We are a family of 5 from New Zealand, and, having just finished our very first cycle tour, we are looking to our next adventure on two wheels.
Our first tour was following the Rhein, going downstream, predominantly through Switzerland. This was 11 days long with 1 rest day, and just right for us. For our next trip, we would love to follow the Danube, and imagine we will probably start in Austria. We are just starting to plan and would love any advice Warm Showers community members can offer.
Tour to be about 2 weeks long, but up to three weeks maximum.
End in Serbia where we have friends. Keen to travel through Austria, Slovakia and Croatia. Flat to downhill route ideally (we have a 6 year old, so it needs to be achievable for her).
We need to get to a staring point - I'm guessing in Austria and we are currently based in Luzerne, Switzerland. How do we cheaply get to a starting point on the Danube and where do you recommend beginning the route?
Are there any areas/landmarks/activities that you feel are a 'must-see'?
How is it camping in these countries? Any experience travelling this route yourself?
