Relaxation Oasis: Cycling from Rotterdam to Romania – Day 40


On the 40th day of our cycling adventure from Rotterdam to Romania, the journey led us into the historic city of Passau from the tranquil Vilshofen an der Donau. However, this day was not just about the miles covered on our bikes; it was a day of indulgence and relaxation as we explored the PEB Sauna World and enjoyed the amenities it had to offer.

Cold Morning Pedal into Passau:

The morning ride from Vilshofen an der Donau into Passau greeted us with a crisp, cold air. Bundled up against the chill, we pedaled through the picturesque landscapes, eager to explore the cultural richness that awaited us in Passau.

Quick Stop for Sustenance:

Before delving into the historical wonders of Passau, we made a quick pit stop for sustenance at a Subway sandwich shop. A warm, hearty meal provided the energy needed for the day’s adventures.

Indulging in PEB Sauna World:

Our destination for the day was the PEB Sauna World, a haven of relaxation and rejuvenation. Spending a leisurely 9 hours at the sauna world, we immersed ourselves in the diverse sauna rooms, each offering a unique experience. From traditional saunas to aromatic steam rooms, we explored the variety that PEB had to offer.

Refreshingly Cool Dips:

To complement the warmth of the saunas, we indulged in a refreshing swim in the indoor pool. The clear waters provided a perfect contrast to the sauna heat, revitalizing our senses. The poolside atmosphere and the invigorating dip set the stage for a day of complete relaxation.

Slides and Jacuzzi Bliss:

The sauna world extended beyond traditional amenities, featuring exhilarating slides that added an element of fun to our day. With childlike enthusiasm, we embraced the thrill of the slides numerous times. To cap off our indulgent day, we reclined in the jacuzzi, letting the warm bubbles soothe away any residual tension.

Reflections on Day 40:

Day 40 marked a departure from the traditional cycling routine, offering a respite in the form of the PEB Sauna World. It was a day of pampering, unwinding, and embracing the therapeutic benefits of heat and water. As we reflected on the day, we recognized the importance of taking moments to relax and rejuvenate amidst the physical challenges of our cycling journey.


Cycling into Passau from Vilshofen an der Donau on Day 40 became more than just a city exploration; it transformed into a day of indulgence at the PEB Sauna World. As we pedaled into the historical heart of Passau and later surrendered to the therapeutic embrace of saunas, pools, and slides, Day 40 became a unique chapter in our cycling adventureโ€”a day where relaxation took center stage.
