A guide to cycling the Danube Cycle Way from Donauschingen in Bavaria to
Budapest. The most popular holiday cycle touring route in Europe takes
cyclists along the route of the Danube river covering 1350km, in 20
stages, mainly on dedicated cycle tracks. Suitable for all abilities and
ages. All route-finding and accommodation information included.
The Danube Cycle Way has become the most popular holiday cycling
route in mainland Europe. It has magnificent scenery, fascinating places
to visit throughout its length and a wide cultural diversity. It is not
unusual to sit in a wayside bar and hear seven different languages
being spoken at the same time, but not one of them is likely to be
English. It is high time this changed.
This guide aims to introduce the Danube Cycle Way not only to keen
long-distance cyclists but also to people who have never experienced the
joys of this kind of journey. The fact that the majority of the route
is on dedicated, clearly signed cycle tracks means that it is perfect
for whole families to enjoy.
Although the guide divides the length of the cycle way into twenty
suggested days, a plentiful amount of low-priced accommodation
throughout the entire length of the route means that each day's journey
can be tailored to cyclists' needs. The way is almost free of hills,
includes visits to monasteries, castles, museums, and ancient cities as
well as picturesque villages, and provides adventurous cyclists with a
month's sheer pleasure. It is there, waiting to be enjoyed.
