We cycled by the Danube from Passau in Germany to Vienna, staying on a boat when not cyclingt.We booked through Rad&Reisen.
Being 'gentle' cyclists we were wary of the distances to be covered and the terrain but we needn't have worried it was amazing and thanks to our excellent on board guide who gave us verbal instructions backed up by video and a good manual to follow when we were cycling it was a very stress free experience. We cycled and cruised through some beautiful countryside and visited historic cities with ease.
The bikes were well serviced and comfortable (large saddles), after an excellent breakfast and collection of your packed lunch the boat crew were waiting each morning to give you your bike and make any fine adjustments. Meeting up with the boat in the afternoon the bikes were taken from you and parked on the boat while you enjoyed afternoon tea and cake.
The evening meals on the boat were excellent and the crew were great fun, they entertained us well!
The cabins on board were adequate although as you would expect storage was compact. There was constant hot water and a very good shower.
There were places of interest to visit each day including a wonderful day and a half in Vienna both cycling and using the open top buses and a very enjoyable concert
We booked our own flights to Munich and train to Passau it was easy and a very reasonable price.
