Danube Bike Trail

A relaxed trip in a beautiful landscape!

Danube Bike Trail - Donauradweg

The Danube bike trail offers a wide variety of scenery combined with easy riding. From being squeezed between the cliffs and the river, to cycling through vineyards and orchards, you have it all.

Quaint villages and towns are at regular intervals along the river providing good places to stay and eat. There is no need to book accommodations in advance. Even without knowledge of German or Hungarian, you will have no difficulties finding food and lodging.

Length: Passau - Vienna 335 km (approx. 210 miles)
Vienna - Budapest 340 km (approx. 213 miles)

The BikeLineGuide provides all necessary information: precise maps, detailed descriptions of the route and sights you'll be seeing, plus a comprehensive list of accommodation.

Hi, Last year (2014) I rented a bike from Pedal Power and took it by train to Melk and then cycled to Budapest.  It was possible to deposit the bike in Budapest.  I was very impressed with your service and the bike you provided me.  Unlike the bikes my friends hired from another company, yours were well serviced and a pleasure to ride.  This year I am bringing 2 cousins to do the same cycle trip and hope it is possible to rent three women's bikes from you, with paniers, crash helmets and extra gel seats.....
