The journey follows Sisi's bridal journey from Passau to Vienna along the Danube. The route, marked out by bike and premium ship, enables the discovery of breathtaking river landscapes, picturesque villages, castles and palaces, embedded in beautiful nature. It is characterized by the warmth of the Austrians and the culinary delights of the region, including world-famous pastries. The Wachau, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is known for its excellent wines. The largest church in the country is located in Linz, the capital of Upper Austria. Vienna, the waltz metropolis, impresses with its charm, unique architecture and captivating stories from the imperial era.

Bike and boat tour map of the Danube

Experience Mediterranean flair in the three-river city of Passau. On the day of your arrival, be sure to plan some time for a stroll through the picturesque, baroque old town with narrow streets and the Passau Cathedral with the largest church organ in the world. After embarkation between 16:00 p.m. and 17:00 p.m., cast off and your cycling holiday begins with a romantic boat trip into the sunset, with a view of the Passau backdrop of church towers and domes slowly disappearing on the horizon.

How does the densely overgrown forest floor smell, like the freshly mown meadow? Very close and right in the middle you cycle on the former stairway, past tranquil villages through the original landscape of the upper Danube valley. Small, rustic pubs along the way invite you to linger, and the scent of freshly grilled fish on a stick wafts over the bike path. From the Schlögener Blick you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the natural spectacle of the Danube loop.

Get a breath of fresh country air again - at noon you will reach Upper Austria's provincial capital, Linz. Take the bright yellow slow train (optional) on a tour of discovery through Europe's Capital of Culture 2009. The cathedral is the largest church in Austria, the Pöstlingbergbahn is the steepest adhesion railway in the world. Curious about the future? In the "ARS Electronica Museum" you can try out impressive examples of modern technologies for yourself. Don't miss it!

Just outside the gates of Vienna, the dome of Klosterneuburg Abbey shines, visible from afar; The “Verdun Altar” is one of the highlights of medieval goldsmithing. Visit one of the traditional Viennese wine taverns or enjoy a fantastic view of the metropolis from the viewing terrace of the Kahlenberg. Your evening will sound atmospheric with a classic waltz and
Operetta concert in Sisi's summer residence (optional).

During a city tour on a bicycle or individually with the HOP ON HOP OFF bus (optional), the sights are within reach. The magnificent Ringstrasse is reminiscent of times long past, time-honored coffee houses tempt you with Viennese pastries, the Naschmarkt is a spectacle for the eyes, ears and nose.

An unforgettable day in the picturesque Wachau! Cycle through small wine-growing villages surrounded by vineyard terraces and apricot trees. The dreamy town of Dürnstein with its narrow streets is a special highlight, in Spitz there are cozy wine taverns (wine tasting optional) right on the cycle path and the impressive Benedictine monastery of Melk is one of the most beautiful baroque ensembles in Europe.

A beautiful and varied route with impressions in all facets lies ahead of you! From the medieval town of Grein (oldest municipal theater in Austria, visit optional)) you cycle through the idyllic hinterland of the Strudengau, with a bit of luck you will be personally guided through the romantic Clam Castle by the lord of the castle and take a journey back in time into prehistory in the Celtic village of Mitterkirchen. The Mauthausen Memorial concentration camp memorial is located on a hill near the city.

Enjoy the first rays of sunshine and the morning stillness on deck before you reach Passau/surroundings, full of impressions and experiences. Disembarkation: around 11:00 am. We recommend planning connecting trains for the journey home no earlier than 12:00 p.m.

A wonderful trip with our friends

Everything was very well organized. Food varied, clean cabin, attentive service, nice music and all-round support from the tour guide. The billing of the drinks was clear and correct. The route selection for the bike tours was good. Our ECO cabin was very small and noisy when the ship was moving - we will refer to a better cabin for future trips. Summary: The trip will stay in our best memory.
