      Through the Donau-Auen National Park, a true natural paradise, you cycle on the first leg from Vienna to Bad Deutsch-Altenburg. The approximately 75-kilometer route leads you on predominantly solidified paths without great gradients to two castles that are worth a visit: the Renaissance castle in Orth and the castle Eckartsau, in which the last emperor of Austria lived. Once you have arrived in Bad Deutsch-Altenburg, a health resort awaits you with one of the strongest iodine sulfur springs in Europe.Tip: In the thermal bath of the city, tired cyclist's legs will quickly get better again.

      The sixth and final leg will take you from Esztergom to Budapest. On the approximately 81 kilometers you come along the Danube bend, a beautiful loop of the river, over which once a royal palace was enthroned. From here, you cycle on mainly paved bike paths in the artist town of Szentendre with its many museums and small shops until the destination of Budapest is approaching. Plan for the wonderful cosmopolitan city with its numerous highlights, such as the historic Chain Bridge and the magnificent Burgpalast, enough time for sightseeing.Tip: At the end of the tour, treat yourself to a traditional goulash dish, called pörkölt, paprikás or tokány in Budapest, followed by a dobos torta (famous pie made from six sponge cakes, chocolate butter cream and caramel icing). Calories or not - you deserve it!

      From Bratislava it is about 82 kilometers on the Hungarian side of the Danube to Györ. On the third stage, enjoy the enchanting riparian landscape that forms the tributaries of the Danube. Manageable slopes lead you through small dreamy villages to the Slovak-Hungarian border area to Györ, the sixth largest city in Hungary. It has a beautiful baroque old town with all sorts of sights to offer.

      From Komárom, the fifth stage takes about 56 kilometers along the Danube to Esztergom, with a short section on the Slovak side. A first stop is worthwhile in the village of Iža, which leads to a slightly bumpy road. Here you can explore the Kalemantia Castle, a former Roman military camp. Continue to the oldest city in Hungary. In Esztergom is the largest cathedral in the country, which you should definitely visit. Small drawback: A few kilometers you have to cycle again and again on busy roads.

      On the fourth stage you drive on mostly paved roads about 45 kilometers to Komárom, a Slovak-Hungarian twin city. From time to time sections are not paved and therefore a bit bumpy. Worth seeing in Komárom are especially the Fort Monostor (a gigantic fortress), the Europa-Platz and the old city gates. If you like, you can make a detour to the National Stud of Bálbona, where Arabs have been bred for centuries and the imperial aura of the Danube monarchy can still be felt today.

      The aim of the second stage of the day is the Slovak capital, which is only about 22 kilometers from the starting point Bad Deutsch-Altenburg and can be reached on well-developed, mostly paved and car-free paths. The first stop you should insert in Hainburg. On a city tour you can visit the largest medieval city gate in Europe. The route will take you to the Slovak border and soon to Bratislava. Take some time for sightseeing and climb the hill that leads to the imposing Bratislava Castle high above the Danube. The reward is a breathtaking view of the historic city center with its small, narrow streets.

      After Passau you leave Lower Bavaria behind you and cross on the first stage the border with Austria. It goes on partly steep paths along the Danube towards Engelhartszell with its pretty Trappist monastery and its impressive Rococo style collegiate church. On your way through the nature reserve Donauleiten you will pass the Schlögener Schlinge - a real natural spectacle. Here the Danube makes almost a 180 degree turn. After about 60 kilometers you reach your destination. Overnight stays are available for example in St. Agatha or Haibach.

      On this stage you leave the Upper Danube Valley and cycle about 50 kilometers to Linz. On the way you should look at the castle in Aschach and the place Ottensheim with its traditional market place. Both offer a great backdrop for a breather. At the end of the tour Linz waits for you - the third largest city in Austria. There are nice, small street cafes, pretty Danube beaches and great sights, such as the cathedral.

      The third stage in Austria leads to Linz from about 63 kilometers to Grein. The first stopover is the KZ Gusen memorial. This is followed by the open air museum Mitterkirchen, where you can immerse yourself in the world of the Celts. You should take a break at the bicycle station Mitterkirchen, where you will also be helped in the event of a breakdown. The Danube cycle path continues past meadows and through shady forests to the pretty baroque town of Grein. The nostalgic charm of the narrow streets and the lovely Greinburg Castle is best enjoyed on foot.

      Today's stage is one of the most scenic sections on the Danube. Here you drive on easy trails about 48 kilometers from Grein to Emmersdorf, while the river flows picturesquely through the valleys of the Strudengau. Short detours are worth the Stillensteinklamm as well as the castles Persenbeug and Luberegg. At the roadside, shortly after Marbach, you should take a break at the imposing pilgrimage church Maria Taferl, before you head to Emmersdorf.
