This purely Austrian bike tour on the Danube begins in the provincial capital of Linz, which has reinvented itself from its industrial roots. Today, it is a modern and inviting university city with lots of culture. You’ll cycle through three stunning regions – from the vast Machland into the wild Strudengau and on to the lovely Wachau. Let the local winemakers pamper you with excellent wines and the famous apricots. Finally, the metropolis of Vienna awaits you - from the Albertina Museum to the zoo at Schönbrunn Palace. This cycle tour on the Danube is suitable for all.
