Donaudurchbruch, Kelheim

4.8
#1 of 6 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 .

  • Recommend a boat trip from Kehlheim to the monastery Weltenburg, here one passes the Danube breakthrough, which is a magnificent natural spectacle. Here is one of the narrowest places with 110 m width and 20 meters deep. The rocks reach a height of 80 meters. From the water, the in nice weather is a great experience,only recommended.

  • The Danube winds its way through the Jura rocks with several arches during the Danube breakthrough. Beautiful view. After the Danube breakthrough, on the route to Kelheim on the left is the Klösterl (guest farm), as well as the home of the local canoe club.
