The Danube Cycleway Volume 2

From Budapest to the Black Sea

The second of two volumes covering the Danube Cycle Route.


Danube Cycleway Vol 2

This 1717km cycle route follows the lower part of the Danube, Europe’s second longest river, from the vibrant Hungarian capital of Budapest through Hungary, Croatia, Serbia and Romania to the river’s delta on the shores of the Black Sea.

The cycling is generally level with a few gentle gradients, mostly on quiet country roads or riverside flood dykes. The 32 stages vary from 30-100km, with some longer excursions.

Danube Cycleway Vol 2 route

Cycling infrastructure is generally good in Hungary, Croatia and Serbia. In Romania, where there is no waymarking and often long distances between places to sleep and eat, this guidebook gives a detailed route description and a listing of all places offering accommodation.

En route you will see spectacular gorges, medieval fortresses, poignant memorials to the recent Yugoslav civil war, vineyard-clad hillsides and rural areas where crops are still planted and harvested by hand and the main means of transport is the horse and cart.

Off-route excursions enable short visits to be made to Bulgaria, Moldova, Ukraine and the Danube delta.
