Donaudurchbruch, Kelheim

4.8
#1 of 7 in Wildlife in Lower Bavaria
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. Plan your visit to Donaudurchbruch and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Kelheim route planning site.
