Romans bike path
Passau-Innviertel-Attersee-Wels-Enns-Danube - 242 km
There are many ways to approach the Romans. One of the most beautiful leads over the Römerradweg from Passau to Enns.
For almost half a century, the Romans settled in the provinces of Noricum and Raetia, which also included parts of Upper Austria and Bavaria. Despite the end of the reign of 500 AD, they left a lasting legacy to the region: culture and way of life had become deeply embedded in everyday life and people's consciousness.
Here and there these traces can still be seen today. It is especially nice to follow them on the Römerradweg, which leads from Passau across the Innviertel and the Salzkammergut into the foothills of the Alps. The goal is Enns, the former Legionsortort Lauriacum, where in 2018 a national exhibition dedicated to the subject.
And now: what are you waiting for? Saddle up your bike, get on the bus and go searching for clues! Feel culture and nature. Discover something new, exciting and surprising. The Romans are still there, just waiting to be discovered by you.
