The gentle hills, all planted with vines, the medieval character of the villages and the banks of the Danube combine to form an incomparable whole in the Wachau.

Due to the mild climate influenced by the Danube, the slopes which are optimally inclined to the sun and the special quality of the primary rock soils, excellent wines thrive in the Wachau, which are appreciated by connoisseurs all over the world.

The most beautiful river valley in Europe can be experienced particularly well by motorbike. Varied landscapes, artistically landscaped vineyards with typical stone walls, wide plains and valuable cultural assets offer themselves to the observer on both banks.

The Wachau has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000.

And even though we should keep away from extensive wine tastings during the day, the country and its people are also a real pleasure. And in the evening we treat ourselves to all that we had to do without during the day for reasons of promilgation.

Experience with us a few wonderful days in one of the most beautiful areas on the Danube.

Day 1: Arrival at our Starthotel - meeting point 18 o'clock in our Starthotel in the area of Passau. Rooms with breakfast are already booked. After the welcome and discussion of the tour we have the possibility to have dinner in a nice restaurant and get to know each other better.

Day 2: Along the Danube to the Wachau

After the Volga, the Danube is the longest river in Europe with a length of 2,888 kilometres. The Danube rises in the Black Forest and flows into the Black Sea, flowing through 6 countries (Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Serbia, Romania) and is the border river for another four countries (Croatia, Bulgaria, Moldova, Ukraine). But hardly any other country is so closely associated with the Danube as Austria, be it the Danube Waltz, the "Danube Monarchy" or even the delicious Danube Waves.

It goes along the Danube to shortly before Linz, which we ride around over the beautiful Mühlviertel. At Grein we follow the banks of the Danube again to our tour centre in the middle of the Wachau.

Day 3: Through the Mostviertel

It's really delicious in the Mostviertel, a fertile region in southwestern Lower Austria. In this area we explore the varied landscape of the Mostviertel, swinging back and forth between orchards, woods and mountain stretches.

A varied tour awaits us via St. Pölten, Kalte Kuchl, the Höllental Road, the Ötscher and Scheibbs.

Day 4: The Vienna Woods

The Wienerwald is a wooded mountain region that extends to the northwest and southwest of the Austrian capital Vienna. It is the most popular local recreation area of the Viennese, it is the green lung of the big city. And it's a splendid cornering area that we'll be exploring extensively.

Day 5: Through the Waldviertel and the Kamptal valley

In the Waldviertel you have the unique opportunity to ride your motorcycle past extraordinary cultural monuments and fascinating landscapes. If you appreciate having the street to yourself and your motorcycle all by yourself, you've come to the right place in the Waldviertel.

It goes over well-known routes such as the Jauerling, the Yspertal, the Bärnkopf, the Dobra reservoir to Horn and over the Kamptal to Langenlois. There we will visit a wine cellar and finish the day in a wine tavern.

Day 6: Back via the Wald- and Mühlviertel

The name of the Upper Austrian Mühlviertel is not - as one might assume - derived from a multitude of mills existing there. No, the rivers "Steinerne Mühl" and "Große" and "Kleine Mühl" are said to have given the river north of the Danube its name. That's why they probably look for mills there in vain. The flax weaving mill once gave the Mühlviertel a certain prosperity, nowadays it is above all the "gentle tourism". A journey through the Mühlviertel district makes the inner clock tick noticeably more comfortably after only a short time.

The tour goes via Ottenschlag, Königswiesen, Freistadt and Rohrbach back to Passau.

Day 7 Individual journey home

After a hearty breakfast, we will start our journey home.

What are Buschenschenken?

Traditionally the Buschenschenke is a farm where a farmer can serve his products (drinks and cold food). The name goes back to the traditional custom of hanging a bouquet of junipers, the so-called "bushes", above the entrance during opening hours.

Only owners or tenants of vineyards or orchards may operate a Buschenschenke. If the operator additionally declares a "free restaurant", he may serve certain warm products such as grilled sausages, meat and poultry, meat and sausage salads as well as bottled beer and non-alcoholic beverages without a certificate of competence.
