Danube Cycle Path

Current Information

Melk-Mautern area: Due to the landslide in the area of ​​the municipality of Aggsbach Dorf, the Danube cycle path on the southern bank of the Danube between Aggsbach Dorf and Aggstein is closed. Until the ferry service to bypass the Danube cycle path closure starts, we recommend changing to the north bank in St. Lorenz (to Weißenkirchen) or in Arnsdorf (to Spitz). The closure is expected to last through the summer months.
Mautern-Krems area: Due to construction work on the bridge between Mautern and Stein (Mauterner Bridge), there are restrictions for cyclists! The cycle path currently runs on the road (speed limit 30 km/h).  We ask for increased caution!


The Danube Cycle 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 Cycle Path also winds its way through Austria, running parallel to the mighty river. There are a total of 410 enjoyable kilometers from the German city of Passau to Bratislava 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.
