  • On the D-Route 6 "Danube route" of the German cycle network, wild meadow landscapes, imposing buildings, lots of culture and legendary stories await you. Most of the time you are on the road directly on the banks of the Danube.


    But the D-Route 6, which is 790 kilometers long, starts well before the source

  • Donauroute also starts in Donaueschingen - there is a small stream, hardly visible. Good to see that the river is getting wider along the route.
