Donaudurchbruch, Kelheim

4.8
Experience a natural reserve--bestowed with the Bavaria's "most beautiful geotopes" award by the Bavarian ministry of the environment--and see a religious site surrounded by nature when you visit Donaudurchbruch. A boat ride through the Gorge to the Abbey (food and drinks available on board) provides camera-ready natural views. Once you arrive, explore the monastery, where you can take in the ornate decorations and speak with the monks about their life there. Take one of the many nature paths through the area, or walk to Kelheim or Klösterl, an old hermitage and one of the few rock-hewn churches of Europe with a natural roof.

  • Drove through several times already, each time again an experience to see the beauty and power of nature here. In the summer, I can fully recommend a Bott drive!

  • If you are in Kelheim or environment, you shouldn't miss the Danube Gorge. Best to start by excursion boat from Kehl home donauaufwärts to the monastery of Weltenburg. The karst walls rise up impressively to the left and to the right. On the way back - after a visit to the monastery church and retreat in the monastery brewery - you can enjoy once again this geological uniqueness on the Danube, as well as the views of the Befreiungshalle high above Kelheim.

  • Oulisse can confirm from experience, this amount is much less dangerous than Scylla and Charybdis. With a small group in a barge, a chatty boatman at a flow velocity of 2.5 m / sec. by the 20m deep narrow, that brings us close to nature, past on bird breeding grounds, and is highly recommended to all.

  • Beautiful place for hiking. Great view to Danube.
  • A great nature park. Take one of the small wooden boats up the river. You can walk along the Danube all the way to the Durchbruch and then wave for one of these boats to take you through the Durchbruch.
  • Scenic location, nice river cruise
  • Interesting tourist attraction, but not knocks. Done once and rather already there does not come back. Summa summarium worth seeing.
