You cycle upstream along the Danube to Kelheim to the water mouth of river Altmühl. Here you go by boat through the spectacular Danube opening to monastery Weltenburg. Goal is Abensberg/Bad Gögging where already the Romans made use of the hot springs.

Today you cycle from river Danube through the ancestral Danube valley to river Altmühl. Here you will find the impressing lump of rocks which made valley Altmühltal so famous. Eichstätt was developed through bishops to a baroque residence.
