Beautiful boat ride

We took the boat from Kelheim thru the gorge to the Weltenburg monastery. Nice towering rock walls and beautiful scenery.

We celebrated my Mom's 80th birthday on a Sunday and one of my brothers organized a brunch boat trip. You need to make reservations to book a table. The trip started at 10 AM and lasted until 5 PM. The trip took us upriver to the Donaudurchbruch then turned around and went back south to Kelheim and then up the... More

A wonderful place to enjoy with the family, alone, by walking, by bike or by ship :) the "kloster" is just at 1/2 h by walk and you can eat typical Bavarian food and drink the oldest beer in the world

I suspect that if you cruise the entire length of the Danube, this might be one of the ten most memorable stretches, but certainly not among the top five. It was a nice way to spend an hour on a Sunday.

The cruise from Kelheim to Weltenburg is 40 minutes upstream to explore the 400-foot chalk cliffs and dramatic scenery of the Danube Narrows. The river cuts a pass through the mountains, which is one of the most beautiful section of Danube River. The cruise ends at Weltenburg Abbey, founded at the beginning of the 7th century, one of Germany’s oldest... More

Absolutely amazing construction, beautiful art work. I got there via one of the boats. A great way to spend a 3-4 hours one afternoon.

We took a boat from Weltenburg to Kelheim. It was possible to take our bicycles on board (extra fee) which was very convenient. The cruise was pretty short and a bit pricey. But because the views were really wonderful I would not hesitate to make the tour again or recommend it to anyone.

The boat from Kelheim to Weltenburg takes ca 40 minutes upstream, and less downstream. You can sit inside or outside, and it is possible to buy beer, wine, coffee, cakes etc on board. Very nice views from the boat, beautiful scenery a long the river. Information about the river and surroundings is in both german and english. I can understand... More

Some people love the offered food and drinks at the Weltenburg Monastry before they are looking for their tent at the other bank of the river - I hope you dont! It´s not to be "schön blau in der Donau" but "schöne blaue Donau"!
