Between Donau and Balaton – Looking for the river

Vienna! The beautiful city with its churches, cathedrals, palaces, monuments, museums! The Sacher Torte! A city that has lot to offer when you love culture and history!

Well… we didn’t visit it.

Lars and I had both visited the city extensively in our younger years and we didn’t feel like going back. We didn’t want to go to the touristic places. We didn’t wanted to be with the crowds. We wanted to do something else. What about the following the Donau from Vienna to Bratislava? You never know what we could discover!

We started our exploration in small villages like Haslau an der Donau and Regelsbrunn. There is not a lot to see there; they are like any other village with pubs, shops and a church. But they happen to be located at the waterside and that is what attracted us to them. Actually, the Donau is a lot narrower here than we had expected. But it is still big enough for the local population to go canoeing and to do some fishing.
