Look forward to the Bavarian part of the Danube and follow the young stream on a very well developed cycle path. You will pass through the mouths of many tributaries with wonderful wetland biotopes and a rich flora and fauna. Marvel at a very special natural spectacle. Between Weltenburg and Kelheim, the Danube forces its way through high rock walls and thus through the Danube breakthrough. The breathtaking boat trip is incredibly fascinating! On its way through Bavaria, the Danube takes you to many worthwhile residential towns with historic city centres. Magnificent baroque and renaissance buildings as well as cosy beer gardens await your visit.

This trip is perfect for:

  • River fans: cycle along the Danube on your journey.
  • City lovers: Be enchanted by the small towns along the route.
  • Culture seekers: Your cultural well-being will also be catered for on this trip.

Old Town Quarter with Fountain "The Dumpling Thrower's Wife" in Deggendorf

According to legend, Deggendorf was saved from being stormed by the troops of Ottokar of Bohemia in 1266 because the wife of the then mayor put an enemy scout to flight with the help of a dumpling she had just prepared.

Look forward to the Bavarian-Swabian Danube pearl on the Romantic Road and to a romantic stroll through the former Free Imperial City, whose town houses proudly present their neat gables.

Marvel at Bertoldsheim Castle and Stepperg Castle. The highlight of the day is Neuburg, where the most beautiful Renaissance castle on the Danube awaits your visit. Afterwards you cycle through large wooded areas to Ingolstadt, where the old town with its medieval city wall beckons.

Today you follow the Danube Cycle Path to Neustadt and on through hop fields to Bad Gögging. The town actively cultivates its ancient traditions and offers numerous wellness options with its natural moor, sulphur and mineral thermal waters. In Abensberg, you will be tempted by the lovably renovated historic old town. Don't miss the beer garden of the Kuchlbauer brewery with its Hundertwasser tower!

Today you cycle to Weltenburg Abbey. Marvel at the Benedictine abbey, which is one of the most beautiful monasteries in Bavaria, and taste the local specialities in the monastery's own beer garden. A special natural spectacle awaits you on the trip through the Danube bridge by boat (6 km) - certainly a unique experience. Today's stage destination is Regensburg, probably the best-preserved major German city, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site!

Look forward to a rest in Donaustauf and visit the Valhalla, a replica of the Pantheon. Roll leisurely through the wide Danube plain past Wörth Castle to Straubing with its striking city tower.

Today you cycle through Bogen, which gained fame because of its pregnant Madonna found in 1104. Afterwards, you cycle leisurely to the Benedictine Abbey of Metten before reaching Deggendorf, the gateway to the Bavarian Forest. Look forward to a city tour, as Gothic and Baroque characterise the beautiful old town.

On your last cycling stage, you will be amazed by Niederaltaich Monastery, which has been in flames 13 times over the course of time, and the three-river city of Passau. On a boat trip across the Danube, Inn and Ilz, you will discover the city from many sides. What a wonderful finale!

Perhaps you will have time for a stroll through the old town today to visit the cathedral with the largest church organ in the world. Your cycling tour ends after breakfast at the hotel.
