Technical information

Our Danube cycle tour takes you through the rugged, unspoiled scenery of the Baar, which stretches between the Black
Forest and the Swabian Alb. If the river bed is suddenly very dry - don't worry, the water appears again a bit later. You will
have reached the Danube sinkhole, where the river disappears into the chalkstone bed. Many monasteries, castles and forts
line the path. In Ulm you can climb the world's highest church tower.



Day 1: Individual arrival in Donaueschingen
In Donaueschingen, the Brigach and Breg rivers merge to form the Danube. However the Romans once thought that the
spring in the castle gardens was the source of the Danube. You can still visit the source of the Danube in Donaueschingen
today, right in the park of a very impressive castle, where the Fürstenberg family once lived.

Day 2: Donaueschingen – Mühlheim / Fridingen, approx. 45 / 55 km
The first section is a quick cycle to Immendingen. This is where the Danube sinks into the chalky stone for some 155 days
of the year to flow through an underground cave system south to the Aachtopf, Germany's biggest spring. In Tuttlingen, the
valley narrows and it's now not far to today's destination.

Day 3: Mühlheim / Fridingen – Sigmaringen / Scheer, approx. 45 – 60 km
The chalkstone rocks rise some 100 metres above the cycle path which snakes its way through the rocks here, following the
river. You will keep seeing an old castle on the rocks above - or rather what remains of it. In Sigmaringen there's another
magnificent castle to be discovered, Hohenzollern Castle is still lived in by a noble family and you can go an interesting
guided tour if you like.

Day 4: Sigmaringen / Scheer – Obermarchtal / Ehingen, approx. 50 – 70 km
You follow the course of the river at a leisurely pace to just after Hundersingen, where you should take a break at the
open air museum in Heuneburg and find out all about the life of the Celts. In today's destination, Obermarchtal, a Baroque
treasure waits to be discovered - the former monastery can be visited.

Day 5: Obermarchtal / Ehingen – Blaubeuren – Ulm, approx. 45 – 65 km
Today you cycle along the original course of the Danube, through the valley to Blaubeuren with its famous Blautopf - an
intense Karst spring and the start of a huge system of caves. To shorten this section you can cycle directly along the Danube
to Ulm - and thus save about 10 km. Your destination is Ulm with the highest church tower in the world! It obviously provides
great views.

Day 6: Ulm – Lauingen / Dillingen, approx. 50 / 55 km
Today's section features a succession of little towns, one prettier than the next. You pedal away from the river to raised
ground, safe from flooding. Lauingen is known as the town of towers and you will see Dillingen from afar - thanks to its
stately castle.

Day 7: Lauingen / Dillingen – Donauwörth / Wörnitzstein, approx. 45 / 40 km
Most of the towns here are away from the river on raised, flood-safe ground. Cycle at a leisurely pace through the Danube
meadowland to Donauwörth, situated on the mouth of the Wörnitz. One of the key trade routes between Nuremberg and
Augsburg crossed the Danube here.

Day 8: Individual departure or extension of stay
After breakfast, you start your individual return journey home or extend your stay.
