Donausteig


Hiking in the Realm of Danube Sagas

Biking along the Danube. Almost everyone has heard of it at least once. Hiking along the Danube? This idea is still a novelty, but extremely attractive. The Donausteig, which runs right through the Bavarian-Upper Austrain Danube Valley from Passau to Grein, has offered a network of hiking paths to be proud of since 2010: 450 kilometres of paths on both banks, 40 Donausteig tours through the interior. And a legendary setting in the truest meaning of the word.
