On the Danube Cycle Path you cycle downstream past Engelhartszell to the Schlögener Schlinge. In the evening, the Mühlviertel beer cuisine will spoil your senses. After the refreshing pear frizzante "Donauperle" as an aperitif, there follows a three-course themed menu with corresponding beer specialties from the Mühlviertel breweries.

Numerous down-to-earth inns along the Danube invite you to a hearty Brettljause and foam-topped Mühlviertler beers. Enjoy! In Linz you can taste the original Linzer Torte at a coffee house in the picturesque old town.

Through the wild Strudengau you leave the beer country of Upper Austria and reach the wine country of Lower Austria. High above the Danube, the Basilica of Maria Taferl greets you from afar. Look forward to the lovingly prepared culinary delights in the gourmet restaurant Hotel Schachner.
