The route along either side of the Danube is different because the river is wider and is navigable so people can cycle and stay overnight on a boat which then moves along to their destination for the next night 30 or 40 km further down. However the similarities are that much of it is a dedicated route off road across fields and where it combines with a lightly trafficked road, the separation is clearly marked and very safe. Along the route there are teashops and cafés and bars and artisan workshops in small museums as well as the odd baroque church and Gothic castle to visit. So it is not all cycling but is partly sightseeing. The comparison with the Derwent Valley Mills world Heritage site is not difficult to make.
