Cycling Region Danube Upper Austria

Discover the land around the Inn and Danube Cycle Paths

You have never seen the Danube like this before: On 15 new circular tours between Schärding and Grein, you not only cycle along the Danube and Inn rivers, but also branch off into the surrounding countryside of the region. On a voyage of discovery through the Danube region, you leave some metres of altitude behind and are rewarded with dreamlike views of the spreading river landscape from the ridges. So why not leave the Danube Cycle Path or Inn Cycle Path and return to the starting point on the river via an elevated loop with completely new perspectives of the countryside along the Danube and Inn?

Tours & Signage

The 15 new tours are designated R1.01 to R1.15 (in reference to the Danube Cycle Path R1) and are signposted with official signposts of the province of Upper Austria. 

At all starting points there are starting point boards with important information and map sections on the tour and further information on the cycle network in the immediate vicinity.

Distinctive metal sculptures reminiscent of fish fins have also been erected at the starting points. These form the entry points to the new tours.

Delightful tours with the e-bike

E-bikes also make it possible to conquer steeper passages at a leisurely pace. The change of perspective from the flat riverside path along the Danube and Inn to higher points in the surrounding countryside allows for fabulous panoramic views and far-reaching vistas over this fascinating landscape. Ferries and bridges connect both riverbanks and complete the comprehensive network of cycle paths in the Danube region in Upper Austria.

Tip: Use e-bike rental points directly in the region. Some accommodations also lend e-bikes to their guests.

Cycling tours with added value

The new cycling tours are particularly suitable for enjoyable cycling excursions with the e-bike and not only lead to natural and cultural treasures worth seeing. They also invite you to meet people: Handicraft businesses with a long tradition, chefs with a great love of enjoyment or producers and direct marketers who are bubbling over with new ideas. Cider that tickles the tongue, chocolates made from hand-scooped chocolate or tasty cheese specialities. For all those who have already cycled along the Danube Cycle Path several times and now want to discover the entire cycling region between the Inn and the Danube.
