Passau - Vienna - Tour 2014

A pleasure trip

Welcome  to our Radltour!


Sept. 17th - Sept. 20th 2014 



Participants:

Ernstl
Raimund - vulgo the Chefe
Heide
Iris, age 66, retired
Elfi Ski

We did it again...: as nearly every year, we did the fall bicycle Tour Passau (Germany) to Vienna (Austria).
This time our Group has been complete. Raimund, vulgo the Chefe has joined us. He came with the train to Passau. We have carried one of our bicycles to Passau. After many complaints, he accepted this bicycle.
Our faith have been not so good this day, as Heide was in charge to carry Raimund's bicycle to Passau. Unfortunately she left it at Wels were we changed the train. The bicycle has been leaning for hours unwatched at the platform. At Passau: a big surprise: of course - no bicycle for Raimund. Telephone companies made a good business. Our first attempt to contact the German trains station officer was "we have no contact to the Austrian railroad company - everything is automated"... . Finally Heide found a guy at the ticketing counter who has private contact with a guy at Wels, were the bicycle actually was. Success! his guy checked, and the bicycle was still there. Unbelievable in this times we life. Heide went back with one of the next trains to Wels, picked up the bike and followed us to our accommodation.

Our tour continued smoothly the next days in extreme good weather condition.

We have modified our tour a little in order to check for "new" accommodations.

Enjoy the taken pictures and the report.

Good luck to our followers.

The very good weather in this years fall made us ride down the Danube valley.

Starting at the border city of Passau, whereas the river Danube enters Austrian territory, down to the Austrian capital city Vienna.

A very popular bike path.

Very good direction signs, very good and easy to find accommodations and food supply.
