Am Donauradweg

At the Danube cycle track on the right bank we approach Wallsee.

Before the village Wallsee we have crossed the Danube at the dam "Wallsee - Mitterkirchen". The dam wall was just repaired, the bridge was closed, but for cyclists there was a ferry.


This is how the main square of Wallsee looks like. The picture comes from a hike on the Way of St. James.

Wallsee is famous for its castle:

From 1895 it was inhabited by Archduchess Marie Valerie, a daughter of Emperor and Elisabeth, with her husband, Archduke Franz Salvator. On June 11, 1895, Marie Valerie and Franz Salvator bought the palace from its then owner, Duke Alfred of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, and had it completely renovated. After completion, the couple made their festive entry into the castle on the Danube on September 4, 1897.

The castle is still owned by the family today and is not open to the public.

Donaukraftwerk Wallersee-Mitterkirchen

At the Danube power plant, it is possible to cross the Danube unless rehabilitation work is in progress.
