The beautiful Engelszell Monastery, Austria's only Trappist cloister offers a pure rococo-church and the monks are experts in producing delicious liqueurs, which you should taste. Tip in Engelhartszell: The fluffy “Kaiserschmarren with Zwetschkenröster” (sugared pancake with raisins and hot plum mixture) – Gasthof Zum Goldenen Schiff. Amidst the “Schlögener Schlinge”, we recommend walk (approx. 40 min.) up to the viewpoint Schlögen, and enjoy the magnificent view across the impressive Danube meander – you will be enchanted!

    Shortly after Linz, concealed in the hilltops of the pre-alpine country, there is the splendid Augustinian Chorherr Monastery St. Florian, one of the largest baroque cloisters of Austria. The Monastery was an effect site of the composer Anton Bruckner whose grave is directly under the big organ in the basilica. 12 magnificently equipped imperial rooms in which empress Maria Theresia held once audience were available for the high visit of emperor and empress. During a guided tour of the monastery enjoy the atmosphere and splendour of the former days. A little bit further downstream the small town of Grein in the Strudengau region awaits you. This Danube segment was feared on grounds of the cliffs by the skippers. Even Emperor Franz Joseph and Sisi had to change the ship during the bridal journey as the imperial yacht leaked.

OÖ Touristik GmbH

In 1990 the OÖ Touristik performed a pioneering work on the sector of organised cycle holidays: the first bookable cycle tour along the Danube including luggage transfer. Already a year later we offered the first group tours. Over the years the offers of the cycle holidays has expanded throughout Europe and are as popular as ever. During the last 25 years we have expanded the portfolio on mountain bike tours, cycle holidays by bike and boat, group tours and hiking holidays as well as winter and wellness holidays. The organisation and handling of international congresses and events meanwhile adds to the successful enterprise sections.
