The next day continued apace through
flat but pleasant scenery. We stayed the night at the
Donau Hotel in Donauworth.
The hotel was family owned and recently refurbished.
It was more friendly and flexible, as well as cheaper,
than the more starred hotels we had been using so far.
They had a washing machine and dryer for guests. This
was becoming an issue because Laundromats seemed to
be uncommon in the area.
We walked to the station and checked out the ticket
machine. Luckily because it took half an hour and the
help of various passers by to figure out how to use
The main problem was that you can pre-purchase ordinary
tickets but we did not know bicycle tickets can only
be bought on the day of travel.
