The Roman Cycle Trail and its stages

The Roman Cycle Trail and its stages

We go to museums. We read books. But nothing is more exciting than actually standing on historic ground or – as it is true for the Roman Cycle Trail – to travel through history. Our time travel starts in Passau and ends in Enns after 242 kilometres of most enjoyable cycling through rolling hills, alongside beautiful rivers and lakes and through charming historical towns. Rest areas along the road will let you catch your breath, information boards explain the everyday life, living conditions and gods of the Romans. Museums and excavation sites beckon passers-by to stay a little longer – or to come back.
