Munich ↠ Passau
Passau ↠ Linz ↠ Grein ↠ Krems an der Donau ↠ Vienna (2 nights)
↠ Bratislava ↠ Györ ↠ Esztergom ↠ Budapest (2 nights)
Forget the stress of everyday life, take a little break to spend a few days in fabulous landscapes !
750 km by bike in 8 days, that is to say 94 km on average per day, this represents a physical and sporting challenge which is not within everyone´s reach !
However, the EuroVelo 6 cycle path runs along the Danube, is flat all the way, and frequent stops to visit towns, villages and natural sites along the route make it perfectly accessible with a minimum of preparation. Especially since we will sleep in comfortable hotels, with quality services.
The regions crossed offer very different landscapes, and all compete in beauty and interest. Some stopovers are essential, such as the 3 national capitals, the others were chosen for their particular interest.
By crossing 4 countries, we are going to discover as many peoples, cultures, traditions, gastronomies,... In the end, it's a wonderful collective adventure with the guarantee of getting back in great shape, with lots of images and memories in mind !

THE BIKE GUIDE, very useful...
* The bike guide is responsible for leading and managing the group throughout the different stages of the Munich - Budapest Bike Tour. He speaks several languages, including English.
* He is your first interlocutor for all subjects related to cycling (itinerary monitoring, small repairs,...).
* He carries the first aid kit and, if necessary, activates external services (insurance, mechanical repair, rescue,...).
* Always with the group, he regulates cadence so that everyone arrives at the end of the stage. But each one is free to ride with the group or solo, to meet the group later in the day or in the evening at the hotel.
* He takes care of check-in and check-out in hotels, restaurant orders, border crossing procedures, access to tourist sites.
* Last but not least... he gives you some info about the country, the regions crossed, or even the places visited (when there is no local professional guide).
