The Danube Valley is an exceptional route for cyclists. Between Passau and Vienna, you are on Eurovelo 6, a fully marked European cycle route with wide cycle paths.

  • the Eurovelo 6
  • Passau, Linz and Vienna
  • Historical and cultural heritage

4th day - From Linz to Grein or Ardagger - 63 km

The Danube valley widens, giving way to the straightness of cultivated fields. The valley narrows again before reaching Grein located on the edge of the Strudengau.
