Vienna naar Passau

September 03 - 10 / 2022
Last September, 24 friends from West Michigan biked along the Danube. Each day there was beautiful scenery and our guide, Ilse, was very knowledgeable about the history and interesting places that we visited. The Merlijn was our home for seven nights. The rooms where very comfortable abd had everything you needed. The food was delicious. Each morning there was something different for breakfast and the dinners were top notch. The barge was spotless, everything looked like it had just been painted or cleaned. The owners, Coen and Christina were very attentive to our every need. This was our third trip with the Merlijn and everything just keeps getting better.
