Danube Cycle Path

Family Biketour on the Danube Cycle Path

Children love to ride bikes. So what could be nicer than cycling along the Danube Cycle Path together? The little ones take child-friendly stages day after day with ease. Exciting adventures are waiting along the way: castles, ships, mermaids and the fairytale world of the Linz Grottenbahn. And in between, the Danube beaches invite you to play and relax. Ideal for the whole family!
