View Holiday Schedule

This self-guided cycling holiday along the Danube will take you through both Austria and Germany and is a cycling classic. An ideal way to see this beautiful region and it’s downstream all the way!
 
Starting in a deep valley with craggy outcroppings topped with the ruins of ancient castles, you’ll soon see the hills turn to the rolling vineyards of the Wachau region, dotted with characteristic medieval towns. As the river widens, the landscape alters. Flat pastures spread to the horizons and you’ll meander your way through farms and villages. It’s a scenic route, paved and mostly traffic-free, following an old tow path where teams of horses once pulled barges up this majestic river.
 
You'll end your cycling holiday in the renowned Austrian capital, Vienna, and with all the major sights accessible by bike it couldn’t be easier.
 
If you would prefer to take your time or would like another couple of days in this beautiful region we also offer a 10 day option. There is also the chance to shorten some of the day’s riding, by boarding one of the trains or boats catering for bicycles. We also have a family versions of this tour available that takes you from Linz to Vienna
 
Contact us with your preferred dates and and let Skedaddle show you the best way to enjoy a cycling holiday along the Danube.
