Sept 15, 2017-Sept 23, 2017 - Bike and Barge along the Danube
Sept 24, 2017-Sept 28, 2017 - Sightsee in Berlin, Germany

The first portion of our trip is a 4 country self-guided bike ride along the Danube River - which is the most popular European bike and barge trip being offered by our outfitter. Our hotel and restaurant for 7 nights and 8 days is our barge called the MS Normandy. Our days will be spent riding on well-marked bike paths along the Danube River through Austria, Germany, Slovakia, and Hungary. The bike paths will take us past castles, Danube National Park, the Hungarian Danube Bend, and the capital cities of Vienna, Bratislava, and Budapest. Along the way, we will stop to see some local sights, perhaps do a little shopping, grab a snack, etc. before meeting our barge in the late afternoon/evening where we can unwind and socialize with other passengers before retiring to our double occupancy cabins on the barge. Where will we get our meals, you ask? The Barge is also our restaurant where we will get three great meals a day (breakfast and dinners will be served on the barge, and we will have sack lunches while riding).

After the bike and barge, we're off to Berlin for an additional 4 nights and 5 days sightseeing, bike riding, taking a river cruise, visiting museum island, Checkpoint Charlie, The Holocaust Museum, The Brandenburg Gate, etc. Meals for this portion of the trip are NOT included in the overall cost.

Cost for Bike and Barge = $1975 double occupancy. (Single Supplements are available for an additional $400) Cost for Berlin portion of the trip is $527. Airfare to/from the United States is additional. You are welcome to join us on either portion of the trip, or the whole thing.

The bike and barge is currently full, buy please contact Bev to put your name on the waiting list as cancellations do happen.
