A hotel built into the walls of a 400-year old former shop and situated in the historical old town along the Danube cycle path. Check-in and you receive your travel documents. Handover of your rented bike takes place in our bike centre, individual test journey to your hotel with your hired bike. Example of hotel: Hotel Residenz**** in Passau
  • Day 2 - From Passau to Aschach/surroundings, approx. 50 km

    With the Danube boat, you reach Kasten, from where you cycle leisurely through the romantic Upper Danube Valley via the Monastery Engelszell and the Schlögener Schlinge to Aschach. You stay overnight at Hotel Faustschlössl overlooking the river. The castle established originally more than 500 years ago on behest of the emperor. Example of hotel: Hotel Faustschlössl*** in Feldkirchen
  • Day 3 - From Aschach/surroundings to Linz, approx. 30 km

    Past the lakes of Feldkirchen you cycle along Danube's north side to Linz, the European City of Culture 2009. Today you stay overnight in the top-modern hotel on the cathedral square of the magnificent Marien Cathedral. Example of hotel: Hotel am Domplatz**** in Linz
  • Day 4 - From Linz to Bad Kreuzen, approx. 60 km

    Beautiful surrounding with fruitful meadows with apple and pear trees lining the cycle path from Linz to the region Strudengau. The fruits are mostly used for fruit juice production and so name giving for the whole region. Example of hotel: Schatz.Kammer in the fortress Kreuzen
  • Day 5 - From Bad Kreuzen to Melk, approx. 50 km

    The Danube made a narrow riverbed by granite rock on its way through the Strudengau. You cycle towards the lovely Wachau Valley. The magnificent Abbey of Melk also called the gate of the Wachau Valley welcomes you sitting high enthroned over the Danube. Example of hotel: Hotel Post**** in Melk
  • Day 6 - From Melk to Dürnstein, approx. 30 km

    Your home for tonight is the beautiful Castle Dürnstein a nearly 400-year old building located in the middle of the picturesque Dürnstein overlooking majestically the river. By the way – Richard Löwenherz stayed during his captivity in Castle Dürnstein absolutely less in royal style than you on your cycle vacation in Austria. Example of hotel: Schloss Dürnstein***** in Dürnstein
  • Day 7 - From Dürnstein to Vienna, approx. 50 km

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 30 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.
