Scharding to Vienna 'sporty' 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

    Passau – Linz approx. 95 - 110km

    First, you will follow the river Inn to where it joins the Danube and then you will cycle along the Danube towards Engelhartszell. Here you should not miss visiting the abbey Engelhartszell with its own liquor production. On your further journey to Linz you will come across the unique nature phenomenon ͞Schlögler Schlinge͟, where the Danube is forced to make a 180° turn. Once you have reached the European culture capital of 2009, you can enjoy the lively historic old town, the scenic views of Linz from the Pöstlingberg, or simply a walk along the Danube.

  • Day 3

    Linz –Melk/surroundings approx. 100 km

    You will leave Linz and cycle towards Strudengau and Nibelungengau. You will cycle past the Celtic village Mitterkirchen and just before the border between Upper and Lower Austria you will see the baroque town of Grein with Austria’s oldest city theatre and the castle Greinburg. Then you will continue your journey to Maria Taferl and Melk. Here you should stop briefly and look up – otherwise you may miss the beauty of the abbey Melk, which towers above the Danube.

  • Day 4

    Melk/surroundings – Vienna approx. 115 km

    Today, you will leave Melk and cycle into the landscape of the Wachau region, where you will be enchanted by the atmosphere of the typical fruit orchards and vineyards. Today, we will organise wine tasting for you – which is a must during a visit to the Wachau region. Refreshed, you will cycle past the wine towns of Spitz and Weißenkirchen as well as the ruins of Dürnstein castle. During the last kilometres of your bike tour you will cycle via the 1,000-year-old town of Krems and the Roman town of Tulln to the Danube metropolis of Vienna.
