River Danube Bike & Cruise (DBC)


Start / End
Passau / Passau
103/131 ml (166/211 km)
7 Nights / 8 Days

It was in Passau that Sisi began her journey along the Danube as a young bride to
Vienna, where she was eagerly awaited by her Emperor Franz. Follow in the footsteps
of the Austrian empress by bicycle and on a nostalgia ship as you discover
breathtakingly beautiful river scenery with small sleepy villages, castles and palaces set
in gorgeous countryside and enjoy warm Austrian hospitality at every stage of your
cycling tour.
The region is a gourmand’s paradise and famous for its cakes, pastries and other
irresistible culinary treats. After Wiener Schnitzel, Sachertorte and apricot dumplings
it’ll be much easier to burn up the miles...
Wines from the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Landscape Wachau enjoy an
international reputation, Linz, the capital of Upper Austria is home to the biggest
church in Austria. And then there’s Vienna... Enchanting, charming and perhaps slightly
eccentric, the City of Waltz will capture your heart in an instant. Magnificent buildings
from the imperial age bear witness to the impressive history of times gone by.


Thursdays Only: 30th April - 8th Oct 2020

General information
One the one hand, a riverboat is a “holiday hotel”, while on the other, it is also a means of
transport that moves with motor power and must always be operated, even at night
(partially with lock and bridge passages and the retractions and extensions of the structures
caused as a result). Mistakes can happen with lock passages. This is the case for all Danube
journeys and cannot be avoided. Please bear in mind that riverboats are restricted (bridge
passages, locks) in size (length, height, width) and therefore cannot be compared with cruise
liners in the sea. The cabins are limited in space but are nevertheless comfortable and
furnished. In the event of extremely high or low water, the shipping company reserves the
right to bridge stages by bus or even to cancel the trip at short notice without any legal claim
arising therefrom (water levels are force majeure). The same applies for officially decreed
repairs to locks or bridges, not announced in advance, or in the event of motor or propulsion
damage to the ship without attributed fault.
