Gently downhill, you will cycle along lush green river banks, through small, dreamy villages in the impressive Danube landscapes. You will discover the breathtaking natural wonder of the “Great Loop” (a swift 180º turn!) and immerse yourself in legendary Wachau with its vineyard terraces and enchanted castles and monasteries. Then Vienna – an abundance of sights! A city, hardly to describe – you have to see and feel it! Sights like St. Stephen’s Cathedral and the city hall are easy to reach during a wonderful sightseeing tour by bike. A stroll through the Naschmarkt (famous food market) is a wonderful cultural and culinary adventure. You can also relax at any of the cosy coffee houses or at a typical traditional Viennese wine tavern in the suburbs. The highlights of the tour: Passau, the City of 3 rivers, the Schloegen Danube Loop, the World Heritage Site Wachau, Upper Austria’s capital Linz, the cosmopolitan city Vienna with a plethora of sights.

Tour details

Day
Route

Arrival in the "Three River City". Passau attracts many with the world's greatest church organ at the Stephansdom and its charming Old Town. Embarkation will be around 4:00 pm, departure around 7 pm. Enjoy your first dinner on board and an evening sail to Engelhartszell.

The day starts in Engelhartszell (the only Trappist monastery in Austria), where we head towards the "Great Loop" - one of the most beautiful and original sectors of the Danube. Your cycling will encounter small villages and cosy must-see taverns. For a change take the little ferry boat through the romantic Schlögener loop, where the river makes a very abrupt 180-degree turn (approx. € 6.- per pers.). Shipping from Brandstatt to Linz. Tip: discover Linz, the capital of upper Austria while riding on the bright yellow City-Express.

Shipping to Mauthausen. You have the possibility to visit the memorial-place KZ-Mauthausen. The Celtic town Mitterkirchen gives you an insight of the past. The route continues through the fertile area of the Machland region. The destination of the day's stage is the charming town of Grein. Also called “the pearl of the Strudengau” due to its idyllic location. Worth a visit in Grein: the impressive Castle of Greinburg.

Today's stage is marked by a diverse landscape. At the beginning, there is the Strudengau – a narrow point of the Danube which used to be notorious amongst skippers. The valley expands from Persenbeug and the bike tour leads you further to Melk with its gorgeous baroque monastery of the Benedictine brethren. On deck, you enjoy the sunset and the beautiful evening illumination of the Wachau. At night shipping to Tulln, famous for its numerous market gardens where the famous Art Nouveau artist Egon Schiele was born.

Right in front of Vienna's entrance, embedded in a breathtaking landscape, the monastery of Klosterneuburg is situated. You can already see the cupola of this 900-year-old baroque building from a distance. "Kahlenbergerdorf" with it's wine taverns is definitely worth a visit. After a stroll through the vineyards, you can enjoy the panoramic view over Vienna.

Heute stehen bei Ihnen die Sehenswürdigkeiten der Donaumetropole auf dem Programm: Vielleicht Stephansdom und Hofburg, der Prachtboulevard Ringstraße mit Burgtheater, Staatsoper und Rathaus? Es gibt unzählige Möglichkeiten. Nehmen Sie sich trotzdem genügend Zeit zum Bummeln oder dem Besuch eines der berühmten Wiener Cafés. In der Nacht fährt Ihr Schiff nach Rossatz oder Dürnstein in der Wachau.

Die sanfte Hügellandschaft, geprägt von verträumten Dörfern, Weinterrassen, Burgen, Klöstern und Ruinen hat noch jedermann verzaubert. Über dem Barockstädtchen Dürnstein thront der blaue Turm der Stiftskirche, ein Wahrzeichen der Wachau. Nachmittags erwartet Sie das imposante Stift Melk, einer der bedeutendsten Barockbauten Österreichs. In Pöchlarn gehen Sie wieder an Bord. Am Abend feierliches Abschiedsdinner. Nachts Schifffahrt nach Passau.

Entspannt und ausgeruht erreichen Sie um ca. 10:00 Uhr Passau. Im Anschluss Ausschiffung und individuelle Heimreise.

Notes Please be aware that a cruise ship on the Danube is not only your hotel but also a machine, working with engine power also during the night. Especially crossing locks and bridges - and the preparation work - may cause noise. If you are sensitive please bring your own ear plugs. Please note: at low tide, the pool may need to be emptied in order to reduce the vessel’s draft and will not be available.
