We have made a stop at the famous Weltenburg Monastery. The atmosphere of the location directly on the Danube river and the typical Baverian beer garden is worth the visit. We had tried all the beers being offered that day on tap and enjoyed all...More

Much of the 4th star here is for the journey to and from Weltenberger. You take a river boat from Kelheim. Which was gorgeous. The abbey itself is pretty, and I'd recommend walking to the top of the hill for a view of the river....More

Monastery Weltenburg is amazing!! I've been told to go there since it has apparently the best "Weißwürste" in the world by more than one person! Unfortunately we were too late for that, but we had an amazing time! Our waiter was amazing - calm, friendly,...More

The church is extraordinary. The statue of ST George on the altar is a must see. The sculptures are interesting and unlike what you see in many other churches. Outside the abbey the beer garden is a great place to sample the local beer and...More

The tour to the abbey by boat is a highlight in itself . The church is a fine example of gothic architecture, but to get the best out of it you really need a guide to a plain the art pieces.

really not. The church was nice. There was no brewery tour and the highlight was a beer tasting with a pretzel. OK but not what I was expecting.

The boats are not small, most of their boats take 500-600 people. They appear to have a 150 person boat too, but I've never seen that. Also travelling on the river it is normally a relatively smooth ride.
