Austria: Along the Danube - paulsmit
'Cycling the Donauradweg.'

Europe's favourite cycling route, the Donauradweg, mostly follows former towpaths. In the old days about sixty heavy horses were needed to tow one boat upstream. The cobbled paths, neglected since the time of the steamboats, were asphalted in the eighties and built the frame of the cycling route from Passau to Budapest ever since. Photo Paul Smit.
