stop and enjoy the hospitality of their many quaint wine taverns before pedaling on to the lovely old town of Krems.
Finally, you arrive in the Imperial City of Vienna, a fascinating, diverse city with a unique history and culture.
