The Danube Cycleway Vol 1: from the source in the Black Forest to Budapest
The first in a two-volume set, this Cicerone guidebook covers cycling the first 1270km from the river's source in the Black Forest to Budapest. This is the first half of a 2987km long-distance cycle route that follows the entire course of the Danube, Europe's second longest river.
The Danube Cycleway has become the most popular holiday cycle touring route in mainland Europe. Part one leads you on 23 stages through Germany, Austria, Slovakia and Hungary, visiting spectacular gorges, hilltop castles, vineyard-clad hillsides and medieval towns. Suitable for all levels of cyclist, the mainly traffic-free route visits the great cities of Vienna and Bratislava before arriving in the Hungarian capital, Budapest.
Parts of this route are on Eurovelo Route 6 'The Rivers Route', a long-distance cycling route running 2,270 miles (3,653km) along the courses of some of Europe's major rivers- from the Atlantic coast of France to the city of Constanța on the Black Sea.
The guidebook includes maps, guidance on the plentiful accommodation and places to stop for food and drink en route, as well as details on the sights to see along the way, making it the perfect companion to the Danube Cycle Way.
Includes access to free GPX files of the routes.
