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


    • 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.

      Day 6: Wachau – Tulln, approx. 40 km + ship ride Spitz-Krems

      Starting the day by biking through a spectacular landscape with steep rock walls, sun-kissed terraced vineyards, beautifully blooming orchards, quaint villages, dignified monasteries and authentic castles, take advantage of all the splendid panoramic outlooks, until you reach Tulln.

      Day 7: Tulln – Vienna, approx. 35 km

      The goal in mind you cycle cosy along the Tullnerfield. Approaching Vienna you will have a fantastic view of the skyline, far away from the fast paced city and all the traffic. Vienna is a city that loves its music and food. Kids will have a great time enjoying traditional sweets and hot chocolate. At nearly every corner you’ll hear waltzes, impromptu violin concerts and various see street performers. When the kids need a change of pace, head to the eastside of Vienna to ride the worlds’ oldest Ferris wheel and run around the fun filled all-year-round amusement park "Prater".

      Day 8: Vienna

      Before leaving Vienna make sure to visit the famous Naschmarkt (international foods/goods) and stop by the beautiful imperial castle Schönbrunn or even the Zoo. The train ride is provided back to Linz (personal bike with surcharge), or of course you can extend your stay in the City of Music.

    • Bicycles inclusive panniers:

      The offered bikes are touring bikes with an aluminium frame and kitted with responsive brakes and gears. Plus: mudguards, trip computers, comfort gel saddles, flat-palmed grips, Schwalbe Marathon anti-puncture tyres.

      You can choose between the following bikes:

      • 7-speed-bike with hand brake and backpedal brake
      • 21-speed-bike with hand brakes
      • E-bikes unisex, also for children (min. 130cm)
      • children seat, children trailer

      All bikes are equipped with a one-sided Ortlieb pannier (20 liters) and a handlebar bag/room.


      Our modern e-bikes (pedelecs) are quality branded bikes with hub gear, freewheel, powerful electric motor and gradually selectable pedal assistance. The battery range depends on support level, driving style, body weight and terrain. The more hilly the railing, the higher the body weight, the more battery capacity is consumed. You save your battery by starting with as low support as possible and increasing it if necessary.

      Tip: E-bikes are a great development, but should be - due to their driving characteristics (high weight + high speed) - booked only by very safe and experienced cyclists with a very good sense of balance. Not suitable are electric bikes for people who rarely ride a bicycle.

      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.
