Overview
This is an Active tour of 8 Days from/to Munich on E-bikes covering Regensburg & Passau
Detailed Itinerary

Today take the train to Donauwörth, where your tour begins. Donauwörth, where the formerly important trading path between Nuremberg and Augsburg crossed the Danube. Splendid town houses remind us even today of the significance and riches this town once enjoyed.

You cycle along well-established paths through the foothills of the Franconian Alb to Neuburg, where we can recommend taking a stroll through the charming old town or a visit to the castle, towering
magnificently over the town. Today's destination is Ingolstadt with its old fortifications. It is also where the Bavarian Purity Law for beer was passed over 500 years ago.

You cycle through Danube meadowland, almost entirely right alongside the river, to Bad Gögging. Mother Nature has a special treat in store a little further on - the Danube Gap at Weltenburg Monastery, where the Danube
curves its way through massive Jura rocks. Fortify yourself in the monastery beer garden before catching your boat, which takes you through the Gap to Kelheim

Before you set off to Regensburg, it's worth making the effort to cycle up to the Hall of Liberation where you have incredible views of the area. Continue at a more leisurely pace on to Regensburg, where you reach the most northerly point of the Danube. This town is considered Germany's
best-preserved city and has been declared a UNESCO Heritage Site.

The Danube curves its way gracefully through the wide expanse of the countryside and you cycle alongside. Take a short break at Walhalla, which King Ludwig I had built, before setting off for today's destination at Straubing, the capital of the "Gäuboden" region. Every year in summer, the popular Gäubodenfest is celebrated here.

Soon after setting off, you reach Bogen, which is famous for the finding of a statue of the pregnant Madonna. Continuing on you go through Pfelling and Mariaposching to finally arrive at the gate to the Bavarian Forest: Deggendorf, Gothic and Baroque characterise the old town.

Today's route includes the small historic town of Vilshofen, which you might have heard of in connection with the CSU Chairman, politician Strauss' Ash Wednesday speech. You will soon reach your destination of the three rivers town and former diocesan town of Passau. Let your tour come to a pleasant end with a walk through the old town.
