The Danube - A River of Peoples and Cultures

A journey to the Danube is always a journey through European history. Like almost no other, Europe's second longest river has moved peoples and cultures. Stone Age hunters and Roman legionnaires, emperors and kings as well as rich citizens and medieval traders have all left their traces along the course of the river.

Over the course of time, beautiful cities grew up along the Danube's banks, with sights of impressive cultural diversity. All architectural styles, from the Gothic and Renaissance to the Baroque, are represented by significant historical monuments. These cultural treasures are embedded in an extremely varied landscape which has retained a great deal of its original beauty.

The Danube - A Holiday Region to awaken all the Senses

Holidaymakers who are especially appreciative of culture and nature can look forward to some unforgettable holiday experiences along the Danube. The young Danube between Donaueschingen to Ulm is a real wonder child and particularly suitable for cyclists and people travelling by boat. Major festivals focussing on the Danube and its history will lead you astray between Ulm and Kelheim. And finally between Kelheim and Passau the Danube becomes a great river. The diverse triburaries also invite you to come and stay: The Danube is joined from the south the Lech, the Isar and the Inn and from the north by the Altmühl and the Regen. Wherever you go, you will experience traditional hospitality along with exquisite specialities to eat and drink - enjoy the Danube as a festival for all the senses.
