1. Day: Ulm

Individual arrival and accommodation.

2. Day: Ulm - Günzburg (approx. 30 km)

We begin our bicycle tour after a short culture walk through the old town with Ulm Minster, cycling through the Friedrichsau and via Thalfingen to our first destination, Günzburg.

3. Day: Günzburg - Donauwörth (approx. 66 km)

Today we cycle via Reisensburg, Offingen, Gundelfingen and Lauingen into the old imperial and university town of Dillingen. Via Höchstädt we reach the border town of Donauwörth at the “Dreistammesecke” (corner of the tribes of Swabia, Franconia, and Bavaria).

4. Day: Donauwörth - Ingolstadt (approx. 58 km)

We leave the former Fugger city and cycle past Bertoldsheim Castle to Neuburg. On we go through Grünauer Forest to Ingolstadt with the Liebfrauenmünster, one of the most beautiful hall churches in South Germany.

5. Day: Ingolstadt - Bad Gögging (approx. 40 km)

We cycle along the Paar River to Vohburg and, passing the impressive steam power plant of the Isar-Amper-Werke Company, head along the Au Cycle Path via Neustadt to Bad Gögging, where you can indulge yourself with a visit to the well-known Limes spa.

6. Day: Bad Gögging - Regensburg (approx. 45 km)

Past the Roman Fort of Abusina, our journey leads us to Weltenburg (oldest monastery in Bavaria). Here we can board a Danube steam ship, which takes us - past the Liberation Hall on top of the mountain Michelsberg - to Kelheim, from which we continue on our bikes towards Regensburg.

7. Day: Regensburg - Straubing (approx. 53 km)

Crossing the Nibelungen Bridge and Walhalla-Alley, we reach the sign-posted bicycle route “Tour de Baroque” and cycle to Donaustauf. Walhalla, the “Temple of German Honour”, stands out visibly from afar overlooking the Danube Valley. We continue on the Danube dam past the barrage of Geisling, and through the floodlands of the Old Danube River to our destination, Straubing, which is renowned for its Baroque middle-class houses and picturesque city square. It has also reached worldwide fame for the “Roman Treasure Trove” at the Gäuboden museum.

8. Day: Straubing - Deggendorf (approx. 40 km)

Today we cycle onwards through the flat Danube Valley. Via Oberalteich we reach Bogen at the foot of the precipitous Bogenberg mountain. The path leads us farther to Metten, where the twin steeples of the church are clearly illuminated against the soft hilly landscape in good weather. The Benedictine Monastery, which includes the library and the prominent Baroque church with paintings by Asam, are especially worth seeing. Today’s place of accommodation is Deggendorf, the portal to the Bavarian Forest.

9. Day: Deggendorf - Passau (approx. 60 km)

We continue to follow the „Tour de Baroque” via Niederaltaich, one of the oldest Benedictine Monasteries in Bavaria, to the small village of Winzer. Smaller increases alternate with descents from Osterhofen onward. We cycle on the left side of the Danube up to the hydro-electric power plant of Kachlet. After crossing the Danube we reach the history-charged city of three rivers, Passau. With this Baroque city, which is impressively situated between the Danube, Inn and Ilz River, our tour reaches its final peak.

10. Day: Passau

Individual departure or extension of trip.
