The route from Rajka to Mohács along the Danube river is known for its outstanding natural and cultural attractions. The Roman 'Limes' along the Danube, the fortresses of Komárom and Komarno, the natural landscape of the Danube Bend and the banks of the Danube in Budapest are all important heritage attractions offering visitors enjoyable diversions. The whole Hungarian section of the Danube is protected as a Natura 2000 Site providing endangered species with vital habitats, such as the famous Gemenc Forest.
Public Transport and Bicycles in Hungary
In Hungary, bicycles can be transported on almost all trains. The Hungarian railroad network is quite extensive and regional trains also reach many very small villages. Bicycles can be transported by train within Hungary for a small surcharge on routes marked by a bicycle icon on the timetable. Bicycle places are limited, and different rules apply to the different trains. Group bicycle transport (at least six bikes) should be planned and reserved at least seven days in advance. Only small bikes can be transported without an additional ticket. The fares also depend on the distance.
There are also several ferries available along the route (Szob, Vac). The timetables are only available in Hungarian (www.vacikomp.hu/). The last ferry leaves early (8 pm), and the ferry at Szob does not operate in winter (it does not operate from 15 October onwards, see www.ipolytours.hu/komp.php).
