Passau to Vienna
There are few cycle tour destinations as renowned as the Danube Cycle Path, and for good reason. The Danube river has been a transport hub for millennia, serving countless civilizations in that time. That has resulted in what we see today, a world class bike trail with exceptional infrastructure. It also means that it is a region steeped in history with a wide variety of castles, forts, monasteries and ruins lining the trail.
Starting in Passau, Germany and finishing in Vienna, Austria the Danube cycle path largely follows the course of the river itself. This translates to almost entirely flat, dedicated cycle lanes for the entire duration. It is extremely approachable for those of modest fitness and families. It's also a very well balanced tour, offering a beautiful contrast between large cities and stunning mountainous views along the way.
