The Escorted Motorhome Tour

The tour starts in Regensburg, a Medieval city made up of lovely old churches and fine aristocratic houses in the south of Germany, with a 2000-year-old history and World Heritage status. Our second stop is in the beautiful Bavarian Forest National Park  from where we will continue and stay near Passau which lies on the Austrian border at the confluence of the rivers Danube, Inn and Ilz and is widely regarded as one of the most picture-perfect townscapes in Europe. From there we follow the Danube through Austria passing the Engeszell abbey, famous for its liqueurs, cheese and beer, and the Schlögener Schlinge, the famous natural spectacle where the Danube winds itself narrowly around the Schlögenberg Mountain. We continue along the Danube and follow the dramatic stretch of river between Krems an der Donau and Melk, a UNESCO World Heritage Site called the Wachau, and characterised by vineyards, forested slopes, wine-producing villages and imposing fortresses at nearly every bend. The tour ends in Vienna, renowned for its imperial palaces, grandiose buildings and old-world glamour where we have two whole days to explore this wonderful city and its fascinating history and culture.
