Hello, i took up cycling again 2 year ago and would now like to cycle the Danube from Passua to Vienna, any tips and advice would be more than welcome. I'm planning on going independently not through a company.
I found that it was impossible to do online or by telephone but I called in at on of the main stations in Vienna, the one nearest to Praterpark, and booked the tickets at the ticket office. It is long winded but the ticket clerk came up with the goods. I think that I got back from Budapest to Passau using three trains. The beauty of the DB ticketing system is that you are given a summary of the train services which includes the platform numbers where the trains depart from.I've read the earlier chat with interest, since I'm planning to cycle from Passau to Budapest in July, to continue the fantastic trip I did from Donaueschingen to Passau two years ago (again, just after the floods). I'll be travelling by car from my home near Malaga to Passau, then leaving the car at the B&B I've booked for the start and finish of my trip. But I'm getting frustrated trying to book my return journey from Budapest by train. DB say they can´t issue tickets to include my bike. Bearing in mind that I'd have to change trains four times, dare I take a chance on space for bikes being available at each stage? Any help or advice appreciated!
