The Danube Bike Path (Donauradwanderweg) in Wachau wine country, near Spitz.  There were many Heurigen (family-run, vineyard "restaurants") serving good local wine, and simple meals.  The wine was cheap, cold, and very refreshing.  The trail follows the Danube river valley through many old, scenic towns, past castles and churches.  There were many other Austrians enjoying the bike trail, most carrying packs for at least an overnight journey.
