travel code
THURS 20 - MS Swiss Crown
8 days / 7 nights
Bookable again soon


Cycle by bike + boat from the "Bavarian Venice" right into the heart of the once glamorous Austro-Hungarian Empire. Look forward to three of the most charming capitals in Europe: the waltz metropolis of Vienna, the coronation city of Bratislava and Budapest, the "Paris of the East" and enjoy unique Danube river landscapes and regional specialties. The bike tours lead through the wildly romantic Schlögener Donauschlinge, the picturesque Danube bend with the largest cathedral in Hungary and the legendary UNESCO World Heritage Site Wachau with its dreamy little towns, enchanted castles and palaces. Enjoy an exclusive atmosphere on board the two premium cruise ships – whether in the spacious, comfortable cabins or the stylish outdoor areas. Every minute of this eventful cycle tour promises a very special holiday experience

Other tour variants: MS Vivienne (Arrival every Sunday, from April 28.04th to October 06.10.24th, )

Blick auf die Drei Flüsse Stadt Passau

Rad und Schiff Karte des Premium-Schiffes MS FortunaUse the time until embarkation between 16:00 p.m. and 17:00 p.m. for a stroll through the city, marvel at the world's largest church organ in Passau Cathedral and enjoy Bavarian cosiness in the beer garden. Then it's time to cast off! The dream scenery of Passau's old town slowly disappears on the horizon.

Overnight place: Passau

The day is a real cycling pleasure! You cycle from Engelhartszell (Austria's only Trappist monastery) through the wild and romantic Danube loop, one of the most beautiful stretches of river with dreamy farming villages. Along the way, cozy cider taverns tempt you with all kinds of delicacies. In the idyllic shipping town of Aschach you go back on board and “sail” into the night.

Overnight place: Ashach

Along the former Iron Curtain, a narrow cycle path leads from the Devin fortress to the imposing Hof Palace with one of the most magnificent baroque gardens in Europe. A small piece of untouched nature follows and shortly afterwards you are in the vibrant metropolis of Bratislava. Our city tour (optional) leads to the castle hill, from where you can enjoy a unique panoramic view of the coronation city, and ends with a tour of the historic city center.

Overnight place: Bratislava

The entrance to Budapest is breathtakingly beautiful with a view of the most beautiful buildings in the city. During a city tour (optional) you will discover the Danube metropolis or take a detour to the enchanting artists' town of Szentendre. In the evening, a visit to the Jewish quarter is worthwhile.

Overnight place: Budapest

Steep mountain slopes frame the picturesque, gently rolling landscape of the "Hungarian Wachau". At the farmer's market in Vác you can stock up on typical specialties, history, folklore and Hungarian joie de vivre accompany you during your bike tour to Esztergom (Nibelungenlied/King Etzel's seat), where the mighty basilica (Hungary's largest church) rises high above the castle district into the sky protrudes.

Overnight place: Esztergom

On a bicycle saddle or by bus, Vienna's most famous sights are within reach during a city tour (optional). The magnificent Ringstrasse is reminiscent of times long past, time-honored coffee houses entice with Viennese pastries. The evening traditionally ends with a classical waltz and operetta concert in the magnificent Schönbrunn Palace (optional). Night boat trip to the Wachau.

Overnight place: Vienna/Wachau

Your last bike tour is the king's stage! The gently rolling landscape of the Wachau enchants with dreamy villages, historic castles and palaces surrounded by apricot trees and vineyards. In Spitz, cozy wine taverns lure you right next to the cycle path - you should really treat yourself to a break here (wine tasting optional)!

Overnight place: Dairy

Once again you can enjoy the first rays of sunshine on deck and the peaceful morning silence of the Danube valley. A last look at the Schlögener Schlinge before you - rich in impressions and experiences - reach Passau/surroundings. Disembarkation: around 11:00 am. Individual journey home. We recommend reserving connecting connections for the journey home no earlier than 12:00 p.m.
