If you like, you can explore the Upper Austrian capital city on the bright yellow "City Express".

Day 3: Linz - Grein

Today, you can either cycle directly along the Danube and take your time enjoying the meadow landscape, or cycle to the fortress of Clam and into the dreamy backcountry of Strudengau. Today's destination is the small town of Grein where you can visit Austria's oldest city theatre and the castle of Greinburg.

Day 4: Grein - Melk - Tulln
Today's stretch of the tour is characterised by various landscapes. The peaceful Strudengau Valley awaits you. The valley widens near Persenbeug. Continue to Melk with its magnificent Baroque Benedictine monastery. Enjoy the Wachau from the deck as you cruise to the garden city of Tulln.

Day 5: Tulln - Vienna
Distance: approx. 33 km
The monastery, Klosternauburg, is situated next to the city gate of Vienna. You can see the dome of the 900 year old gorgeous Baroque building from the distance. Its "Verduner Altar" is a highlight of medieval goldsmith art. The wine town of Kahlenbergerdorf is near the port. After strolling through the vineyards, enjoy the fantastic view from the terrace of the Kahlenberg onto the metropolis.

Day 6: Vienna (Day of Rest)

Discover Vienna! If you like, you can take a city tour by bike or bus (approx. 3.5 hrs.) to experience the most famous parts of the city: The Hofburg Imperial Palace, St. Stephen's Cathedral, and the boulevard leading up to the Vienna State Opera.

Day 7: Wachau - Krems / Emmersdorf
Distance: approx. 28 - 43 km
You won't want to miss out on today's highlight! Be enchanted by the rolling hills dotted with charming little villages, apricot trees, wine terraces, castles, abbeys, and ruins. After your gala dinner, sit back and enjoy the live folklore show on board.
