Originally a duchy created in 1255, Lower Bavaria is mostly noted for its scenic attractions along the Danube River and the Bavarian Forest. This wooded, low-mountain region extends along the Czech border. The area's patchwork of landscapes stretches from the Danube in the north to the Inn river in the south. The diverse terrain in between suits a variety of outdoor activities. You can explore Lower Bavaria on foot or by bicycle via an extensive network of footpaths and bike trails. The region's rivers also invite sightseeing by kayak or canoe. This is a land of vibrant local festivals, medieval churches and castles, and picturesque towns brimming with history and tradition, all of which add color and interest to visitor itineraries. As an added bonus, Lower Bavaria is the world's leading producer of hops--so it's only natural that the region would have its fair share of beer gardens and breweries.
