Experience the road of emperors and kings by bike

"Nothing compares to the simple joy of riding a bike."
(John F. Kennedy)

Especially the slow travel, the breathing in of the forest air, the standing still and marveling at any time, the straining and being proud of the path you have covered, the feeling of the wind in your hair ... all this makes a bike tour an experience for all senses. Along the Danube, you will also enjoy the pleasures of our many hosts and the magnificent views of the Danube valley, the great European river, and the glimpses and glimpses of the region's great past and future.

Cycling from Vienna to Budapest

From Vienna to Budapest, you cycle through the former heartland of the Danube monarchy. The 300 km long section of the Danube Cycle Path is much quieter and more idyllic in summer than the classic Danube cycle tour from Passau to Vienna, but also a little more adventurous. The Danube Cycle Path in Slovakia and Hungary is not yet as well developed and signposted as in Germany or Austria. This section therefore requires a little more planning and is only suitable for families with children to a limited extent. However, the scenery and culture along the Danube Cycle Path are well worth preparing for this cycle tour!

The route of the Eurovelo 6 European cycle route from Vienna is described here.

Various tour operators offer the trips organized and give a good overview of the route:
