Danube Self - Guided Cycling Weekend

Follow the curves and bends of the Danube as it flows through steep-sided valleys and wide riverside woods towards beautiful Vienna. The densely wooded slopes and ravine forests help to create the setting for one of the most significant river landscapes of Central Europe; with the largely flat landscape perfectly suited to self-guided cycling. You will pass many delightful castles, ruins and abbeys whilst visiting historic towns such as Melk and Krems.

Reviews

Title : Interesting and enjoyable mini cycling break
Summary : A great trip. The arrangements all worked very well, the bikes were waiting for us at first hotel and were in excellent condtion. The cycling is straightforward and not strenuous, leaving time for,sight seeing, meals, drinks etc. There are numerous cafes and restaurants en route. The route is clear and well signposted, and excellent maps and directions are also provided. Although short, the trip packs a lot in, and is very varied, The first day passes through a lot of interesting and historic small towns and villages, with castles etc. Tne second day is very peaceful and rural, and you stay very close to the river. The third day is also rural and quite remote initially, contrasting with arrival into Vienna -the approach through Donau Insel linear park is surprisingly green and pleasant. Hofels were all convenient and very comfortable, with excellent breakfasts.

Question : What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Answer : Cycling very close to Danube, with no other people around, next to woods and marshlands. Seeing a rather large adder slither across the path in front of us!
Question : What did you think of your group leader?
Answer : N/A
Question : Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
Answer : Arrive in Melk early enough to allow time to visit abbey and explore town. The route is much quieter outside weekends (although sharing the route with many other cyclists on a Sunday had a very pleasant atmosphere), We did it in April, which meant weather was warm and ideal for cycling - I think it might be too hot in high Summer.
