Lots to see along the river but I believe it is a bit 'samey' once you've done our stretch, well until you get over the border for a culture change. Being in a valley means there are valley sides to climb in places that should provide variation. Lots of riverside accommodation and certainly in Austria you'll have no trouble booking somewhere and all in English if you need it. We did train from Munich Airport to Pasau and lots of bikes on the regional services but I've no idea about the fast long distance trains - has to be better than UK though!

I saw the bike/boat trip on the internet. Do you have use their hire bikes or could you use your own?
I seem to remember a mention of 21 speed which to me suggests a BSO.
Thanks to everyone for the comments on this.
