Holiday Information

This cycling holiday is a real classic that takes us along the peaceful Danube as we make our way through both Germany and Austria. Striking the perfect balance between beautiful countryside, fascinating historic monuments and charming towns, this downstream journey is the perfect way to experience an incredible region by bike.
 
We'll begin our journey in a deep valley with craggy outcroppings topped with the ruins of ancient castles, before seeing the hills turn into the rolling vineyards of the Wachau region, dotted with rustic medieval towns. As the river widens, the landscape alters as we cycle over flat pastures that spread to the horizons, meandering our way through farms and villages. This scenic route is paved and mostly traffic-free, allowing for a relaxed cycling holiday as we follow an old tow path where teams of horses once pulled barges up this majestic river.
 
This trip has been carefully crafted to allow you to experience all that the Danube has to offer, and we'll have plenty of opportunity to jump off our bikes and discover some of the region on foot, from awe-inspiring castleS to world-famous abbeys.
 
Our pedallin' will be rewarded as we end our journey in the characterful Austrian capital of Vienna, taking in unrivalled views of the city from its famous Ferris Wheel! It's the perfect finale to our biking extravaganza!
 
If you would prefer a self-guided holiday or like to cycle at your own pace, we also offer both this tour and a 10 day version as a self-guided option.
 
This cycling holiday along the Danube is crafted with Skedaddle sparkle, and we can't wait to have you along with us - please contact our expert team to organise your trip today!
