Hotels along the Austrian Danube between Passau and Vienna

We thought it might be handy having an overview over hotels, inns and guest houses between Passau and Vienna. Following list gives you the opportunity to plan your cycling holidays in advance and book the hotels you like. This is certainly a good idea in peak season (July/August) or when expecting unsettled weather. No one likes searching for a place to stay while it is raining. Alternatively, you might only book the first two nights beforehand and decide about the following hotels on a daily basis.

We have chosen places with above-average reviews only and in an appropriate distance to the cycle path. The figures behind the hotel names ("0.2 mi" for example) describe the distance to the cycle path. If an accommodation is located further away and listed here, then for a good reason.
