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.

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"!

We drove down from Auerbach to Kelheim, took us a while to find the boat landing. It probably would have helped if we google-mapped the town before we went (duh). Anyway, it's right across the street from the big Post Office building. If you get lost, look for the large brown signs with the list of tourist attractions and the... More
