    Just finished a bike tour through Germany, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, & Austria

    Package deal. Self guided. All the hotel rooms were booked in advance and the luggage was shuttled between stops so all we had to carry was what we wanted for the day. Cycling distances were very light averaging about 28 miles per day on some of the nicest bicycle paths you will ever see.

    Blogged about it here:

    (The blog is about the whole trip. The first actual bike content is the post above)

    Had a great time. Weather wasn't too bad. Saw lots of cool stuff. Seriously, if you like to ride enough to read this forum, you're insane if you don't do something like this at least once.

    I'm glad to see this has returned. Significant activities of my fellow 50+ers are always of interest.

    I even have the bike for a tour of Austria. I hear there is a nice bike path along the Danube.

    We spent a couple of hours in Liecthenstein because we rode slowly and stopped for a bit to take pictures. It's only about 22km wide! We'd have stayed longer but it wasn't time for another meal

    Isn't touring the cat's meow? We did Austria a few years ago, and yes, Europe is the place to tour.

    Thanks for sharing on this forum (the only one I visit). I have toured along the Danube, Salzach, Mosel and Rhine rivers so I can relate to your experience.

    Donau Radweg [Danube Cyclepath] is a great ride. All down stream from Donaueschingen in the Black Forest to Vienna in Austria.
