Danube NarrowsRiver Castles and a 9th Century Monastery

An Unforgettable Journey to the Danube Narrows and Altmuehl Valley

This tour takes you to two of Bavaria’s hidden gems, unknown to many international travelers but renowned within Europe. The Danube Narrows is where the famous river cut through a low mountain range, and you take a boat ride along the river past towering cliffs and unspoiled forests. The highlight at the end of the river trip is lunch at the Kloster Weltenburg, the world’s oldest monastery brewery.  The Altmuehl Valley is a lovely stretch of a slow moving tributary with several castles, ruins and the longest wooden bridge in Europe. A visit to the Rosenburg castle with a wonderful falconry show tops off the day.

 Prunn Castle in the Altmuehl ValleyWe also spend time in the city of Kehlheim, where the Danube and Altuehl rivers meet. Kehlheim almost became the capital of Bavaria way back in the 14th century. We will have an inside visit to the impressive 19th century Liberation Hall, which King Ludwig I built to memorialize the victory over Napoleon.

This is one of our ‘Off The Beaten Path’ tours.  It is a lovely, relaxed day trip away from the maddening crowds.
