The “Schlögener Donauschlinge” (Danube Loop), Melk Abbey and the Wachau are only a few of the cultural highlights which we will explore on our journey.

Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest – three glamorous cities along the Danube River, which line up among the Danube cycle path and serve as a perfect place for staying overnight and discovering places filled with history and culture in the course of an unforgettable bicycle tour. Look forward to varying river landscapes while cycling from Vienna to Budapest. 

You do not only pass Austria, but also Slovakia and Hungary and can discover many historical sites along the bicycle course: Vienna being the cultural centre of Austria, the castle of Eckartsau which, nowadays, is still surrounded by the splendour of the Habsburg monarchy. Moreover, there is the city of Bratislava and its fortress from which you can enjoy a far-reaching view over the Danube landscape. Another fantastic site is Esztergom, Hungary’s former capitol and Budapest, which has merged together from two cities – Buda and Pest.

This cycling trip is not recommendable for travellers with mobility impairments.

[ettappen] =>

Day 1: Individual arrival in Vienna
Welcome to Austria’s capitol. The city on the Danube is varied and thus there is something to discover for everybody: Imperialistic impressions in the baroque palaces of Schönbrunn and Belvedere, the finest Gothic at St. Stephen’s Cathedral and a mixture of marvellous impressions in the old university and modern ones in e.g. the Danube Tower or at “Time Travel Vienna”. Last but not least, more than 100 museums attract the visitors.

Day 2: Vienna – Region Bad Deutsch Altenburg (approx. 42 km)
Enchanted by Vienna’s cultural diversity, you leave the urban bustle and cycle downriver along the Danube River towards Budapest. Just behind the city boarders of Vienna, you reach the Danube wetlands national park. Here, you can perfectly rest and enjoy the fascinating and species-rich landscape. However, not only the national park is worth having a break in. Later on, the castles Orth and Eckartsau as well as the spa town of Deutsch-Altenburg offer you exciting history and splendid glamour.

Day 3: Region Bad Deutsch Altenburg – Bratislava (approx. 26 km)
The Danube cycle path winds along the majestic current of the Danube and through the Hainburger Mountains and the Little Carpathians. Today’s bike course has been selected short on purpose so that you can take your time for extensive sightseeing in the Slovakian capitol Bratislava. Visiting the medieval castle Devin and strolling through historical downtown should definitely be on your list of things to do and see.

Day 4: Bratislava – Györ (approx. 50 km + train ride Mosonmagyarovar – Györ)
On day 4 of your Danube travel from Vienna to Budapest, you will, once again, succumb to the charm of the Danube banks: Your cycle tour leads you through the area of the Rye Island, which is a river island and a paradise for fish and birds. Little islands are located dreamily in the labyrinth of the Danube arms and offer magnificent motives for souvenir photos. Your desired destination for today is Györ and will be reached after a short train ride. Not only are attractions like the castle Bischofsburg, the Basilica, the Napoleon House and Palais Esterházy worth seeing, the city by the mouth of three rivers also offers a bright landscape variety.

Day 5: Györ – Region Komarno (approx. 57 km)
The Danube cycle path leads you on smooth wavy service roads and side streets by the national stud “Bablona”, which is famous for its Arabian horse breed even far beyond boarders. Today, you have to accomplish the only steeper ascent during the bicycle tour between Vienna and Budapest. The divided city Kamarom awaits you as today’s stage finish offering you changing history under Roman, Celtic and royal influences. 

Day 6: Region Komarno – Dunakanyar (approx. 52 km)
Today, you will once more pass a country boarder as you continue your cycle tour along the Slovakian Danube banks. Looking very nicely, typical regional farm villages that are connected via causeways and low traffic side streets line up along the Danube cycle path. A perfect occasion for a cycle break on the way is the largest famous Roman military location in Slovakia: Fort Kelamantia ((Kastell Iža-Leányvár) is situated right by the Danube banks. Today’s destination is the bishop’s city Esztergom (also known as “Hungarian Rome”) whose basilica sits majestically enthroned and perfectly visible from even far distance over the city. Be impressed by the size of this cathedral and enjoy the stunning view down into the Danube valley.

Day 7: Dunakanyar – Budapest (approx. 62 km + boat tour)
Today, you continue your bicycle tour along the Danube and reach your travel destination Budapest after approx. 60 km bike course. Your tour leads you, inter alia, to the island Szentendre, which is part of the Duna-Ipoly national parks and thus is a paradise for nature lovers. Szentendre is approx. 40km long and divides the current and separates the narrow Danube west arm from the eastern main current. Starting at the eponymous town Szentendre located at the right side of the Danube banks and its museum of farming, you continue your travel via ship to Budapest. What a relaxing highlight during your unforgettable bicycle tour. Enjoy the spectacular view over the famous sights Budapest has to offer before you enter the fray and discover attractions as e.g. Buda Castle, Fisherman’s Bastion or chain bridge.
