Itinerary

The town is the best preserved large town in Germany and the entire town is an UNESCO World Heritage Site. Enjoy your stay in the Medieval narrow streets.

It is worthwhile to take your first rest at Walhalla, which towers above the Danube. Passing Wörth castle you will reach Straubing with its town tower as its impressive symbol.

Today, you cycle first through Bogen, which became famous in 1104 for the discovery of the painting of the pregnant Madonna. Afterwards you follow the river Danube till you have to cross it in Deggendorf to arrive in the beautiful city of Plattling.

Today’s section sticks close to the banks of the Isar. There is enough time for a visit to the adventure pool, Caprina, in Dingolfing. The ducal town of Landshut was not only more important than Munich for hundreds of years, but even today, has not lost the shine of its elegant buildings, such as the Trausnitz castle or St. Martin‘s Church, which has the tallest brick tower in the world.

The surrounding riverside meadows to the left and right of the Isar banks are the most prominent feature of the route. Moorsburg is home to a wonderful collegiate church. Freising is also known for its churches. For 1000 years, the town was the residence of the Prince-Bishop of Bavaria. With an additional overnight stay, you have the time to discover Munich by bike or by tram.

The route now takes you north through the hops fields of the Hallertau valley. The Mainburg monastery, which, despite its name, is not situated on the River Main, but on the River Abens, is still home, today, to the Pauline monks. The historic centre of Abensberg, your destination today, is very beautiful.

From Bad Gägging, you follow the River Danube to the Weltenburg monastery. This is where you go on board boat, which takes you through the famous Danube Gorge to Kelheim. It is well worth visiting the Royal Thermal Baths in Bad Abbach before you cycle back to Regensburg.

After breakfast your cycling tour comes to an end.

Tour character

Mainly separate cycle paths mostly gravelled, between Freising and Abensberg hilly.

Nice tour
Lovely tour of nice Bavaria. Very good accomodation. Excellent rental bikes. Some inconvenience - most of roads are gravelled, it would be better if they are more smooth :) Pity that it was impossible to make a planned boat trip because of the low water level in Danube. Nevertheless we managed to make a very nice trip on the small wooden boat through the beautiful Danube Gorge. We appreciate that Eurobike and its partner Radweg-Reisen were able to make a refund for an unused boat trip without any delays.

Anstrengender als erwartet
Schöne Orte und idyllische Flusslandschaften. Der unbefestigte Isar-Radweg (viel grober Schotter und Schlaglöcher) erforderte viel Aufmerksamkeit, sodass man die Umgebung nicht in vollen Zügen genießen konnte - mit ungefedertem Leihrad noch problematischer. Der Weg durch die Donauauen und die Schifffahrt durch den Donaudurchbruch waren echte Highlights. Die Lage der Hotels auf der Strecke (immer im Zentrum) war gut gewählt.

Liebe Frau Frank! Zuallererst möchte ich Ihnen herzlich dafür danken, dass Sie sich die Zeit genommen haben, uns diese Zeilen zu schreiben. Es freut mich außerordentlich, dass Ihnen die Tour im Großen und Ganzen so gut gefallen hat. Wir sind stets darum bemüht, unsere Touren zu verbessern und freuen uns daher über jegliche Art von Bewertung. Die meisten unserer Gäste sind mit der Streckungführung dieser Tour sehr zufrieden, da der Radweg direkt an der Isar entlang verläuft. Eine alternative Streckenführung würde demnach nicht am Fluss, sondern eher auf Nebenstraßen führen. Auch wenn ein anderer Streckenbelag vielleicht manchmal angenehmer zu fahren ist, wird man doch mit der wunderbaren Landschaft entlang der Isar belohnt. Es zahlt sich auf alle Fälle aus! Wir hoffen, dass dieser kleine Punkt Ihre Urlaubsstimmung nicht getrübt hat und dass wir Ihnen auch nächstes Jahr wieder bei Ihrer Urlaubsplanung behilflich sein dürfen!
