As casual as it may sound: you never lose sight of the Danube when hiking - and that throughout your hiking holiday! The hiking boots are laced, the rucksack is packed and the sun is shining from the sky. So let it begin. Your path leads you to the gently rolling ridge of the Upper Austrian Danube valley from Passau to Linz. You hike through shady forests, climb the impressive ruins of the Schaunburg and take a well-deserved break at the Schlögener Blick. You will often encounter such fantastic views on your journey. Again and again the new route opens up the breathtaking view of the Danube. And in between, cozy farms invite you to homemade delicacies and home-pressed cider or fruit juice.

Check in at the hotel. Let yourself be enchanted by the charm of Passau's old town on a stroll through the city.

Hotel example: Passauer Wolf

 

Overnight place: Passau

Enjoy the short boat trip to Kasten. There you enter the Donausteig and complete your first stage to Engelhartszell. Engelszell Abbey is the only Trappist monastery in Austria and is known for its beautiful rococo church.

Hotel example: Hotel Goldenes Schiff

Overnight place: Engelhartszell

The ferry takes you to the northern bank of the Danube. You walk steeply up the "Donauleiten". A magnificent view of the valley opens up from the Penzenstein. It goes over gentle hills to the ruins of Rannariedl. Back down on the Danube you will reach the Wesenufer.

Hotel example: Gasthof Draxler

Overnight place: essence shore

Today you hike up to Marsbach Castle. The wonderful hilly landscape of the Mühlviertel accompanies you right up to the Schlögener Schlinge. The numerous ruins are reminiscent of the wild days of medieval robber barons on the Danube. From the ruins of Heichenbach you can already guess your stage destination in Schlögen.

Hotel example: Hotel Donauschlinge

Overnight place: Slings

The natural spectacle of a river meander is to be admired today: the Schlögener Schlinge. Take your time on the steep climb to the Schlögener Blick. However, you will be rewarded with a breathtaking panoramic view of the entire Danube loop.

Hotel example: Hotel Sonne

Overnight place: Ashach

The hiking tour begins with a bus ride from Aschach to Ottensheim. Then hike from Ottensheim, always with a view of Wilhering Abbey, on over the Pöstlingberg directly to Linz.
