Danube D7 – Esztergom-Szentendre

Ferries Ferries are something nice to experience. It not only gives you a brief pause while you wait, but also gives you a perspective on the width of the river. In this trip we experience different ferry trips. Probably our most memorable was back on Day 1, when we came to a ferry stop near Haslau ...

Danube D6 – Komárom-Esztergom

This was by far the most amusing part of the trip. The path The road follows the Danube floodbank most of the way, therefore it is the closest road to the river we’ve followed so far. We started the day early in the morning to avoid the Sun and the noon heat. Around noon we ...

Danube D5 – Győr-Komárom

Leaving Győr we followed the Eurovelo signs through the fields. On the fields you have plenty opportunities for pictures such as a close-up of a massive sunflower head or, as in my case, a weird plant that seemed a little bit suspicious. After a while we hit the 200km mark. Komárom Komárom is an interesting ...

The path Our path was once more very well paved, and isolated from the main road. This time we followed a larger road which made the road a bit less scenic than the other days. Győr Győr was full of life and our hotel was located in a square near the pedestrian city centre. This ...

Danube D3 – Bratislava-Mosonmagyaróvár

Leaving Bratislava Leaving Bratislava you’ll find a cycle path along the river that is perfectly paved. One thing that impressed me is the way you cross the river. There is a bike path underneath the bridge that is exclusive for cars. This is a great solution, as it doesn’t require a new bridge and also ...

Danube D2 – Vienna-Bratislava

This route is part of the Eurovelo 6 that runs from Nantes (FR) to Constanţa (RO). Understandably we got excited with anticipation when we saw our first sign right outside Vienna, as we have planned for this already for a while. The path is perfect in this part of the route. Most of the route ...

Danube D1 – Vienna

Our first bike trip! I started bike commuting when I moved to Paris back in 2007. After a couple of short bike trips following the Loire river, I’ve finally convinced Claudine to try our first trip. We flew from Paris to Vienna on our own. Since this was our first trip, we decided to hire Eurobike, ...
