Travelroute

Day 1: Arrival in Passau

Nestled in between the Inn, Ilz, and Danube on the Bavarian/ Austrian border lies the bishop city of Passau. Check in on your cruise liner at 5:00 PM. Enjoy a welcome cocktail and some live music after your evening meal.

Day 2: Passau - Linz, approx

Distance: approx. 35 km

Cycle on the former towpath, past quaint villages tucked away in undisturbed landscape. Change the pace a bit by cruising around the river bend from Obermühl to Linz and take in the beauty of the natural surroundings. If you like, you can explore the Upper Austrian capital city on the bright yellow “City Express”.

Day 3: Linz - Grein

Distance: approx. 43 km

Today, you can either cycle directly along the Danube and take your time enjoying the meadow landscape, or cycle to the fortress of Clam and into the dreamy backcountry of Strudengau. Today’s destination is the small town of Grein where you can visit Austria’s oldest city theatre and the castle of Greinburg.

Day 4: Grein – Melk - Tulln

Today’s stretch of the tour is characterised by various landscapes. The peaceful Strudengau Valley awaits you. The valley widens near Persenbeug. Continue to Melk with its magnificent Baroque Benedictine monastery. Enjoy the Wachau from the deck as you cruise to the garden city of Tulln.

Day 5: Tulln - Vienna

Distance: approx. 37 km

The monastery, Klosternauburg, is situated next to the city gate of Vienna. You can see the dome of the 900 year old gorgeous Baroque building from the distance. Its “Verduner Altar” is a highlight of medieval goldsmith art. The wine town of Kahlenbergerdorf is near the port. After strolling through the vineyards, enjoy the fantastic view from the terrace of the Kahlenberg onto the metropolis.

Day 6: Vienna (Day of Rest)

Distance: approx. 50 km

Discover Vienna! If you like, you can take a city tour by bike or bus (approx. 3.5 hrs.) to experience the most famous parts of the city: The Hofburg Imperial Palace, St. Stephen’s Cathedral, and the boulevard leading up to the Vienna State Opera. In the afternoon, there will be plenty of time to stroll through town and visit the famous Viennese Café. You may even like to crown your evening with an operetta at the Kursalon.

Day 7: Wachau – Krems / Emmersdorf

Distance: approx. 25 km

You won’t want to miss out on today’s highlight! Be enchanted by the rolling hills dotted with charming little villages, apricot trees, wine terraces, castles, abbeys, and ruins. After your gala dinner, sit back and enjoy the live folklore show on board.

Day 8: Departure from Passau

Take in the beauty of the peaceful Danube valley one more time. Arrive in Passau around noon and disembark.
