Equipped with a bike, a map and a packed lunch, you will travel to the Wachau after your arrival. No matter whether you choose the right or left bank of the Danube, you will discover beautiful places for a picnic on each side. Maybe you are so ambitious to drive to Melk on one side and back to Krems on the other bank. On the other hand, there are beautiful ruins to explore such as the ruin back house in Spitz. There is also the possibility to set a ferry across the Danube. In a nutshell, a day that you can design as you please. The bikes are delivered to the hostel in the morning and picked up again in the evening and are therefore available from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
