The Tour

Wachau - based in one hotel

Time to savour: The starting point of your bike tours is the medieval town of Krems. Let your mind roam free while cycling past the charming vineyards of the Wachau region, discover the orchards in the Mostviertel (perry district) and the enchanted landscape of the Waldviertel (forest district). Explore the region along the Danube with the magnificent Melk Abbey, the picturesque town of Dürnstein and the Roman town of Tulln. The Lower Austrian capital St. Pölten also has a lot to offer. Take a break at one of the many Heurigen wine taverns when it’s time to say: "Ausgsteckt 'is" – the wine is tapped. This tour "Wachau - based in one hotel" runs along excellent bike paths and, despite the hilly landscape, it’s also suitable for less experienced cyclists.
