      Tour profile:

      to a large extent the route is flat and along asphalt paths, some parts of the path run along compressed earthen paths.

      Day 1: Donauwoerth/Woernitzstein

      Individual arrival. Your trip begins in the beautiful city of Donauwörth, where the former most important trade route between Nürnberg and Augsburg crossed the Danube.

      Day 2: Donauwoerth/Woernitzstein - Ingolstadt, approx. 65 km

      You will speed along today’s route on good quality surfaces. Just before Marxheim you will come to the foothills of the Franconian Jura which will introduce some small hills to your cycle. Don’t miss to visit the old town of Neuburg before going on towards Ingolstadt. The Museum Mobile is worth a visit. Or take a stroll through the old town within the old fortified walls.

      Day 3: Ingolstadt - Abensberg/Bad Gögging, approx. 50 km + boat

      You cycle through the Donau-Auen, mostly along the river, to Bad Gögging. From here it is only a few kilometers to Abensberg. The small town has a lovingly renovated historic old town. Don’t miss the beer garden of the Hundertwasser brewery Kuchlbauer!

      Day 4: Abensberg/Bad Gögging - Regensburg, approx. 55 km + boat

      You cycle along the Abens and then the Danube to Weltenburg Monastery, where a very special natural spectacle awaits you: the Danube Gorge, where the Danube has dug its way through a massive Jura rock. But be sure to strengthen yourself in the monastery’s beer garden before you take the ship through the Danube Gorge to Kelheim and from there on to Regensburg.

      Day 5: Regensburg - Straubing, approx. 55 km

      The Danube now meanders through the wide plain, and you cycle leisurely along. Take a short break at the Walhalla, which King Ludwig I had built, before you arrive in today’s destination of Straubing, the main town of the "Gäuboden" region. The Gäubodenfest, a popular folk festival, takes place here every summer.

      Day 6: Straubing - Deggendorf, approx. 40 km

      Soon after the start you will reach Bogen, which is known for the discovery of a statue of the pregnant Madonna. It continues through Pfelling and Mariaposching and finally you reach the gateway to the Bavarian Forest: Deggendorf, where Gothic and Baroque characterize the old town.

      Day 7: Deggendorf - Passau, approx. 55 km

      On your way today is the historic town of Vilshofen, which you may know from the Ash Wednesday speeches by CSU Chairman Strauss. Soon you will reach your destination, the three-river city and former bishop’s residence of Passau. End your trip with a stroll through the old town

      Day 8: Passau

        No surprises

        First a word about the bicycles. Midway through the trip I realized that there had never been any numbness in my hands. I ride an expensive TREK bike at home and within an hour I experience numbness in my hands which I notice is not uncommon. Congratulations ...
