Following the route from of the River Danube in the Black Forest to Budapest, this Cicerone Guide to The Danube Cycle Way by Mike Wells traces this popular holiday cycle touring route, with its magnificent scenery, fascinating places to visit throughout its length and a wide cultural diversity.
It is not unusual to sit in a wayside bar and hear seven different languages being spoken at the same time, but not one of them is likely to be English. It is high time this changed. This guide aims to introduce the Danube Cycle Way not only to keen long-distance cyclists but also to people who have never experienced the joys of this kind of journey.
The fact that the majority of the route is on dedicated, clearly signed cycle tracks means that it is perfect for whole families to enjoy. Although the guide divides the length of the cycle way into 29 suggested stages, a plentiful amount of low-priced accommodation throughout the entire length of the route means that each day's journey can be tailored to cyclists' needs. The way is almost free of hills, includes visits to monasteries, castles, museums, and ancient cities including Vienna, Bratislava and Budapest, as well as picturesque villages, and provides adventurous cyclists with a month's sheer pleasure.
