With his famous composition „On the beautiful, blue Danube“ Johann Strauss has left a piece of music with the highest popularity, giving the Danube an important focus as a lifeline of Central Europe. Every year on New Year’s Eve, the famous “Danube Waltz” has been ringing for over 150 years, making us dance into a happy new year.
As the days grow longer and the natural landscapes attract hikers and cyclists, the regions along the Danube offer many options for excursions. In addition, the cideries in Austria and the beer gardens in Bavaria begin to open their doors again. A cold drink and a shady spot to cool off are just what’s needed to get you back on your feet.
