From the elegant city of Passau in southern Germany, you travel past the dramatic Schlögener Loop, a 180° turn in the Danube's course, and visit some of the highlights of the Austrian Danube. Passau, close to the German-Austrian border, is known as the city of 3 rivers, and the tour also visits the World Heritage Site of Wachau, and Linz, the capital of Upper Austria.
The tour includes a full day in Vienna with no riding, giving you time to visit some of the highlights of the Austrian capital. These are too numerous to mention, but include St Stephen's Cathedral, the Burgtheater, the State Opera House, the Naschmarkt, or one of the many traditional coffee houses.
The cruise is rounded off by a final cycle ride through the special Wachau region. An area famous for its wines and attractive baroque towns, and the Captain's Farewell Dinner. You leave the boat in Passau on the final morning after a cruise of infinite variety and interest.
