The Danube Bike Path is one of the most scenic cycling routes in Europe. It extends for about 1,200 kilometers from Donaueschingen in Germany to the Hungarian capital of Budapest.
The Danube Bike Path also winds its way through Austria, running parallel to the mighty river. There are a total of 365 enjoyable kilometers from the German city of Passau to Hainburg on the border to Slovakia. Of that total, 260 kilometers run through the Lower Austrian Danube region, a wonderful treasure indeed. Tow paths, well-cared-for bike paths and quiet village streets connect both banks of the river. Rest stops with comfortable pergolas for cyclists are inviting places to stop and kick back for a while.
