On bike and by ferry


Also off the beaten track, there are countless possibilities, from a short cycling trip to a day tour that includes a cultural program. It is particularly attractive to combine muscle strength and hydropower. You can, for example, use the hotel ferry to translate to the north bank of the Danube, cycle to Jochenstein and visit the "Haus am Strom - Nature and Technology in the Danube Valley" experience and exhibition center. From there it goes via the bridge of the power station or once again by ferry to Engelhartszell, with its historical sites. Continuing your trip on the south bank you will return to the Hotel Donauschlinge.

Combined tours by ship and bike are possible thanks to the Danube shipping company Wurm + Köck. If you are taking a bike ride to Linz for a city visit or by boat or a combination tour to Passau, you can experience the wonderful landscape and the diversity of culture from different angles.

From Au on the left side of the Danube, take the bicycle ferry Hotel Donauschlinge to the right bank of the Danube, from where you can continue your journey through the Danube region.
