Scharding to Vienna Self-guided Cycling Tour

Explore the paths along the blue Danube River just like the Romans, the legendary Nibelungs, and even some of Europe’s powerful kings and emperors did before you. You will get to know the beauty and historical significance of this ancient military and trading route. Never far away from the cool, clear water of the Danube, you will enjoy one of Europe’s most beautiful and popular cycle routes. You start your trip in the baroque town of Scharding. You will cycle through various districts of Upper and Lower Austria and finally to the Danube metropolis of Vienna. You will love the breathtaking natural beauty of the Danube valley and the Schlögen bend or perhaps you will fall in love with the landscapes along the Danube such as the Machland, the Strudengau, or the famous Wachau. In the rural areas, to accompany these wonderful impressions, you can enjoy many traditional Austrian delicacies.

Your physical wellbeing will be well catered for, from savoury dumpling specialities and light and sweet cider all the way to the wines of the Buschenschenken taverns in the Wachau region. This cycle tour is a true classic and an ideal option for your organised sporty cycling holidays.

  • Day 1

    Arrival in Scharding

    Stroll through the pretty little baroque town of Schärding and marvel at the famous Silberzeile lane

  • Day 2

    Scharding – Aschach/Brandstatt approx. 70 - 80km

    You will cycle along the river Inn to the city of three rivers, Passau. Here, we recommend a short city tour or a visit to the cathedral, where you can listen to the largest church organ in the world (except Sundays and holidays). Then, you will continue your journey along the Danube via Obernzell to Engelhartszell (the only Trappist monastery in Austria). You will cycle through the nature reserve Donauleiten and reach the Schlögen bend on its northern side. Here, the granite stone was too hard an opponent and the Danube had to make a 180° turn. You will have time to watch this natural phenomenon during a ferry ride to the other side of the river, where you will find your hotel.

  • Day 3

    Aschach/Brandstatt - Ardagger/Grein approx. 80km

    Today, you will ride your bike through the green of the Eferdinger Becken (basin) via Aschach, Ottensheim, and Wilhering to the Upper Austrian capital Linz. Following the motto, ͞In Linz beginnt’s͟ (͞It starts in Linz͟) you can begin your city tour in one of the many restaurants in the historic old town. Further highlights of the European culture capital of 2009 are the magnificent views from the Pöstlingberg or a stroll along the Danube. Later, you will continue your trip towards Strudengau and Nibelungengauto Grein and its surroundings.

  • Day 4

    Ardagger/Grein – Krems approx. 85km

    From the Baroque town of Grein, with the oldest city theatre in Austria, you will ride your bike down the river. In Melk, you should stop briefly and look up – otherwise you may miss the beauty of the abbey Melk, which towers above the Danube. Then, you will cycle via the wine towns of Spitz and Weißenkirchen and past the ruins of the castle Dürnstein to your hotel in Krems. Today, we will organise wine tasting for you –which is a must during a visit to the Wachau region.

  • Day 5

    Krems – Vienna approx. 80km

    From the 1,000-year-old city Krems, you will cycle via Traismauer and visit the Roman town of Tulln. Here, you can once again enjoy the tranquility and culture (e.g. with a visit to the Egon Schiele museum) of the rural area before you will get to the Danube metropolis of Vienna. Enjoy a cup of ͞Verlängerter͟ coffee and a piece of the famous cake Sachertorte in one of the typical Viennese coffee houses or visit the main attractions of the city during a ride with one of the famous ͞Fiaker͟ (horse-drawn carriages).

  • Day 6

    Departure or extension of your stay in Vienna
