    Danube Cycle Path Family bike tour "Danube hits for kids"

    Linz-Vienna

    • The Danube is an adventure playground for all ages. This cycle tour is an exciting journey of discovery and a hands-on holiday for children (of all ages).


      The big kids (adults) will enjoy recreation and rest in dreamy landscapes featuring many sights and attractions - although the program is customised and focused on the younger cyclists.

      Lots of variety is guaranteed: a donkey riding adventure, a boat ride on the Danube for which a Captain’s License is obtained and even a ride on the world’s oldest Ferris wheel are just a few of the many highlights.

      Tour profile:

      The cycling path is completely paved from one end to the other, flat, almost always directly along the riverbank and very suitable for beginners and children.

      Day 1: Linz

      A warm welcome is awaiting children and adults alike. Check-in. Dispersal of travel documents will follow. The rest of the day is up to you and at your leisure. Possibilities: let yourself be drifted away into a different world where you and your children can experience a new type of travel on the Dragon Train through the Land of Dwarves with a magical backdrop of the historical and stunning city of Linz.

      Day 2: Linz – Mitterkirchen, approx. 43 km

      Today we cycle to a Celtic open air museum. In a village typical of the Iron Age era, you will be shown the lifestyles of the people who lived in the region long ago. Accommodation for the night will be in a cosy farmhouse in the region of Machland. Dinner, which will feature delicious Austrian homemade specialities, will be served with typical local hospitality.

      Day 3: Mitterkirchen – Strudengau, approx. 43 km

      Old markets and castles nestled in forested rolling hills are highlights of today’s cycle ride to Strudengau. In the Maritime Museum at Grein you will see impressive models of ancient ships, plus you will see examples of early naval architecture and the craftsmanship that went into building these craft. In Ardagger there is a paradise of recreation and pleasure. A water park recreational facility and sandy beach volleyball courts are just two of the endless possibilities for fun and action. Enjoy!

      Day 4: Strudengau – Wachau, approx. 49 km

      Shortly after Pöchlarn, you will enter into the world renowned Valley of the Wachau, one of the most gorgeous riverside landscapes Europe has to offer. The impressive and breathtaking Benedictine Abbey of Melk overlooks the city and can be seen from afar. Cycling through the seemingly endless vineyards you will reach the winery village of Spitz, built around the so-called "Thousand Bucket Hill”.

      Day 5: Wachau (day of rest)

      You can enjoy the beautiful landscape of the Wachau and explore the castle of Dürnstein or Aggstein, visit the museum of ship building in Spitz or take a bath in the beautiful Danube river. Explore one of the numerous wine cellars in this wonderful wine region.

      E-bike

      By popular demand, we have now invested in a considerable number of e-bikes, much favoured by cyclists who love the great Outdoors, but prefer to let the bike take the strain.

      With an electro bike every bike tour is a breeze! If you had few opportunities to cycle over the last weeks or if you are not sure concerning your fitness, but also with physical disabilities, every bike ride is a treat! The shiftable, low noise electric drive of our modern E-bike relieves you of some of the work and increases the pedal force up to 3 times ... So you can now book a bike tour together with cyclists who have different fitness level. Acclivity can be handled easily.
      Please note that it won’t be possible to fix the handlebar bags on some of our E-Bikes.


      Bicycle breakdowns

      can happen even with new wheels and by best servicing. With the rental bikes you will receive repair vouchers which you can present in our authorised workshops along the way. Should a repair not be possible, please contact our service number! In a few hotels/guest houses we have some bikes on stock if you need to change them during the trip.


      Private bicycles

      You are welcome to bring your own bicycle. It is adapted especially to your needs. Do not forget to bring a repair kit with all necessary tools such as: keys, reserve tube and lock. Please check your own bicycle for operability upon arrival.

      For the return journey to Passau we recommend the reservation of the bus transfer or the train ride - some trains offer bicycle-parking possibilities, however those are limited and a reservation is necessary.
