Danube region in Upper Austria
In the Danube region we are free. All alone we determine the pace, the way and the destination. And everything in between. How nice it is when we even have company: from the mossy-fresh scent of the Danube, on whose banks we are moving, from its quiet murmur and gentle lapping.
Of impressive sights that greet us from afar and invite us to make a stop. Of unforgettable encounters with people who live and work in the Danube region and give the Danube a face, a voice.
And of course of the nature that shows itself along the Danube in Upper Austria and is constantly changing. No two stretches are alike. Only the river, a constant driving force, remains at our side.
And gradually we get into flow with the Danube - while cycling along the Danube Cycle Path or hiking along the Donausteig Hiking Path -, let ourselves be driven by it, discover magical things along its banks. The impressions become more and the head becomes lighter. What remains is the feeling of being free and the longing to return here soon and accompany the Danube a bit on its way.
There is so much to discover!
