Passau - Vienna - Budapest
Danube Waltz Bike and Boat Passau - Budapest - Passau

Tour Description: Self-guided

(View Guided )

This journey takes you to the highlights along Europe's second largest river – the Danube: The impressive spectacle of nature of the Schlögener Donauschlinge ("Great Loop"), the fascinating landscape of the Wachau with its vineyards, castles and palaces, the untouched alluvial forests of the Danube National Park, as well as the picturesque Hungarian Danube bend alternating with thriving metropolises such as Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest.

The wide stream of the Danube flows like a silver belt through Budapest, separating the hilly Buda and the flat Pest. The important cupola of the basilica in Esztergom salutes from the distance. At the foot of the Carpathian Mountains, the Slovak capitol Bratislava invites with its charming Old Town to a vast stroll. What about a small flirt with Vienna, City of Waltz? A firework of sightseeing, small dreamy coffee bars and cozy wine taverns are expecting you.

You cycle in a small group guided by a local tour guide who's familiar with the region. Taste some Austrian delicacies: at an Upper Austrian cider tavern you'll try sweet and bitter cider; at a wine tavern in the world-famous Wachau region you savor a small variety of regional wine specialities. You experience the Slovakian capital Bratislava on an excursion train. During a guided tour by bike, you'll pass by numerous of the sights of Vienna – the city of Waltz. A visit to the basilica of Esztergom – Hungary's largest church – also an unforgettable experience.
