Here's what people are saying about our bicycling adventures...
“Biking the Danube is a wonderful program. Lectures included information on architecture, art, WWII, the EU countries and economy, customs and holidays, and much more. The biking was relaxing and the countryside beautiful. What a great experience!”
“This program was excellent for anyone who wants to combine physical activity with learning. The other participants were in great shape and this made for an enjoyable experience.”
Centuries ago, “treppelweg,” or towpaths, were laid down along the mighty Danube so that horses could pull barges along the river. This system allowed goods to be transported between the Black Forest and the Black Sea — a 1,777-mile journey. In Germany and Austria, many of these storied paths have today been converted into beautiful bike paths. Follow the “treppelweg” on an unforgettable bike journey that reveals the amazing environments, fascinating folklore and city and village life along the Danube.
