The Danube Cycle Way - Donaueschingen to Budapest
John Higginson (Cicerone Guide)
Perfect cycling country
The Danube Cycle Way has become the most
popular holiday cycling route in mainland
Europe. It has magnificent scenery; fascinating places to visit along
its length and a wide cultural diversity. The
way is almost free of hills, includes visits to monasteries, castles, museums and ancient cities as well as
picturesque villages, and provides
adventurous cyclists with a month's sheer pleasure.
- The guide introduces
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.
majority of the route is on dedicated, clearly signed cycle tracks
and is thus perfect for whole families to enjoy.
- The guide divides the 1350km cycle way
into 20 suggested days, though plentiful low-priced accommodation along the route means that each day's journey can be tailored
to cyclists' needs.
Each day's ride is
accompanied by a route map, with additional town plans to show the route of the cycle way in and out
of major towns and cities.
