    • 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

      with 28" tyres in different frame dimensions for ladies and gents.

      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.

      additional comments

      It would be good to make it more clear that the bags need to be at the drop-off by 9:00 on the first morning. We were not aware of this detail at first. We really appreciated the a la carte option. This was why we chose your company. Thank you!
