7 Nights / 8 Days

Biking along the German/Austrian Danube is a very special pleasure because the hotel is always with you. Gently downhill, mostly supported by a tailwind, you are experiencing the impressive river as it meanders in the Donauschlinge ("Great Loop") and enjoying the gorgeous landscape of the legendary Wachau with its castles and fortresses. In Vienna, a beautiful city rich in architecture and history, you will enjoy exploring the metropolis during a wonderful sightseeing tour by bike. In many ways it is a city that is hard to describe – you really have to see and feel it for yourself! Once you have finished sightseeing on your bicycle you can relax in one of the many cozy cafés or in a typical Viennese wine tavern. After a great day of cycling and exploring relax onboard the MV Theodor Körner while listening to live music or discover the port city.
