Description

Day 1: Vienna
Arrive individually in Vienna. After sorting your luggage, you will have time to explore this incredible Imperial city and sample the local delicacies in a typical tavern.

Day 2: Vienna – Bad-Deutsch Altenburg and surroundings (42 km)
The Danube Cycle Path will guide you along quiet paths through the Donauauen National Park, passing close to Orth Castle. After crossing the ancient Roman city Petronell Carnuntum, with its excavations and Roman ruins, you will continue to the spa and resort town of Bad Deutsch Altenburg.

Day 3: Bad Deutsch Altenburg – Bratislava (26 km)
Today the Danube Cycle Path will take you through the hills of Hainburg and the Carpathian Mountains, continuing to Europe's youngest capital, Bratislava. The Slovak capital has a charming old town, as well as magnificent modern buildings.

Day 4: Bratislava – Györ (82 km)
The marshy landscape of Szigetköz is an ideal environment and a paradise for birds and fish. Among these wild and pristine plains, with over 500 tiny islands, you will find picturesque farming villages and a labyrinth of countless Danube channels and coves. You will then reach the final destination of the day: Györ, with its beautiful old town squares in Baroque style. We recommend that you take the route between Mosonmagyarovar and Györ by train for comfort. Tickets can be purchased at the ticket machines in the railway station, at a price of about €1 per journey. Using the train, the length of the cycling route is reduced to only 44 km.

Day 5: Györ – Komarno and surroundings (57 km)
The National Stud in Babolna is world-famous for its breeding of Arabian horses, and certainly warrants a visit. After cycling through lush rolling hills, you will arrive in the village of Komarno, the favorite village of the famous King Matthias.

Day 6: Komarno – Danube Bend (52 km)
Today you will cycle along the banks of the Slovak Danube, on small, lightly trafficked roads and through characteristic villages. On the way to the City of Bishops and Kings, Esztergom, also known as the Hungarian Rome or the Royal City, you will also pass Kelemantia Roman Fort. The Basilica of Esztergom, the largest Catholic church in Hungary, is another gem of the tour.

Day 7: Danube Bend – Budapest (50 or 67 km) + boat or train tour
Nestled in hilly landscape, the Danube River splits here, creating the island of Szentendre. You will cross and admire picturesque villages. Szentendre is famous for its many artisan boutiques and the Skanzen open-air museum. During the boat trip to Budapest, you can enjoy a beautiful view of Budapest's most famous sites. Depending on the time of year, the boat trip can be scheduled at the beginning or end of the route. Alternatively, when it's not boat season, a train ticket will be provided.

Day 8: Budapest
After breakfast, the services end and individual departure or possibility to extend the stay.
