Monastery Weltenburg reviews
Extensive monastery complex in the heart of Bavaria. Great monastery beer, which you can enjoy in peace in the courtyard of the monastery. Boarding place for a boat on the Danube. more »
Beautiful place! Make sure you bring comfortable shoes and warm clothing this time of the year. Amazing atmosphere for the entire family. You can walk up the hill or take the boat ride. No... more »
The boat ride up to the Abbey on the Danube is an absolute must. It is so beautiful and serene. The inside of the church is spectacular and a little different in that you have St. George up on the main altar. They are famous for their dark beer here and their pretzels are great. Highly recommended.
The beer was good but unfortunately the rain came down the whole time we were there. The flood levels were interesting. On a nice day this would have been much better.
