Danube Cycle Adventure for Families

This flat stretch of the Danube which is free of traffic and packed full of attractions, is an ideal introduction to cycle touring for all of the family. There is plenty of variety including a donkey adventure, boat rides on the Danube, historic sites such as the Melk Monastery and beautiful landscapes that will inspire children and adults alike. The path is completely paved and follows the river for most of the itinerary. The picturesque riverside region of the Wachau Valley leads you to the town of Spitz. From there you can visit Melk by boat, have some fun at the donkey farm and explore the surrounds. On arrival in Vienna there is a world of music and food for all to embrace.

traveller reviews

This is a brilliant trip. Plenty of time to cycle from place to place each day. Wonderful scenery. Instructions (pre-trip and during trip) were very worthwhile. Do this trip again? Yes, definitely and further along the Danube.
