One of Europe’s most popular cycle paths, this family-friendly route along the Blue Danube passes through the picturesque towns and villages of Upper and Lower Austria and Bavaria, and is a perfect introduction to the magic of European cycling holidays.
Starting in the pretty baroque town of Schärding in Upper Austria, it’s a gentle ride along easy, mostly downhill tracks through Austria, ending up in the enchanting town of Linz. Short daily stages on well-marked, traffic free paths, frequent breaks for activities and child-friendly hotels make this trip lots of fun for children and grown-ups too.
