Short 5-day Bike and Barge Tour Passau to Vienna

You do not have a whole week? You have never done a bike & boat trip before but always wanted to try it out? Then this trip is just right for you. In 5 days and 4 nights you will experience many beautiful moments that you will always remember. Discover the fascinating landscape of the wild Strudengau and Melk with its world famous Benedictine monastery. In Vienna you will then be spoilt for choice - a city that can hardly be described, that simply has to be experienced. No matter what you choose, a visit to one of the countless cozy coffee houses should always be included. One of the highlights of this tour, however, will definitely be your bike tour through the Wachau: UNESCO World Heritage Site, home to great wines and ancient castles - and last but not least, the region between Krems and Melk delights with its scenic beauty
