The boat ride through the gorge was very nice. Comfortable boat with full food service. Unfortunately the water level was too low to go all the way to the Abbey.Without that, not sure if its worth it.

We visited Weltenberg Abbey as a side excursion from our Viking River Cruise. The boat ride thru the Danube narrows was just gorgeous and the Abbey on the river bank is truly a slice of Heaven. After touring the Abbey, enjoy a beer and pretzel...More

The Donaudurchbruch is the tightest part of the Danube you can find. A return ship trip there is really nice as you are sourounded by limestone cliffs and trees.

The church is awesome and the beer was great. Hard to believe the Brewery has been there since 1050. A lot of history in the grounds.

Taking a cruise up and down a short section of the Danube through the gorge to the Benedictine Monastery of Weltenburg is a great way to spend a sunny day. The 45 minute trip runs every half an hour. Plenty of parking and the terminal...More

Having spent the early part of the morning in rather cool, damp conditions, we were so happy to see the sun breaking through the clouds as we boarded the boat which would take us through this dramatic gorge on the Danube. This passage is too...More

The boat makes 45 minutes to get to the Kloster and 20 back. It costs 10.50 the round trip. Nice views and it makes a perfect day trip.

We arrived quite late in Kelheim and only got on the last ship tour. Unfortunately, we could not leave the ship and visit the nearby Monastery with one of the oldest breweries. Still, we enjoyed the tour and admired the beautiful nature. The ships serve...More

Donaudurchbruch - Weltenburger Enge (5 Replies)
Hi We are planning a trip to Germany and have 4 days at the Franconia region - we are going with our 3 kids ages 1, 5 and 7. Is it relevant to visit at Donaudurchbruch- Weltenburger Enge or is it only for a boat trip (which I am not sure we want to take)? what about the Prunn? Thanks

Ok Thank you. So I will ask it this why: If we would like to visit those two places - the Weltenburger Enge and the Prunn with 3 little kids- what can we do there during a full day in the summer? where to start? is there trails for families? are there more attractions to explore the area with our kids?
