This cycle tour is not recommendable for travellers with mobility impairments.

[ettappen] =>

Day 1: Individual arrival in Donaueschingen
The Brigach and Breg Black Forest rivers join to form the Danube near the town, but even the Romans thought the source of the river was located in the park of the Fürstenberg castle. The castle built in the Belle Epoch style is a testament to the importance of the Fürstenberg family.

Day 2: Donaueschingen – Mühlheim/Fridingen (approx. 45/55 km)
The first stage of your today's bike tour leads you through the so-called „Baar“ landscape. Closed to Immendingen and Möhringen you will be able to witness a unique natural phenomenon: the Danube Sinkhole. Here the river disappears beneath the porous chalk rock for the majority of the year until it resurfaces 12 km further downstream in the "Aachtopf". You pass Möhringen and reach Tuttlingen. The main attraction is the Protestant church. The classical town hall and the many sculptures in the centre are also worth seeing. Through the valley you continue to Fridingen. There you will find the artists house "Scharf Eck", which was built on the former city walls and the famous viewpoint of "Knopfmacherfelsen". The Danube winds through the rocks of the Swabian Alps. Castles, forts and ruins are situated on the beautiful riverbanks and in the hills just beyond. You spend the night in Fridingen or Beuron.

Day 3: Mühlheim/Fridingen – Sigmaringen/Scheer (approx. 45 – 60 km)
The bike trail continues beside the Danube, past romantic mills and picturesque corners of the valley. Soon Wildenstein Castle comes into view and just a little bit later you pass Werenwag, the famous medieval musicians' castle. Via Hausen im Tal you continue to Sigmaringen. Here you can see one of Europe's largest private weapons collection. Stroll through the historical town centre or visit the local museum.

Day 4: Sigmaringen/Scheer – Obermarchtal/Ehingen (approx. 50 – 70 km)
Today's route starts out in the lovely forests and meadows of the open countryside of the Danube valley. Scheer was an ancient settlement of the Celts and Romans. Via Mengen, one of the five Habsburg towns by the upper Danube, you make your way to Hundersingen. Don't miss Heuneburg Museum with the fascinating exhibit about Celtic settling from 600 to 400 b.C. The climb up to the museum is rewarded by a splendid view over the valley. In the Middle Ages Riedlingen belonged to the Habsburg Dynasty. You bike along a part of the famous Upper Swabian Baroque Route. It winds through Upper Swabia and leads the interested traveller to many historical treasures. The old church of Zwiefalten Convent is known as one of the region's most beautiful churches. You spend the night in Obermarchtal or Surroundings.

Day 5: Obermarchtal/Ehingen – Blaubeuren – Ulm (approx. 65 km)
There are two options for the journey to Ulm. You can either continue beside the Danube on the familiar bike trail or take the highly recommended route along the rivers Ach and Blau via Blaubeuren. The Danube Bike Trail takes you to the towns Oberdischingen and Erbach. The Ach valley on the other hand is quite narrow and is flanked by hilly terrain on both sides. Via Schelkingen you continue to Blaubeuren with the impressive "Blautopf" (Blue Pot). Your final destination is Ulm on the border to Bavaria.

Day 6: Ulm – Lauingen/Dillingen (ca. 50/55 km)
After breakfast you leave Ulm on the well signposted Danube bike trail and pass the frontier between Baden-Wuerttemberg and Bavaria. The bike trail leads you via Weißingen to Leipheim, where the St. Veit Church, the Castle, the town walls and city towers are worth a visit. Later on the route takes you via Gundelfingen into the medieval ducal town Lauingen. Overnight stay in Lauingen or Dillingen.

Day 7: Lauingen/Dillingen – Donauwörth/Wörnitzstein (ca. 45/40 km)
Through the nature reserve Apfelwörth you cycle towards your destination, Donauwörth on the Romantic Road, which was highly demanded ever since. You spend the last night in Donauwörth.

Day 8: Individual departure
Of course you can always extend your bicycle tour along the Danube with extra nights in Donauwörth or other towns along the cycle route between Donaueschingen and Donauwörth. We are very pleased to arrange additional accommodation for you.

This cycle tour is not recommendable for travellers with mobility impairments.

Day 1: Individual arrival in Donaueschingen
The Brigach and Breg Black Forest rivers join to form the Danube near the town, but even the Romans thought the source of the river was located in the park of the Fürstenberg castle. The castle built in the Belle Epoch style is a testament to the importance of the Fürstenberg family.

Day 2: Donaueschingen – Mühlheim/Fridingen (approx. 45/55 km)
The first stage of your today's bike tour leads you through the so-called „Baar“ landscape. Closed to Immendingen and Möhringen you will be able to witness a unique natural phenomenon: the Danube Sinkhole. Here the river disappears beneath the porous chalk rock for the majority of the year until it resurfaces 12 km further downstream in the "Aachtopf". You pass Möhringen and reach Tuttlingen. The main attraction is the Protestant church. The classical town hall and the many sculptures in the centre are also worth seeing. Through the valley you continue to Fridingen. There you will find the artists house "Scharf Eck", which was built on the former city walls and the famous viewpoint of "Knopfmacherfelsen". The Danube winds through the rocks of the Swabian Alps. Castles, forts and ruins are situated on the beautiful riverbanks and in the hills just beyond. You spend the night in Fridingen or Beuron.

Day 3: Mühlheim/Fridingen – Sigmaringen/Scheer (approx. 45 – 60 km)
The bike trail continues beside the Danube, past romantic mills and picturesque corners of the valley. Soon Wildenstein Castle comes into view and just a little bit later you pass Werenwag, the famous medieval musicians' castle. Via Hausen im Tal you continue to Sigmaringen. Here you can see one of Europe's largest private weapons collection. Stroll through the historical town centre or visit the local museum.

Day 4: Sigmaringen/Scheer – Obermarchtal/Ehingen (approx. 50 – 70 km)
Today's route starts out in the lovely forests and meadows of the open countryside of the Danube valley. Scheer was an ancient settlement of the Celts and Romans. Via Mengen, one of the five Habsburg towns by the upper Danube, you make your way to Hundersingen. Don't miss Heuneburg Museum with the fascinating exhibit about Celtic settling from 600 to 400 b.C. The climb up to the museum is rewarded by a splendid view over the valley. In the Middle Ages Riedlingen belonged to the Habsburg Dynasty.

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. 

Day 8: Individual departure
After having experienced an unforgettable and varied bicycle tour from Vienna to Budapest, it is time to say goodbye. Would you rather prefer taking the bus from Budapest back to Vienna? We would love to help you plan your journey back home. However, if you would like to stay longer in Budapest – no problem – we gladly extend your bicycle tour and add some more nights in Budapest or Vienna.
